2 Tasting Notes
Paradise makes great teas, period. My favorite is Black Currant but this one and the Passion Fruit variety are close seconds. This tea has an incredibly refreshing, light quality to it with a lot of flavor. Not sure if The Cheesecake Factory serves this tea or the Passion Fruit, but that’s a good place to taste it if you are curious.
Like “Rebootable,” we constantly have pitchers of this tea in our refrigerators at home and at work!
I LOVE this tea and have for years. It has a rich, full-bodied yet delicate taste with fruit overtones that I have yet to find in another tea. We first tasted Paradise tea years ago when on a trip to California and we asked the waitress what the tea was. We then stocked up because we couldn’t find it in stores locally (St. Louis area).
I found this particular blend at a local restaurant and it was only available in commercial-size loose leaf bags, so I started buying it in bulk online. Although the regular original and tropical blends are great tasting, this one is just so much more flavorful.
Now I find out that since Smucker’s bought Sara Lee (who had previously purchased Paradise Tea), they stopped making it a few months ago (spring 2012). If you love this tea, write them and protest the decision. I certainly have!
