From Lupicia

PINEAPPLE BARLEY TEA is an aromatic six-rowed barley produced in Japan scented with fresh pineapples. The sweet smell of pineapple is reminiscent of a tropical island.

My apologies to Canadian Steepsterites – I honestly had not known about the hundreds of wildfires you’re dealing with until the smoke started wafting its way down the east coast. So, first and foremost, sending wishes for your health and safety and that of your loved ones!

Even with the windows closed and a filter on, the smoke is getting notably stronger, so hot tea doesn’t feel particularly desirable at the moment. Thankfully, I had this cold brew going in the fridge. I’m not sure whether I’ve ever cold-brewed it before, but it works well. Three teabags in a large pitcher turned out to be the right ratio for a roasty, almost toasted buckwheat-esque tea with a delicate pineapple flavor.

Is THAT why we got the air quality alerts all the way down here in NC today? I am so sorry to hear that.

Sipdown! (2 | 2)

I should really drink these barley tisanes more often, I forget how much I like them. The roasted barley has such a lovely natural sweetness and is so mellow, it’s just wonderfully cozy as a hot tea. And then the pineapple adds a fruitiness that somehow works with the toasty notes.

So good! Definitely a reorder, but happily I still have some of the watermelon version left.

That sounds amazing! I know someone who would probably love this, so maybe I will give myself permission to order it, try it with them, and then give it away. Ha ha! That way I don’t increase my cupboard!

Oh, that does sound nice!

They’re definitely meant to be cold-brewed, and they’re delicious that way as well! But I also love them as a hot cuppa.

Sipdown (126)!

Added a splash of White Rum this time, in an attempt to dull the “fish” smell I strongly smell with this one, both dry and steeped…

- Went surprisingly well with the white rum!
- Suppose that makes sense because Pineapple/Rum is not really a stretch at all
- Still very weird, but good weird for sure
- And while it still SMELLED “fishy” (it’s never tasted fishy) it wasn’t as strong

I now have a sample of Apple Barley from VariaTEA to try so I’ll certainly be looking out for that fish smell to see if it’s just this flavour, or if it’s something that’s just linked to Lupicia’s barley teas in general…

Still thank you Cameron B. for this one! I did enjoy it overall, even with fish smell.

Cameron B.

Now I’m going to be thinking “fish” when I try this! Can’t wait to see how Apple Barley is, I haven’t tried that one yet. :D

Lupiressmoon

Ive read fish smell comes from it getting moist or wet at some point. Could that be what’s wrong?

Roswell Strange

I suppose it’s definitely a possibility; though I don’t recall anything moistening the teabags after they’d arrived – and they were dry upon getting here. I don’t know.

Kittenna

I’ve noticed the fishiness with the barley teas before. Not as off-putting as pu’erh but still not overly appetizing.

Cameron B.

I didn’t get any fish with this one. :P

For a barley tea, it is very strong flavored. I almost thought it was coffee at first, but it is in fact just a very strong barley tea—which may be perfect for coffee lovers trying to get off their coffee kick. It is, of course like other barley teas, caffeine-free as well. The pineapple aroma and flavor, in my opinion, is great. It is stronger than I expected, but not overwhelming to me. If someone dislikes pineapple, this is probably not a tea for them, though. Overall, it’s a really great tea worth trying if you like stronger barley tea. Sometimes, I do wish it was just a bit lighter though.
