The dried pineapple is mingled with quality Sencha in this taste of Hawaii. If you make iced tea, it makes a great addition to your summer tea time. One sip will transport you on a Hawaiian holiday, without the airfare.

The flavor of tropical pineapple and a hint of coconut force you to feel like you’re on vacation. Very sweet and creamy.

Den’s Preferred Brewing:
Water: 4oz boiled
Leaves: 2 grams or 1 heaping teaspoon
Steep: 30 sec
2nd Cup: Water boiled; Steep 15 sec

For 1 Iced Tea: Put 50% more amount of tea leaves into a teapot. Steep as directed for 1 hot tea. Once you brew it, put ices into the cup to lock the aroma.

I LOVE THIS!!!! I just celebrated my 30th birthday on Monday and my husband ordered two new tins for me for more tea!!! I claimed one of them for this tea because as soon as it is back in stock I want to order more. The tea tins are SO cute too- they are japanese doll tea tins. Love them! http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=japanese+tea+doll+canister&x=0&y=0
and this one:http://www.amazon.com/White-Hakata-Doll-Canister-Japan/dp/B004AMBMUQ/ref=sr_1_fkmr2_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1297976451&sr=8-1-fkmr2
And I just ordered the sakura sencha from Den’s tea. I am so very anxious to try some! Their senchas are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LiberTEAS

Happy belated Birthday!

KeenTeaThyme

Ditto on the belated B-day wishes! :)

Shinobi_cha

Herzlichen Glueckwunsch zum Geburtstag!

QuiltGuppy

Happy belated birthday! On Valentine’s Day, too, how neat. :) I also ordered the sakura sencha to try. It sounds really good. I didn’t see the pineapple one… I’ll have to try it, too!

Kristen

Right now the pineapple is out of stock but they emailed and said it should be back in stock in the next two weeks! It is really really good!!! I requested a sample of orange or grape sencha with this past order. I am anxious to see if they will send a sample.

Shinobi_cha

If they have the samples available, I’m sure they will include it!

Kristen

YIPPEE they send a sample of the orange sencha with my sakura sencha order!

Shinobi_cha

:-) Funny…when I ordered the sakura, I included 2oz of the orange sencha!

Cold Brew Backlog!

I’m almost out of this, but I have more on the way, YAY! I’m finding I really enjoy flavored senchas cold brewed, and nothing could be quicker or easier! I will be doing this a lot this spring and summer, I think.

Sil

i keep meaning to order this one heh…

Stephanie

They have a flavored tasting pack right now, Sil with 1oz of each of this, apple, grape, and sakura! In stock until the sakura sells out :)

Sil

yeah..i saw that. pretty tempting but i’m also REALLY trying to be good…so maybe i can hold out until next year hahahaha

Stephanie

I understand completely!

Fjellrev

Funny, I was JUST thinking about Den’s last night, and how I haven’t ordered from the in two years. This definitely sounds like it would make an excellent cold brew!

Stephanie

Now is a great time to remember about Den’s because it is Sakura Sencha time! Limited edition seasonal :)

Wow, this is good. Like, really good. Perfect combo of sweet grassy Sencha and really sweet pineapple. The pineapple isn’t overwhelming but definitely complements the Sencha beautifully. It’s like the sweetness of the Sencha flows right into the sweeter pineapple. I also got a free sample of their Orange Sencha with my order, so I’m curious to see how that compares.

So far I’m really loving Den’s Teas!

TeaEqualsBliss

One of these days I would love to try Den’s Teas! :P

Cofftea

Yeah they can be quite addicting:) This is on my shopping list!:)

fcmonroe

I’ve got some of this unopened. Next time I use up a tea, maybe I should break into this one!

Jillian

I went ahead and got their $3 Starter Set – apparently they’ll even refund the amount with your first purchase of $15 or more.

Cofftea

Jillian, you can get that w/ no other items in your order?

Jillian

I did, and they didn’t seem to have a problem with that. *shrugs *

Cofftea

…facepalm… Oh well, I probably would have gone w/ Den’s for my matcha set anyway.

I love the buttery pineapple fragrance and flavor of this tea. I usually do very little resteeping, but these flavored Senchas from Den’s Tea just beg for a good resteep. Also, since they call for very fast steeps (30 seconds to 45 seconds) they last really well over time. Lately I’ve taken to drinking one of these all afternoon with many resteeps.

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 0 min, 45 sec
Cofftea

That’s why I love my apple- it lasts forever, but just when I’m getting sick of the apple it disappears and leaves me w/ just a wonderful, slightly sweet sencha.

Sometimes you come across a tea so wonderful you have no idea how your life went on without it. One of those teas that makes you grin ear to ear, it’s just perfect! For me (and judging from the reviews, for many others as well!) this is one of those teas.

I bought this kind of on a whim, I was ordering the Sakura Sencha and noticed this sitting right next to it. So I looked up reviews, and there were so many 90+ I just had to get some. But I didn’t know it would be THIS good. Because man oh man, this tea is heaven. Fruit heaven.

The pineapple is so unbelievably authentic, up there in my mind with Butiki’s fantastic fruit flavoring. It’s tart, tropical and so smooth and fresh, like someone mixed pineapple juice in with my sencha. I mean, I almost don’t believe this is flavored! Obviously someone snuck chunks of fresh pineapple in when I wasn’t looking!

And, since this is Den’s we are talking about, the base is fantastic. It’s denser than some senchas I’ve tried, with a real creamy and butter feel. And a hint of caramel comes out when combined with the pineapple! It’s both light and heavy, if that makes any sense. Creamy and rich, but without a dense feeling to it.

And while I usually only drink fruit teas iced, this is fantastic hot! Thankfully it’s not one of their seasonal blends so I can keep this gem stocked all year long.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 30 sec

All of their fruit sencha is amazing! I have the grape. It is super yum too!

Alphakitty

I really need to try the grape and apple, the only other one I haven’t tasted is the rose sencha which thankfully I got as a sample in my order!

Thank you Alpahkitty for this sample! Juicy Pineapple and some excellent Sencha! What’s not to love?
Den’s tea offers some of my favorite Sencha and their flavored sencha have all been delightful!

Stephanie

I agree about Den’s senchas, they’re the best I’ve found so far…I’ve never tried this one but I’m DEFINITELY ordering it next time because I love their sencha and I love pineapple! :D

Had a couple steeps of this earlier this evening.

I find that the (to me) very short suggested steeping time really does make a difference. It’s still good if steeped longer, but it tastes so fresh and crisp with that brief steep. This has become one of my favourites.

Ahhhhhhhhh! PURE Fresh, Pineapple! Perfect scent of Pineapple
If you like Pineapple…check this out!

Before, During, and After it’s all about the freshly cut Pineapple Smell…once you infuse add the fresh Pineapple smell to a Green Tea and there you go! It has a typical Sencha type color and the taste is refreshing and creamy, yes, creamy! I was shocked it was creamy…I mean it says it’s creamy but I didn’t believe it for myself until I tried it. AND it’s still all about the Pineapple! YUMMY Juiciness! The Green Tea Taste is still true as well!

This is a darling of a flavored green sencha tea!

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

I prefer canned pineapple to eat, but I think I like fresh pineapple flavor in tea better. It just seems… GREENER:) I like their flavored sencha’s 4.5tsp of leaf in 6oz of 160 degree for a min and a half. Kinda punches you in the face:)

TeaEqualsBliss

It’s funny because today (specifically) I have used the terms SMACKS ME IN THE FACE and HITS YOU and you just said PUNCHES YOU IN THE FACE…hum…

I guess I don’t mind being abused by my tea! LOL It’s sooooo worth it! :P

SoccerMom

Sounds yummy. Cofftea: We are opposites I love fresh Pineapple don’t like canned!! :)

Earlier I had a second cup.

Cofftea

I need another $6 to make an even $30 for upcoming Den’s order… I’m considering throwing of this in to put me over the top. I’m not sure yet…

silvermage2000

If you really like pineapple you should consider it.

Carolyn

You really should consider doing just that, Cofftea. I think the pineapple sencha is the best of Den’s flavored senchas.

Cofftea

@Carolyn, I dunno if it can beat their apple!=D (That’s the only one I’ve tried) I’m considering rose too, but rose teas are pretty common so I think I’ll go w/ something more unique.

Ricky

I’m with you Cofftea. I want to try all their flavored Sencha, but I’m also hesitant. I mean their apple was pretty good, but it was like drinking a tea version of apple juice.

Cofftea

Ricky, I’m not sure you understood… or maybe I don’t understand you lol. I LOVE their apple sencha!

Ricky

Sorry, I was being confusing. I agree with you that their rose Sencha will probably taste pretty common like other rose tea varieties. I’m tempted to try their Pineapple next as it’s a bit more unique. I liked their Apple Sencha, but I’m afraid pineapple is going to be like Apple Sencha ( tea that tastes like apple juice).

Cofftea

Oh ok, gotcha. Except I don’t have the “but I’m afraid” feeling since I was so impressed w/ the apple. But I will be disappointed if it turns out to be a tea that tastes like apple juice since it’s pineapple hehe. So there ya go, we should get identical orders then. I’m gonna try the Matcha Miyabi that Carolyn swears by. But then there’s also the orange that has me curious after drinking 52teas mandarin matcha. Oh my gosh… I just thought of a wonderful idea! A screwdriver using orange sencha instead of orange juice! I like green olives in mine. Oh gosh… now which one do I choose???

I prefer brewing this like TG’s Green Coconut. I steep it at 180F for 2 minutes. I taste more pineapple. I have blew through my 2 oz bag QUICK! This is some good tea! :)

Shinobi_cha

Be sure to try their other flavored senchas. At least, every one of them was surprisingly much better than I expected. Besides pineapple, my other favorite is his (fuji) apple sencha. If you ever order, you can simply request a sample of something you’d like to try at the comments section at the end of the order process. I’ve found they don’t mind those requests at all (so I’ve been able to try all of them and decide which I’ve wanted to get full 2oz of)!

Mel

Thank you for the recommendation! I absolutely love their teas, and that’s awesome they do that. I know I’ll be ordering from them soon, I am going through their tea quick.
