I’m still an oolong newbie but I’m finding myself drawn to these lovely teas. This one was an unexpected purchase after a friendly clerk at a DAVIDs Tea shop recommended it.
The first thing that struck me was the fragrance of dried pineapple. I love pineapple! Even dried it has a juicy quality that makes me feel it’s dripping down my chin. After steeping, the pineapple fragrance was still pronounced but when I sipped the tea its flavor was more subtle than I expected.
I re-steeped the leaves for a second cup of tea and the pineapple flavor was more toned down but still tasty. I enjoy this tea and agree with some other posters’ comments that it seems to be more of a Spring/Summer tea than an Autumn/Winter one. I have to admit I probably would only buy this tea again if I had a coupon or discount, but that says more about my budget than the quality and flavor of this tea.
