It’s my birthday and my husband gave me a variable electric kettle (yay!). This is my first tea brewed with it! :)

Dry: Oolong rolled loose tea leaves and large chunks of dried pineapple. Smells like candied pineapple straight out of the sample bag, very sweet and delicious. My husband (who loves pineapple) said, “What is it? Smells good!”

Steeped: The pineapple fragrance dry smells more like dried apricots with a floral note steeped. Lovely unfurling oolong leaves always pleasant to watch in the infuser.

Taste: This is a nice light and fruity tea. The floral oolong note is lovely, with the dried apricots and pineapple really shining through. If you are looking for something with a lot of complexity, this is not it. Very pleasant oolong though overall. I think this would really shine as an iced tea in the summer. This was sent as a sampler, but I might need to pick up a bag at some point.
