Teabox Tuesday! I grabbed this from the Discovery Teabox; I have never heard of this company, and it appears this flavor has been discontinued. Steeped this up this evening in my small dobin. I usually don’t make green tea in the evening, but I’m at least making this rather early tonight.
It actually smells a little floral to me, oddly enough, though there is an apparent pineapple aroma. The tea is indeed just a bit floral with some tart citrus notes as well, with a fairly forward pineapple flavor, but despite the fruitiness, the green tea, which has a very mild grassiness, is quite astringent in the aftertaste. I get a slight tart/sour feeling at the back of my tongue as a result. Half a teaspoon of honey did help improve the astringency some.
A fairly average cup.
