Flowery Pineapple Oolong is a Wen Shan Bao Zhong oolong flavored with freeze dried pineapple. This tea comes from Butiki Teas.
This tea is delicious and one of my favorites. With Butiki Tea orders, you can request samples – and this was one of the first samples I got. I held onto my sample for awhile, waiting for the right time to try it. Then after I tried it.. YUM! So I ordered more. Samples FTW!
DRY LEAF: Chunky presentation here with the large lumps of oolong and bulky pineapple bits. Very nice!
STEEPED: As I poured the tea from my gravity steeper, the room filled with smells of floral and pineapple! Oooh, take me away! Very pretty light golden coloured tea! I steeped this tea as per package instructions: 180F for 4 minutes.
TASTE: Very nice silky oolong flavor with a blast of pineapple. I’m talking natural pineapple, not the canned or sugared sweet stuff. The oolong here has a gentle floral note, and a bit of butteryness. With rock sugar, the pineapple spikes out into more deliciousness! This tea has so much pineapple flavor, I totally burped out pineapple taste after this first cup!
RESTEEP: The oolong is a touch lighter – still silky, floral and buttery in flavor. The after taste is that wonderful pineapple again. Admittedly, this is the first time I’ve had this tea resteeped, I’ve always ate all the pineapple, thus killing my resteep!
Resteep done? Time to eat the pineapple! Munchmunch
COMMENTS: This tea sounds simple yet effective, however, is more complex than that. The pineapple flavor is really natural and full of luscious flavor – all balanced with the delicate oolong.
Very tasty! I bet Flowery Pineapple Oolong would be great iced, but I enjoy savoring this tea hot – lasts longer! I love pineapple teas, but I’ve set this one as the best I’ve had!
