From Tea Licious

With their exotic, golden flavor & dramatic spiky crown, pineapples are clearly the king of the fruit world. Their original name was “Ananas,” from the Tupi word for “excellent fruit”. Here we blend big pieces of pineapple with Tie Kwan Yin green oolong tea, for the perfect balance of fresh, fruity and floral. The result? A bright, refreshing blend that’s equally amazing hot or iced. Green oolong, marigold, safflowers and tropical flavoring.

First things first, I think this tea is either a replacement or renaming of the pineapple oolong from the same company. I created a new tea to reflect what I ordered off their site: www.tealicousllc.com
This tea looked to have a lot of potential for me. I love my oolongs on the greener side, and this was one of the few samples I bought from Tea Licous that was not on their formosa base.
Unfortunately, this tea is artificial-tasting while hot. It smells quite nice and tropical, but the flavor has that chewable vitamin-c tab/flinstone vitamin flavor of ‘fruit’ smoothies that have no actual fruit in them. Sugar helps a little, but just masks the bad a bit.
On the other hand, this is tasty business when cold-brewed! I brewed about 1.5-2 tsp in 24 oz for 10 hours last night and it came out sweet, lightly floral, and definitely tropical. The flavoring was toned down quite a bit in favor of the florals, and that helped a lot. It was very yummy and I drank it up quicker that I usually do (I couldn’t keep away from it at breakfast time, so refreshing!).
Another quite cheap option that I may consider just for the cold brewing shelf!
