The warm­ing weath­er in anti­cip­a­tion of sum­mer calls for trop­ic­al teas. Of course, these teas are best enjoyed as a refresh­ing iced tea, but just as well hot in an office with air con­di­tion­ing set to just above freez­ing. And this is Twinings Pineapple & Grapefruit Green Tea.

Steeping one tea bag in 200 ml of 75°C water for 90 seconds yields a golden liquor. The infu­sion smells pleas­antly trop­ic­al with pro­nounced notes of pine­apple, while a veget­al fla­vour from the green tea comes through in the head, fol­lowed quickly by a slight sharp­ness of grapefruit. The sweet and trop­ic­al notes of ripe pine­apple emerge brightly in the body, lend­ing a slight nat­ur­al sweet­ness to the tea that bal­ances the slight astrin­gency and bit­ter­ness from the green tea and grapefruit that ree­m­erge in the tail before linger­ing long in the after­taste.
