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!
Here’s Hoping TTB.
So, I definitely thought this was a tasty oolong, but I didn’t taste pineapple at all. In fact my experience of this tea seems to be wildly different than the flavors other people have noted. I got a nice roasty mineral flavor which none of the seventy other reviewers have noted. I may buy some and see if it has a different flavor when fresh or if it got some flavor contamination. If not, I’ll still have a pleasant oolong to drink.
Well! Happily I found a third tea that I really like from Lupicia. Not great for my wallet because undoubtably by the time summer comes around I will have to order more…but I can kinda get away with rationalize restocking to my Mom, plus a few new tries. But it will depend on how many other teas that I like.
Though this tea has pineapple in it, I don’t get much of a ‘tropical feel’ from this tea that others have mentioned. Which is fine…I got more then enough tropical teas.
There was the buttery element that others mentioned…generally speaking, buttery is not a quality that I care for, in combination with the pineapple, it made for a very appealing taste.
This is the tea I’ve wanted to try right from the get go…so I am extremely pleased that I liked it as much as I hoped.
Thanks to CheshireEyes for the thoughtful sample! This has been on my wishlist for a while and I’m super glad to have tried it. This has a lovely sweet pineapple flavor that comes just short of being cloying or tasting candy-like. It’s also nice as an iced tea. By which I mean brewed hot and then cooled, since I never had the patience to cold brew this. Sipdown!
Steepster keeps eating my tasting note… not in a good way.
This one I ‘ll have to try again. I brewed 3 steeps to take to work with me (in separate thermoses) and for some reason was convinced that I was drinking mango oolong all day. Not even like Lupicia’s Ripe Mango oolong, but it tasted like the mango hichew candies. Yeah… I don’t know. I had more notes but I’m too tired to think of and retype them at the moment.
