Taster’s Review:

I have been on such an SBT kick.  I started cold brewing tea and am completely obsessed with it.  And what is the easiest way to cold brew teas- Southern Boy Teas!

So during the last sale, I stocked up.  And I went through these awesome iced tea pouches quick!  This is one of the ones that I instantly said “Yep” and threw it in my cart.

Last night threw this one in my pitcher, added water, and into the fridge it went.  This morning I poured myself a huge glass of it, threw some ice in it, and underwent my morning routine of taking my kids to school.

I was hoping this would be one that I would fall completely 100% in love with . . .but alas no.  This tastes like a solid white tea.  That part I love. It has that delicate touch to it.    The part I am not 100% on is the lime.  I really didn’t pick up any of the lemon at all.  Just lime.  And it is more of a tart lime.  A bold lime.  A hit you in the face sort of lime.  Which is fine, but I really wanted that lemon lime taste.  I stopped drinking soda about 6 months ago and Diet Sprite or Diet Sierra Mist I still crave.  I was hoping this would take the place of those cravings and help me with my sweet tooth when I have those cravings.  Maybe if I tried again or if I brewed it up hot, maybe the lemon would come out more. I’m sure if I played around with it, they would.  Or if I added in some sugar.  That might help too.

This is delicious if you are looking for a lime tea with a delicate white tea base or finish.  Don’t get me wrong, this is very tasty.  Just not what my little ol heart was wanting at the time.

Taster’s Review:

Pineapple Upside Down Cake used to be one of my favorite desserts my mom would make as a child.  Growing up, my brothers and I were never fans of the traditional birthday cake.  My poor mom would always ending up baking a pie or some other dessert (she tried once to make orange fluff and put candles in it-true story).  She would ask us if we were sure we didn’t want a chocolate cake and we would always say no, we want pie or we want cheesecake.  Or we would ask for Pineapple Upside Down Cake.  Which was a little different than the traditional Pineapple Upside Down Cake.  My mom would make it as a cheesecake instead.  To this day, even as adults,we devour that dessert whenever she makes it.  And she makes a healthy version of it now too- so you don’t have to feel guilty about cramming huge bites of it in your face.

This tea brought all those warm and fuzzy memories to me.  This tea reminds me of that dessert my mom makes minus the cheesecake part.  So good! The green tea provides a rich buttery base.  The pineapple flavor is mixed in with just the right amount of brown sugar and maraschino cherry flavoring.  You can seriously taste each flavor separately.  But they do mingle very well together.  The only flavor I didn’t pick up was the yellow cake but I’m wondering if that was a flavor that the green tea kind of overshadowed.  Oh well.  Regardless I am really enjoying this one.

I cold brewed this one and was very happy with the results.  I didn’t try making it up like a hot beverage because I ended up steeping this one until there were just no more infusions in the poor little tea pouch.  I  see myself picking more of this one up for sure.  This one is going to be a fantastic addition to those teas I keep on hand to keep my sweet tooth from demanding a piece of candy or junk food around 2pm each work day.
