This is some old ass tea. Best by Jan 2013.

Made a pot using three bags for me and the two housemates after dinner. The pineapple, mango and peach flavorings were pretty strong and melded well while still allowing the earthy and grassy green tea to come through. I also tasted a light jasmine breeze underneath, though there’s no mention of jasmine flavoring being in this tea. The lemongrass, flowers and cinnamon were not detectable but maybe they served as a bridge between the taste of an earthy green tea and brighter fruit flavors.

For a flavored green tea, this was pretty good.

With a quick search of the webz, it looks like this tea has been discontinued.

Flavors: Earth, Grass, Jasmine, Mango, Peach, Pineapple

Bio

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng pu’er, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? While I may not mention those effects in tea notes, it is what I value most. Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
