All you smell when you open the bag is pure Intense pineapple-ness. Its a candied type of pineapple aroma, rather than fresh juicy pineapple, so perhaps best as an after dinner – dessert tea to wash down any rich food you’ve had.

There are no pineapple chunks in this tea though, its all green tea leaves in the bag, and most likely just pineapple flavouring. I can’t tell if its natural or artificial (no ingredient listing). I got this as a souvenir from a friend who visited Hawaii a couple of years ago.

Its interesting that the pineapple flavour has stayed fresh so long (the last time I drank this was a year ago). Or maybe its the green tea flavour weakening so it doesn’t mute the pineapple as much anymore…?

finding myself in hot water again and again…

I grew up in a tea drinking culture, but my parents were seriously hung up on jasmine tea and oolong tea, so I never really had much exposure to other teas. My horizons expanded when I moved to Japan and discovered genmaicha (roasted rice tea aka popcorn tea). after that, I discovered black teas, red teas, and flavoured teas, how different teas could be by the region, processing methods, water used.

Now I can’t get enough of it!

I experiment with different teas, blending them sometimes to see what the outcome would be. I find my tastes to be quite diverse, but run away from the more floral side of things. Tie Kwan Yin is probably the only one that most people seem to enjoy, that I don’t. Otherwise I am game for most teas. Fruity? love it. Smoky? Mmm. Earthy? bring it on! Light and vegetal? keep pouring!
