The name of this tea is quite accurate. This dry tea smells like delicious candied pineapple with perfumey floral notes. The tea tastes like smooth, light, green, flowery oolong. There is the same candied pineapple taste but it is light and subtle. Tastes very natural and not fake or artificial. I think the flavours would have been stronger if I had steeped longer, but I chose to keep it as a short steep and I quite like it this way. I will definitely have to add some brown rock sugar as suggested for next time.

Funny you mentioned the name. I was just thinking about changing the name to Hawaiian Pineapple Oolong.

I think that Hawaiin Pineapple works well too. There is nothing better than a fresh picked ripe pineapple from Hawaii. Totally different than anything you get here (in Canada) anyway.

Well, it was either that or something Psych (the tv show) related. Mmmm, pineapples and macadamia nuts from Hawaii are awesome. :)

What I love about the current name is that it’s completely accurate. You taste the florals and then the pineapple. Whatever you name it though, I’m going to keep it in my cupboard! :-)

You guys are making me rethink the name change. I was just worried that the current name wasn’t appealing enough.

I found the name intriguing.

Butiki Teas

Interesting! :)

I really like the name! But that name would be good too. Aw man, pineapple in Hawaii is A-MAZ-ING. And the macadamia nuts too. We went to a macadamia nut farm and I bought a huge bag of them…. yummy.

I love the actual name but it may be only because we don’t have here any hawaiian pineapple here in France so I have no idea how fantastic they can be

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
