Tea of the Week for July 9, 2018!
I absolutely LOVE pineapple - and my favorite way to prepare it is to grill fresh spears of pineapple over charcoal. The fruit spears take on a slight smokiness from the charcoal grilling while the natural sugars accumulate on the surface and become caramelized from the intense heat. Grilled pineapple is one of my favorite summertime treats!
So I decided to try to recreate it in tea form: I started with organic Assam and an Assamica grown in the Yunnan province and added just a bit of Lapsang Souchong to the blend for a touch of smokiness. Then I added a bunch of diced pineapples and a kiss of caramel essence.
This tea is true to the name: it tastes like grilled pineapple - only better because - TEA!
