Pineapple sencha

So from my recent den's tea purchase, a complimentary sample of their pineapple sencha was included. I must say, it is quite the flavor explosion. Anyone else try this one?

I don't think I have ever had any pineapple flavored tea. Is it very summer-ish? Does the pineapple over power the sencha?

I've never tried flavored sencha, but since I enjoy flavored teas so much I would be interested in trying this, is it very sweet?

It is very pineapply like there's no mistaking it's in there it does seem to overpower the sencha a bit but not so much that it becomes disharmonious. It's definitely a very refreshing summer tea and I think it would be great iced.

I tried it. Actually, I thought it was awful. I'm not really a flavored tea fan, but I thought it was pretty bad even compared to other flavored tea. The rest of Den's offerings were great though, even the tea bags.

I'm not very big into flavored teas. I always find the fruit flavor overpowers the natural tea flavors but it does sound like it would be delicious iced. I didn't even think about that.
