Tea with a taste of pine

In Sweden you can find tea that actually tastes of (and is made using) pine. In Japan, you can find tea that is named as if it tasted of pine, but this is actually the Japanese word for pineapple (which is the English word, shortened down to the more normal length of words in Japanese by just throwing away the last part, even though this makes it into a different English word :-) ).
