    I nearly deleted this thread as a duplicate. Please use different titles for different questions; and it helps if your title refers specifically to the nature of the problem.

    Your sentence might be correct, but you probably don't need all those differnt tenses. To know whether you do, we'd need some context: for example, did Tina list the ingredients in the phone call (=> simple past) or in the phone call did she just reiterate what she had said in a previous conversation (=> past perfect).

    'Can' is fine; 'could' would also be fine.
