Hawaiian Pineapple Mango Green/The Tea Farm. . . . .

Today I was craving a sweet something or other and thought with this new health kick I’m on- that I would try to curve this craving with tea. I’ve done it before but always end up justifying a cookie and the end of the cuppa. What can I say? Shortbread cookies just to with tea beautifully!

Looking over my teas that I needed to pay some attention, I came across this blend, Hawaiian Pineapple Mango Green- a green tea blended with pieces of pineapple and mango.  Figured that combination of flavors would be perfect to keep me from reaching from the cookie jar. . .and I was right!

With water prepped right around 180F and then steeped for about 3 minutes- the tea just didn’t have the umpf of flavor I was looking for. I could taste the green tea base, which was pleasant enough, but I wasn’t getting the pineapple or the mango.  I decided I could wait a few more minutes and steeped the tea for about 8 minutes.  Took another sip and was greeted with that sweet pineapple and mango flavors I was looking for. The flavors were sweet and I found myself not needing the cookie after all.

I can imagine this tea would be delicious in the summer iced giving you all the tropical vibes you can handle!

Taster’s Review:

I am quite fond of banana flavored teas, so when I find one, I usually order it right away.  Such is the case with this tea from The Tea Farm!

The green tea flavor is definitely the most prominent flavor in this cup, but it is not overly aggressive and doesn’t overpower the banana.  It has a fresh, vegetative taste that makes for a delightful contrast to the banana essence.  It is mildly sweet and has a nice mouthfeel.  A low astringency level here, and no bitterness (just don’t over-steep it or brew at too high a temperature!)

The banana flavor is delicate but delicious.  It actually tastes a bit more like plantain than banana to me, because it doesn’t taste as sweet as a banana, it tastes more like a savory, slightly starchy plantain.  Very pleasant.

This is a wonderful offering from The Tea Farm, and has inspired me to explore their teas further!
