About Pineapple Ginger
TEA TYPE : GREEN TEA
Tea Forté’s Pineapple Ginger is an exceptional green tea blend, pairing the subtle spice of ginger with the sweetness of pineapple for a tropical treat. Featuring small cubes of pineapple amid ginger shavings and delicate green tea leaves, this relaxing island drink balances the two extremes with marigold flowers and the light botanical taste of green tea. The result is an easy-drinking tea, perfectly enjoyed hot or iced.
Pineapple is a popular, spiky fruit known for its distinctive shape and sweet, stringy flesh. This herbaceous perennial is grown primarily in Costa Rica, Brazil, and the Philippines. Cultivated pineapples are pollinated by hand, while those in the wild are pollinated by hummingbirds. Ginger, another herbaceous perennial, is known for its root, which is a popular ingredient in folk medicine and culinary culture. It comes to us from the tropical rainforests across India and South Asia.
When enjoying a cup of Pineapple Ginger, a spoonful of sugar or honey brings the fruit front and center while calming the ginger’s kick. Tea purists, however, may enjoy it simply steeped in water without any accouterments. It may be served hot or iced, but never steeped for more than 4 minutes to avoid bitterness.
