Tea Review & Kombucha Recipe: Pineapple Paradise from Boston Tea

The green tea blend, containing Sencha whole-leaf tea with pineapple bits, lemon peel and rose petals is fruity and a bit floral.  It is by far, the most attractive and fragrant green tea I’ve purchased. I brew most of loose tea and coffee using a French press. I paid $16 for a 4-cup French press at Starbucks. More recently, I found a 6-cup press via Amazon for $11.
