drank Pineapple Oolong by Lupicia
93 tasting notes

Huuuuuuge thanks to Sil who sent this my way! I’ve been drinking this practically nonstop for the last two days. A glorious 3.5L later, it’s about damn time I get around to writing up this tasting note.

To sum this tea up: sweet, juicy pineapple and buttery oolong with a flavor that will outlast your ability to keep drinking.

I thoroughly enjoyed four steeps of this tea (adding 1 min each time). The first tasted of sweet pineapple juice with a somewhat light oolong flavor in the background. With successive steeps the pineapple calmed down a bit but was always detectible in the flavor. The oolong really came to life in the second or third steep as its flavor came to the forefront. This is an excellent tea that I could see becoming a staple in my cupboard.

The pineapple oolong is definitely on my wish list for my next Butiki order. I also have the one from David’s, so I’ll have to see how that one compares. Thanks agin!

Bio

I’m a Floridian living in Kansas and currently pursuing a physics Ph.D. by day (…and by night, who am I kidding?) with an immense love for all things tea.

Rating Scheme:

<50 = Undrinkable.
50-59 = Drinkable, but not my cuppa.
60-69 = Decent, but nothing to write home about.
70-79 = Good tea that I drink occasionally. Probably will not restock when it runs out.
80-89 = Very tasty. May or may not restock when it runs out.
90-100 = Delicious. A staple in my collection.
