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!
