Prepare to receive the royal pineapple treatment. The mainland melts away as the warmth of pineapple sunshine filtersthrough a canopy of fragrant orange blossoms. You’re on island time now.

We’ve been drinking mostly herbals this weekend so I thought I would start the morning off with one of my husband’s favorites. I’m still not sold on this one, at least not by itself, but it’s not bad. It tastes more like pineapple candy than true pineapple, unfortunately. I would love to find a tea that tastes like an actual piece of juicy pineapple. It’s warm though and serves its purpose this bright Sunday morning.
Flavors: Candy, Pineapple
I can’t decide what I think of this tea. It does taste quite strongly of pineapple, so there is that. It’s quite sweet, almost too much so at the beginning of a sip, but then that almost citrusy tartness that pineapple has shows up, and balances out the sweetness. There’s some other flavor alongside the pineapple that I can’t quite identify and am not sure I like. I’ll have to drink more of this before I come to a final decision about it.
Flavors: Citrusy, Pineapple, Sweet
Fruity and sweet… And more fruity and sweet… And… Not much flavor! I smelled a tiny bit of pineapple but as hard as I tried I could taste it. Unfortunate considering that it was a super rainy night and the hot pineapple seemed like such a good idea at the time.
I used to have this tea iced, and it was tasty, but I can’t really remember if the flavor was any stronger this way. Either way, it isn’t bad, just not something to get your hopes up about!
On a positive note, it is another tea that my husband has sipped on and enjoyed. So it seemed mild flavors and fruity are the way to go for him to like a tea! I hope that I will be able to get him as hooked to tea as I am!
Happy Sipdown (151/158)!
I wanted to give this a fair shot despite finding it so revolting in every way I’ve tried it thus far. And, I have to admit, I was hoping that maybe being sick and not tasting very well would make it more passable. Not the case.
I have figured out exactly what it reminds me of though! It’s great being able to put a description to the disgusting flavour you’re experiencing, right? Well this one is “musty old attic and rotten fruit”. Sip on that? No thanks.
Happy to be done with this one. We’re not friends.
This was a present from my best friend. She ended up with more of this tea than she wanted, and gave me some to try (and to reduce what she had in her cupboard). I’ve had this mixed with Wile Orange Blossom before and really liked it, though I get the feeling that the orange overpowered this tea in that blend.
THIS is pineapple — sweet, juicy, citrusy pineapple. I love it. This is what I was hoping Pineapple Oolong would be. And it smells like a tropical island, which is kinda perfect for a sunshiney Friday.
EDIT: The resteep of this has no flavor. Bummer. I guess that’s to be expected with a mostly-fruit blend.
