Argh, steeped it too long and got it bitter. Loved the pineapple scent. This may be the pineapple flavored tea of my dreams, if I don’t mess it up. Waiting to rate until I can do it justice.


My daughter and I love this one! Hope it steeps better for you next time!


Oh, I feel sure it will. This was definitely a case of operator error — I got distracted reading about it and lost track of the time, LOL!

Can we say “tropical fruit explosion?” It’s really good! (If you love pineapple, that is!) I do. It smells tropical from the moment the packet is opened. It retains it’s scent even after steeping. 165/1 min – I hate getting vegetal greens with fruity flavors, so I really dropped the temp and steep times. I love this tea! It will make a wonderful summer iced tea. The green is nice and slightly grassy, the fruit flavors are blended splendidly. I’m very satisfied with it! (Phew, one less sample bag in the stash…)

Sigh. Adding it to my next order, which just keeps getting bigger and bigger…


They have so much to choose from. Orders there so easily grow to astronomical sizes.

A sample from Courtney. This is the second tropical green I’ve tried, and my second Harney and Sons. There’s a poetry to all this somewhere, isn’t there? Dry, it smells amazing. It’s a pretty generic “tropical” scent, and it reminds me of Five Alive or something like that, but it’s mouthwatering all the same. I’m assuming from looking at the leaves that this is sencha. They’re folded, but quite broad and flat, and a fairly dark green. I’ve had some good experiences with sencha, so I’m looking forward to this!

Brewed, the liquor is a very pale yellow-green, and it smells delicately fruity. There’s a slight underlying grassy note from the green tea, and the overall effect is pleasant and encouraging. Not many flavoured greens I’ve tried have been anything but a deep yellow verging on brown, so this makes for a welcome change.

To taste, the tropical flavouring isn’t quite as strong as I’d hoped it would be. It’s there, but it’s pretty delicate. The green tea base is equally subtle, though, so I’ve no complaints on that front. I can taste tropical fruit in the initial sip, but it’s not a lingering taste, and soon gives way to the grassy sweetness of the sencha. It’s very smooth and not at all astringent, but I had hoped for a little more punch.

While not bad, as flavoured greens go, it lacks the depth of flavour to really make it in my estimation. Not bad by any means, though.

I might re-buy this tea for the sole purpose of cold-brewing it. I really REALLY REALLY REALLY love the scent of this tea. It’s a very powerful pineapple scent. I wish it translated better into the hot brewed tea, but I was satisfied enough with a cold brew. It’s not very tropical either, but I inexplicably would rather have this iced than hot.


ooh good to know.


I should mention that it wasn’t at all astringent after an 8-hour steep.

The jagged dark green leaves remind me of a Japanese Bancha or maybe even a Sencha. The aroma is predominently pineapple, though I detect either guava or passion fruit in the mix as well.

When brewed the liquor produced is a wonderful yellow hue. The aroma is more subdued than from it’s dry leaf counterpart, but still plenty aromatic with the scents literally discernable from another room.

The flavors are a veritable street fight between the vegetal green tea and the pineapple. It’s difficult to say which is most dominent here. The finish and tail are primarily of the vegetal style though.

This was a lovely light tea. The pineapple is the dominant flavour as stated. I very much enjoyed this and I’ll enjoy the remainder of my sample. I most likely won’t repurchase as it wasn’t overly amazing. I’m out of room in my tea cupboard and Bamboozled should do the trick for me :)

yum. A nicely flavored green. Not too strong-the pineapple dominates, but I swear I taste & smell guava. Nice. The green tea flavor is present and really nice. Slightly sweet, as well.

Usually steep this one for 3 minutes. Left it in a bit longer accidentally and it seems to get a bit bitter.

Very simple green tea. I swapped for this tea from loupea. Would be nice iced. Pineapple is slight. It was ok hot, but iced would probably suit this tea.

Wow, it tastes like dried pineapple! The flavors are noticeable but not overbearing. Good tea!
