Oh wow, this is awesome!
I love the way this Oolong is flavored. The pineapple is very obvious and very there, but, it is not an overwhelming flavor. The flavor of the green Oolong comes through loud and clear, and the pineapple accompanies it. It is a perfect harmony of flavors.
The green Oolong has a very fresh flavor to it, complete with hints of vegetation. It also has a light nutty, creamy kind of taste in the background that works very well with the pineapple flavor. It tastes coconut-y! I don’t know if that is a result of the flavoring (which is listed as “tropical flavoring” on the website), or if it is an effect delivered by the Oolong itself. Either way, it’s quite delightful.
The pineapple tastes sweet and also a little tangy. The overall flavor here is definitely tropical. The mouthfeel of the tea is soft and smooth, and the aftertaste is sweet and pineapple-y … and very YUMMY!
This might just be my favorite that I’ve tasted from Tea Licious. And the second and third infusions are even more flavorful. This is definitely a winner!
