Our Pineapple Cilantro Cream pairs our high quality Organic Bai Mu Dan with a delicate pineapple flavor and rich creaminess that finishes with fresh cilantro notes. This full bodied tea is gentle and refreshing and has an intoxicatingly sweet pineapple aroma. We recommend drinking this tea at a warmer temperature to maximize the flavors. This tea was originally intended as an art project inspired by an abstract painting but after hearing positive feedback from a customer who had tried this blend, we decided to make it available on our website.

OK, yeah, you got me. I ordered this one out of sheer curiosity. Pineapple … Cilantro? Cream??? That sounds just too weird for me to NOT try.
And I’m loving this Pineapple Cilantro Cream White Tea Blend from Butiki Teas. Yes, it’s unusual, quite unlike any tea that I’ve ever tried! But, that may just be what I like best about it – it is so different, and yet, so tasty! This combination of flavors really works well.
The first thing I notice about this tea – besides the unique taste! – is that the flavors are remarkably well-balanced. It doesn’t taste like Pineapple with a hint of cilantro and a creamy backdrop, or like a heavily cilantro’d white tea with notes of pineapple and cream.
I taste the three components of pineapple, cilantro and cream pretty equally. The white tea is a nice base for this because it tastes light and crisp, and really contributes to the overall *fresh taste* of this tea. The pineapple adds a sweet, juicy note. The cilantro is enhanced by the freshness of the white tea and it offers just a hint of herbaceous warmth to the cup. The cream softens the cup, sweetens it – and melds beautifully with the natural creamy tones of the Bai Mu Dan. It is a well-rounded, exotic tasting experience for the palate!
And this gets even better as it cools – making it a delightfully different iced tea treat! What a clever blend from Butiki Teas!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
