drank Pineapple Shaman by Wise Ape Tea
2414 tasting notes

(Back in elementary school, our fourth grade teacher would read poetry to us of a morning, and there was one that started, I meant to do my work today, but a brown bird sang in an apple tree… and ended, what else could I do but laugh and go? Yeah. That’s why I’m outside in the glider savoring First Day of Spring sunshine.)

I am also savoring (or at least I was; cup’s empty now) a really unusual tea that I could learn to love. Normally, I’m not a lapsang fan—I keep a little around for “dare drinks” when I serve tea to my Sunday kids. They call it “bacon tea” and a few ask for more.
However, lapsang is what makes this fruit-darjeeling-herb bonanza unique. It tastes like grilled pineapple, which we love at our house. Just enough smoke to authenticize the other ingredients. Really enjoyable.

Youngest says she would never have made it through higher maths without lapsang. She loved it from a young age. I think it is delicious paired with ice cream! I love that you have dare teas!

Okay, I am going to have to try the ice cream thing. We have some Blue Bunny Wedding Cake in the freezer and I need an excuse anyway!
