Third green tea tasting note today :D

I agree with Chi Chieko completely. 5-7 minutes as suggested must be too much for greens, so I did maybe about 3 minutes and as there was too little water, I did only 200 ml.

Turned out pretty nice, base tea was somehow basic, but pineapple was certainly there. Unfortunately, it was somehow one-dimensional, simple flavouring. Would enjoy some other tropic fruits there, or they claim it is with ginger, but I do not get any spicy notes. Maybe loose leaf would be bit better.

5-7 minutes for green tea? What in the world??

Martin Bednář

Exactly my thoughts tea-sipper. Even for black tea base it would be too much. Maybe good steeping time for fruit ones? Dunno.

In fruit teas, the hibiscus would get too strong. So you’re right, 5-7 minutes would be too long for most teas!

Martin Bednář

True as well. Just weird steeping parameters. Luckily I usually do it as I think it’s best. Sometimes shorter, sometimes longer.

This impulse buy at an international grocery store definitely paid off. The pineapple scent is delicious and incredibly refreshing, and the taste has a just enough body. I’ll be disappointed when I run out!

The package suggests brewing for 7-10 minutes. That is way too long since this is a green tea. That amount of time seems to be needed to hydrate the pieces of fruit. But then the tea is too bitter and overpowers the fruit flavor. I found it worked best with a 3-minute brewing time. I will try letting the tea soak in cool water first. This should help with getting a more even flavor distribution by hydrating the fruit pieces without the tea overpowering the subtle fruit flavors. Ok, just tried that. I think the green tea is just bitter. No joy!

I can’t taste the ginger in this tea. The pineapple flavor stands out and I believe it’s because of the added pineapple flavoring. I tasted the pieces of dried apple/pineapple and they were essentially tasteless. I have tried 3 of Greenfield’s teas and I haven’t been overly impressed. The packaging and descriptions are nice but the teas just aren’t great. I like my teas without sweetener or milk. This may be a good tea with lots of honey and milk but if I have to do that to make a tea taste “good”, then I really don’t need that tea.

Just to add, I bought my teas on sale. They were discontinued. The store told me the Greenfield teas were not good sellers. Would I recommend this tea? Kind of a yes/no/maybe kind of thing.
