drank Pineapple Shaman by Wise Ape Tea
2408 tasting notes

OK, I brought this to work not only to enjoy, but to freak out my non-teaist work buddies. (“Here! Smell this!” to the same friend who says Constant Comment smells like “a well-greased old lady.”)

That said, I can’t remember trying (and enjoying) a blend this unusual in a long time. Most of the lapsang blends I’ve sampled over the years are far too strong and smoky; in this case, there’s just enough of a hint to accent the pineapple and peppery spices. Currently sold out at Wise Ape, but I hope to see it resurface so you can try some ;)

This sounds interesting!

I’m not sure what I’d recommend for a food pairing, but it made me ask my husband to grill hamburgers this weekend :)
