Another sample with a tropical vacation spot name. In this case, I don’t have to worry about the pineapple overshadowing other flavors because it’s the only flavor.
In the packet, the pineapple has a rather bitter scent, which worried me — but after steeping that’s gone. While it’s not exactly that sweet, ripe pineapple scent and flavor that makes eating fresh pineapple worthwhile, or even the candified dried version of sweet, it’s not bitter either.
The tea itself its visually weird in that it is rather cloudy and has some floaters on the surface. I’m looking at it more closely than most people probably would, but it has a sort of yellow pond water quality to it that I’d rather unsee.
It tastes good, though. I like the purity of it — the pineapple only factor. If I ruled the world (or had a tea company) pineapple would only appear in green teas without other fruits so we don’t have to play “where’s the mango.”
