i was a bit sceptical about this flavour at first. but its really really nice. Its got a nice fresh pineapple taste instead of a too sweet fake pineapple taste. its really good.

A delicious tea with a flavour easily compared to that of a famous Taiwanese desert. The intense sweetness of pineapple is fused with an Oolong base. Ideal at the end of a meal, or as an afternoon treat.

Another from my LA tea spree!
Love LOVE this! So good! Smells more of coconut when dry, but definitely tastes like pineapple when steeped! I had some hot, very mellow flavor, warm pineapple scent. Cold is fantastic! Light, refreshing, and just the right amount of sweetness that you can drink it all day, like I have been. Makes my summer days happy, even when I was at work.
Does not do well with oversteeping (oops). But the following infusions (three so far) have been great.
I should preface this by saying that pineapple’s not among my favorite fruit flavors. The dry leaf of this tea smells strongly of coconut, but once brewed the coconut is mostly absent (from both the scent and the flavor) – it’s not totally gone, but it’s very, very faint, and the pineapple definitely dominates. Which is too bad, because I’m fonder of coconut than I am of pineapple.
I will say that the flavoring here isn’t terribly strong, and the oolong base comes through nicely. I like this one okay, and I can definitely see pineapple fans really loving it.
I got this in my New Year’s Happy bag. Which was a really awesome deal. Now I have to work my way through trying the different teas. So this one I am having after lunch since I was craving something sweet. So I was good and steeped this instead of having a cookie. Dry it smells like sweetened pineapple and coconut. Steeped it is delicious. Very buttery creamy flavor with just a hint of pineapple. I really like that you can taste the oolong more than the flavoring. Liking this one a lot. Yummy!
This tea is awesome. I love pineapple and coconut mixed together. The aroma when you open the bag is just heavenly. Pineapple tidbits waft to your nose accompanied with a gentle oolong. And the taste… yea. Perfect amount of pineapple and coconut so as not to over power the oolong. I’m loving the oolong base they used. Grassy with a vegetal hint.
Flavors: Coconut, Pineapple
Since when do I wake up craving pineapple? Never, really.
Alas, today I did and this was so satisfying to drink. It’s a rather old pack of tea in my cupboard and the pineapple flavouring has since diminished a little since its opening.
But because the oolong base is pretty solid, and it’s very pineapple-y to begin with, it still made for a delicious cup. It also got rid of that strong buttery note that I wasn’t so fond of when I first tried this tea.
Reminds me of those sweet pineapple Chinese buns with the crusty sugar topping that you buy in Guangzhou for twenty-five cents. Ah, good times.
Another one from my order!
So this one is not what I expected. I expected it to be more like Ripe Mango Oolong which is juicy, sweet, and perfume-y. But…This one is so different.
It smells strongly of Pineapple and butter.
It tastes strongly of butter and cream. Hints of floral and pineapple there too, but not too apparent, sadly.
I mean, it’s not horrible. And I’m like 98% sure that this one is totally gonna grow on me. But I’m not a huge fan of butter flavors in tea, and since I wasn’t expecting it, it kinda disappoints me. But It’s not horrible.
It’s a good tea. And I’m sure it’s gonna grow on me. Just wait…in a few weeks I will write another review saying, “THIS IS AMAZING. BEST PINEAPPLE TEA OF ALL TIMEEEE!!!”. Yeah..just you wait. :P
Flavors: Butter, Cream, Floral, Pineapple
This is a sample from Cameron B! Thank you!
I had this as my afternoon tea today. Holy yum! This is was good. The flavor blended so well with the flavor of the tea. It really surprised me. Everything that I have had that has claimed pineapple, the pineapple has screamed “HEY ITS ME PINEAPPLE”. This was vegetal, sweet, coconut, with hints that made you realize you were drinking pineapple. The bad thing about drinking a lot of samples, it makes you want to buy EVERYTHING.
On a somewhat related note: Is it possible to still buy the Lupicia Honeydew Melon online?
