This tea doesn’t take well to being oversteeped, it gets very bitter and chemically pretty fast. So I steep it near-boiling for 4 minutes exactly, and it comes out pretty nice. Not mind-blowing, but it tastes about how it smells when steeped under those conditions. To me, it smells and tastes like maple syrup flavored cake. I don’t get much in the way of pineapple, but I get a bit of cherry & I get a lot of sweetness and a hint of malty black tea.
I like it either black or with a little splash of milk – when I’ve tried to make this as a latte it gets pretty overpowered by the milk – unless you oversteep it, but then it’s kind of bitter and unpleasant anyway. I wouldn’t bother repurchasing this one as I’ve got quite a few teabags of it, but it’s quite nice. I’d recommend trying it.
