Wonderful tastes and colors create a tea that is delightful to brew and delicious to drink! Pineapple Papaya Green uses Chinese Sencha as its base, a green tea with slender leaves that produces a yellow cup and a naturally sweet flavor. The Sencha is followed by pineapple pieces and blue malva flowers, which deliver soothing and healing vitamins and enzymes. Delight in this sensational tea with health benefits to boot!
Ingredients- Sencha green tea, pineapple pieces, blue malva flowers and fruit flavor.
When I first steeped this tea, I steeped it at a low temperature (as I generally do with green teas) for three minutes. And, I found that the flavor was very mild, to the point of being very difficult to discern. So, I decided to steep it for another two full minutes, and the flavor was a little stronger. A drizzle of agave nectar really helped the flavors to pop.
The Sencha base is smooth and sweet with a creamy buttery note. The pineapple and papaya flavors lend their sweet tropical flair to the cup. The pineapple has a nice tangy note to it that tickles the tip of the tongue in the aftertaste.
As I mentioned at the start of this review, these flavors are a bit on the softer side. But that’s OK, because the Sencha is front and center here and that is the way it should be. It is a light, refreshing cup that is a pleasure to sip. This is good iced, too, but I would recommend adding a little bit more sweetener to it to help enhance the flavor.
