I am one of those people who routinely oversteep my tea, especially the first steeping in the morning. I put the leaves into my travel mug and then add hot water. I sip a little during breakfast and then throughout the morning. So, the first steeping of this, made in this style, was a bit strong and astringent for me. But, the second and third steepings were awesome! I could really taste the pineapple in this tea! Not a lot of milk flavor, but still really nice.
This morning I had this tea in a small tea pot and was able to drink the first brewing more quickly, and it was really smooth and not at all astringent. I added just a tiny bit of sugar to bring out the sweetness of the tea.
The only negative is that some of the leaves are broken. I prefer completely intact leaves.

Shared this one with my mom this morning. She is not a green or oolong drinker, but she really enjoyed it. I brought out the sweetness for us by adding a tsp of sugar to our 32 oz pot. It tasted smooth and quite a bit like pineapple. This is really becoming my favorite tea!
