4 Tasting Notes
I found that I had to brew this tea extra strong to get a full flavor out of it, as I have found with most of the teavana teas I’ve tried. When I brewed it according to the directions, it was a light pink color and although the flavored were there, they were very light. After I doubled the amount of tea it was much more enjoyable. I could drink it everyday. It comes out a bright red color and many different notes are tasted in the tea this way. I love it!
I was very pleased with this tea! I bought an ounce to try and came running back into the store the next day to get more!I don’t really like the smell of the dry leaves. I think the “grilled” toasty smell threw me off a little but it tastes great. The pineapple notes are just subtle enough to not overtake the tea while still adding sweetness and a light flavor to the tea. The toasty flavor from the rice comes after the pineapple. It did not taste burnt to me at all but was a nice counter to the sweetness of the pineapple. I have only had this hot and unsweetened and I usually can only brew this a second time before the flavor gives out.
