“I first tasted this tea in a popular Italian restaurant in my college hometown of Kailua. I have been craving it ever since, and have experimented with a few proportions. Add more tea leaves for a stronger tea, but do not steep longer or the tea will end up tasting bitter. (If it does, add a pinch of baking soda.) Always make something to your liking! This is also great to serve at showers.”

I took other reviewer's suggestions and upped the tea bags to six. Other than that, I made no other changes. I made this early this morning and let it set until lunch--there's not more than one cup left. We love this tea!



Gentle pineapple flavored tea - light, refreshing, sweet enough but not *sickening* sweet. But the pineapple flavor definitely dominates. This would be better kicking up the tea to probably six bags. I used a half cup of Splenda rather than the simple syrup, only to avoid the sugar.



This splendid beverage is a refreshing change from plain iced tea. I added simple syrup to taste, probably about 1/4 cup, and found that I was refilling the pitcher often as my guests went back again and again for refills.
