Geek Steep S2E13 – Pokemon: Sword & Shield
This is the tea that I chose to drink while recording – something that was gifted to me by Marika and, I believe, also the first time one of us has drank a tea on the podcast that also had coffee in it!?
It’s a weird tea because it’s a combination of pineapple, coffee, oolong, and rooibos and those are DEFINITELY all things that don’t sound like they should mix. I found it to be both off putting and also immediately captivating. There’s a roasted earthy quality to the coffee/oolong combination but the pineapple is a syrupy sweet soda style of pineapple and that’s… unique when paired.
I don’t think the name is accurate at all, but it kind of tastes like grilled pineapple? And, really, I fucking love grilled pineapple so maybe that’s just much better than it actually tasting like the cake!? It’s certainly a tea I’ll be drinking again outside of the podcast because it’s something I’m gonna need time to wrap my head around.
