The scent of the dry leaf for this tea is the juiciest pineapple you could ever imagine. Like you just cut in to a fresh pineapple and can’t wait to eat it. Lordy, the scent alone is amazing.
Brewed, the scent carries over, which is killing me. I don’t drink my teas super hot, I usually wait until they’re on the edge of lukewarm, but I might risk burning my mouth on this one.
Oddly enough, I wasn’t that interested in this tea, it’s one my wife picked out to sample. Ginger and lemon usually aren’t my bag, nor are greens, but I’ll be damned if this one isn’t calling my name. If the taste lives up to the scent, this would make a gorgeous sangria in the summer.
Okay! Okay, so this is good. Not as juicy as the scent, but that would be just about impossible. It’s still juicy as hell, but the ginger and lemongrass round out the sip a little. The pineapple is definitely present, but it’s playing well with the others in this jungle. This is definitely a hit for me and I think my wife will like it even more than I do.
