Taster’s Review:

The first thing that I want to say about this Green Pineapple Tea from The Persimmon Tree is that it’s a very forgiving tea!  I brewed this tea in my Kati Tumbler and after I poured in the hot water (180°F), I forgot to set the timer!  Normally, I’d steep this for 2 minutes, but I’m quite sure that it brewed longer than that, probably closer to 3 1/2 to 4 minutes!  But as I sip this tea, I am detecting no bitterness.  It’s sweet and fruity and delicious!

I had expected some bitterness from an oversteeped green tea, but, I’m not getting any.  There is a slight astringency to the cup, but even then, I’m experiencing less astringency than I expected from it.

What I am experiencing is a fresh, vibrant tea with delightful tropical fruit notes.  The green tea is sweet and vegetal.  The vegetal note is somewhere between a grassy taste and steamed spinach.  There is a light creaminess to it too.  Somewhat buttery.

The pineapple offers a sweet-tart flavor and it is complemented with a little more tropical flair with notes of mango and papaya.  It’s a pleasant medley of tropical fruit that sends your taste buds on an exotic getaway!

When served warm, I find this to be very relaxing and soothing.  And it’s especially tasty iced.
