Wednesday is Green Tea, White Tea, Rooibos, Oolong and Tisane (Herbal) Review Day!
I’ve been on a fruit kick recently. I bought a big container of grapefruit. I’ve been eating apples constantly. And There’s this Pineapple Guava Green Tea from 52teas to close the chapter out!

Frank has done it again! This amazingly well balanced green tea is made of medium length leaves darker green like a gyokuro or a dark sencha. There are some stems but mostly I noticed guava chunks and pineapple bits mixed in.
This tea brews to a light pineapple yellow with a light orange tinge and is fragrant… mostly smelling of smooth guava scents with some subtle sencha notes.
The flavor is almost opposite the aroma providing heavy pineapple flavors but decidedly less on the guava. This tea is clearly a sencha though, with light vegetal notes and a typical green tea tail.
I would easily recommend this tea from 52teas to fans of either of its included tropical fruits. It’s a smooth and easy drink which certainly just adds to the enjoyment.
