I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I am a huge fan of The Republic of Tea. I love every flavor I’ve tried, and I love the tins that it comes in.
Although I have been cutting caffeine out of my life, this morning is a grey, rainy dreary morning and I needed a little kick. I usually like my fruity teas cold, but this was the only caffeinated tea I had, so I brewed myself a warm cup.
This tea is amazing! It tastes really good warm, I’m enjoying it which is a surprise to be honest!
The ginger kind of balances out the sweetness of the pineapple. It’s really well balanced, the pineapple isn’t too sweet, and the ginger isn’t too spicy. It’s a perfect cup of tea. It’s tropical without being too tropical if that makes sense. I don’t feel like I’m drinking a pina colada!
This is a tea that is delicious warm, and I’m sure would be very refreshing iced. I will be making a batch of iced pineapple ginger tea very, very soon. It’s reminding me of something I’ve had in the past and I just can’t put my finger on it. It’s smooth and flavorful, and since it’s green tea it has just a small amount of caffeine. I feel peppier and cheerful on this grey, rainy day which I needed. I’m imagining a sunny, tropical island and not a raindrop in sight!
If you haven’t tried Republic of Tea yet, I can’t recommend them enough. They make really stellar teas in a range of flavors. They have black teas and green teas and herbal teas. Anything you could imagine they have.
They’re on of my favorite tea companies!
