All you smell when you open the bag is pure Intense pineapple-ness. Its a candied type of pineapple aroma, rather than fresh juicy pineapple, so perhaps best as an after dinner – dessert tea to wash down any rich food you’ve had.
There are no pineapple chunks in this tea though, its all green tea leaves in the bag, and most likely just pineapple flavouring. I can’t tell if its natural or artificial (no ingredient listing). I got this as a souvenir from a friend who visited Hawaii a couple of years ago.
Its interesting that the pineapple flavour has stayed fresh so long (the last time I drank this was a year ago). Or maybe its the green tea flavour weakening so it doesn’t mute the pineapple as much anymore…?
