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!
