I wasn't sure what to expect from this blend since it was a mix of several different varieties of green and white tea. The aroma of the steeped tea alone was enough to make my mouth water. I was also happy to find that I had never tasted a fruitier or juicier tasting tea than this one. It was sweet without being overdone and the pineapple provided just the right amount of tartness. Something tells me that this tea would be absolutely heavenly when prepared as an iced tea.
