Crowning glory

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.

This is a sample I’ve had for a while from a David’s Tea order. I’ve been avoiding it since fruit teas aren’t my favorite. The tea leaves/pineapple bits smelled quite sweet when I opened it so I was worried it would be too sweet. Once brewed it wasn’t too bad. More tart than sweet. There’s a lot of pineapple flavor and less oolong flavor. Definitely an interesting mix.

This one is thanks to Janelle! I was craving an apricot oolong and lo and behold I actually had one (with pineapple too!) There are big pieces of apricot and pineapple in this bright green bundled oolong. I used a teaspoon and a quarter to even out the amount for the sipdown..

Steep #1 // 22 min after boiling // 4 min steep
There is an off-putting scent to the cup before I take a sip… almost like the preservatives of the pineapple & apricot or something… but it disappears further down the cup. I’ve had a stray oolong actually taste like pineapple on its own, so this is the perfect pairing. The color of the cup actually is pineapple colored (yet clear of course). The flavor is nice – the pineapple blends with the oolong. I’m not sure I’m actually tasting apricot. Haven’t had too many of those anyway. I can’t really taste the oolong on its own. The pineapple could have tasted fresher though… there was something preservative-like about it… like a candied pineapple rather than a freshly chopped juicy pineapple, but that is to be expected. Dries the mouth a bit, though it’s thirst quenching in a way. I could probably drink the entire cup within seconds.

Steep #2 // 22 min after boiling // 6-7 min
I would think 6-7 minutes would oversteep these leaves (it was Davidstea’s suggestion) but they really didn’t. It makes the oolong taste more like the pineapple and the pineapple has lost that preservative flavor, so it’s a better cup. (Maybe I should have rinsed the leaves the first cup?) There is a mellowness and a sweetness to it. I’m really surprised these leaves didn’t get tangy. I had the second steep with some actual pineapple chunks with my breakfast this morning. I love pineapple. This isn’t a bad blend – I would have liked more apricot flavor.

This is a coldbrew disappointment. I brewed it for about 24 hours with more than enough leaf, but it is weak as heck. I added a drop or two of vanilla agave and that is all I can taste. I was hoping for a strong, sweet pineapple and what I got was tangy vanilla. Boo. I’ll have to try this hot before I decide how I feel about it.


Really! I was just thinking of cracking open my pouch and cold brewing some. I was so sure it would make a good one. That’s too bad.

I know, I was so disappointed by it. Maybe I’ll coldbrew again for tomorrow with sugar instead and see how that goes.

a very light oolong, the sweet notes of the pineapple are really evident. the tea is a light yellow colour after steeping for around seven minutes. i love this tea because it’s sweet enough to not need sweetener, but it’s not an “artificial” sweet taste.

definitely my favorite davidstea oolong out of the ones i’ve tried thus far! i absolutely love it warm, and it’s equally delicious as an iced tea. i enjoy this one so much that i’ll be repurchasing it before i run out of it!

It’s nice. The pineapple smell is stronger than the taste.

I don’t really know what to say about this tea. Oolong tea has a particular taste which is hard to describe for me. I could tell this tea reminds me of Bamboozled and Happy Kombucha (both from David’s tea collection). I believe you get what’s expected from this one: Oolong taste + exotic fruity taste.

Hmmm….. This tea is an exceptional one for sure. The first time I tasted this tea was when it was the tea of the day. Words could not express how I hard I had to try to swallow the tea and finish what was in my sample cup. I was totally turned off by it.

Then, I ordered some teas online and this was one of my free samples. So I steeped it, with the intention of giving it to my family to drink. Then (here I go again with another one of my famous impulses) I decided to take a sip, and believe me, I drank the rest of the pot! I don’t know what happened that first day, but my opinion of pineapple oolong had just done a 360 and I had fallen in love.

The moral of this story is to act on your impulses.


The moral is to always give teas a second chance, when it’s free ;)

As for the tea it self, it is super super sweet from all the pineapple it pretty much superposes the oolong taste. So you could call it pineapple tea, because that is all you will taste (which is not a bad thing!).

A smooth oolong base with floral and fruity notes on top that actually taste and smell like pineapple. The fruit flavor is a lot more spot-on than other pineapple teas I have tried. Served warm, the fruit notes are bold with that similarity to fresh cut chunks of pineapple, but I really prefer this iced, because the citrus sweet tang of the pineapple was tempered into a refreshing drink.

This was a David’s Tea sample. It’s my first pineapple tea, and. As surprised that it wasn’t stronger. I
The pineapple scent was very strong, so I was expecting the flavor to be stronger. I liked this, though I think it’s more spring/summer than fall, which we’re getting into.

As a note; I’m having trouble adjusting my rates on the iPad. I may have to wait format until,I’m on the computer. It was about 200 degrees for 3 minutes.

2nd steeping – oddly the pineapple flavor is a lot stronger with this steep than the first. Maybe I steeped it too long? I added some milk, but it didn’t seem to tone it down a lot. It’s certainly not bad, but I don’t think I’d order any of it.

I like it! A lot! Reminds me of the pineapple lifesavers, which were always my favourites. I don’t explicitly taste the apricot, but I think it probably just combines with the other flavours to give the tea a fruity sweetness.

I could definitely taste the oolong, but probably because I over-steeped (it didn’t get bitter, though). Something I want to try next time: pick all of the fruit pieces out and drop them in the bottom of the cup, and put the oolong leaves in the filter. Then I can let the tea get fruitier and fruitier without leaving the leaves in there to burn. Ah, the possibilities…

I would definitely buy this one again.
