Eh. I got this as a free sample & was really excited to try it. This is only the second oolong I have ever tried. So far, I am head over heels for milk oolong. This wasn’t bad. I just wouldn’t purchase this myself.

With their exotic, golden flavour and dramatic spiky crown, pineapples are clearly the king of the fruit world. Their original name was “Ananas,” from the Tupi word for “excellent fruit” – we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Here we blend big pieces of pineapple with Tie Kwan Yin oolong tea, for the perfect balance of fresh, fruity and floral. The result? A bright, refreshing blend that’s equally amazing hot or iced. Trust us – it’s like drinking a cup of sunshine.
Ingredients: Hand-rolled Ti Kwan Yin oolong, pineapple, apricot.

I got this as a to go cup, since I was told it’s being discontinued, and I figured I might as well try it while I still can (and stock up if it’s amazing.)
This tea started off really nice – floral oolong, very authentic pineapple flavour (maybe the best I’ve experienced in a tea yet), but there’s also a very strong medicinal note that gives this a kind of cough syrup quality that I’m just not enjoying.
I thought maybe I oversteeped it (probably), but adding more water and resteeping the leaves didn’t help.
Ah well, pineapple oolong, I will not be sad to see you go.

This is very unimpressive. I was hoping it could be a substitute for my beloved Butiki Flowery Pineapple Oolong. But where that tea tastes juicy and natural, this one is slightly drying and tastes more like pineapple candy than actual pineapple. I’m very glad to have tried this blend but the search for a quality pineapple oolong goes on. Thanks for the sample EmilyGee!
This smells so freakin good dry!!!!
First time trying it, had it straight with no sweetener/milk. The aroma was a not as fragrant as when it was dry. The flavour is quite nice, gets a little astringent towards the end which I suspect is from the oolong maybe, but still quite a nice pineapple taste. I’ll try it again later with a bit of sweetener or iced as I think this could be very nice that way.
Flavors: Apricot, Pineapple
So disappointed with this one. D: I thought that it would be more fruity and sweet, but it wasn’t. It just tasted like oolong and kinda vegetable-ish. The only fruity flavor was apricot. It tasted ever so faintly of apricot, but that was it. :( Sad times…
Well thank you for the sample, Darby! Glad to have not wasted my money!!
Flavors: Apricot, Vegetables
Bagged smell: very strong candied pineapple scent, it smells divine, especially for a pineapple lover.
Brewed smell: a bit more mellow on the pineapple smell, still yummy though
Brewed taste: More oolong than pineapple but pineapple is still evident, need just a few pieces of rock sugar to bring out the candied flavor which I highly enjoy. This will probably also make the tea wall.
This one came from Dexter! I’m really hoping this pineapple oolong won’t be as disappointing as Lupicia’s version was to me. Please be juicy and pineapple-y! The oolong itself is a medium green with some yellow tones, and it’s a mixture of some tightly-rolled pellets and some unrolled pieces. There are also chunks of what looks to be candied pineapple along with a few pieces of dried apricot. The dry scent is encouraging, I can smell sweet and tangy pineapple quite clearly.
The steeped tea smells very pineapple-y, I’m excited! Hm, this is pretty good. The pineapple flavor isn’t quite as strong as I would like, and, to be honest, it reminds me of pineapple gummy bears. But I like pineapple gummy bears! There’s not really much depth of flavor here, and I don’t taste the oolong much, it’s mostly there as a textural element. Not bad, but not great.
