Here’s our buttery sweet Chinese sencha blended with real dried pineapples and natural flavors including the essence of moist, yellow cake, pineapples, brown sugar and maraschino cherries. Don’t miss out, this one is going to go FAST!
Oh yum! Yummy yum yum!
I loved 52Teas Pineapple Upside-Down Cake flavored Honeybush, so I was pretty confident that I’d also like this. But, I didn’t think I’d like it better than that honeybush blend!
The buttery essence of the Chinese Sencha melds so well with the yellow cake flavoring, giving this tea more of that cake-y taste. This really tastes like Pineapple Upside-Down Cake!
The green tea base tastes sweet and fresh. There are big chunks of pineapple in the blend, and the flavor of the pineapple is that of a cooked, slightly caramelized pineapple. Sweet and juicy. The brown sugar is caramelized as well, giving this a very bake-y kind of taste.
The maraschino cherry taste is what really puts this one over the top for me. I can smell the cherry essence just before I take a sip, and then I taste the cherry flavor. It’s a very “inner-child” kind of satisfaction this flavor delivers, kind of like the sensation I’d experience when I’d eat the cherry off the top of a sundae. Those cherries always made everything just a little more special, and that is what the cherry essence does for this tea.
An absolutely delicious interpretation of a classic comfort food, this tea is one I’d highly recommend to anyone with a sweet tooth. This one is sure to satisfy!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
