drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
254 tasting notes

This is the second of the three free samples that came with my first DAVIDsTEA order, and I’m using it to try to get the taste of the last one (the Salted Caramel) out of my mouth!

Dry, this smells exactly like pineapple jelly beans, and the steeped flavor isn’t much different! The liquor is golden and tastes juicy; pineapple still dominates but the apricot is a little more noticeable while the oolong is a hint at best.

This reminds me of their Citron Oolong, which was dominated by the citrus flavors. That was the Energizer Bunny of flavored teas and was still going strong into the fourth steep. Because of that, I’m curious how this one will re-steep.

Update: The second steep is much better – it tastes less artificial and the oolong makes a more prominent appearance. I’ll take this flavor over the last sample any day!

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.


Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
