drank Pink Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA
678 tasting notes

I saw hibiscus in the ingredient list, but went ahead and picked up 10g of this anyway, just to try.

I’m happy to say the tea does not steep a deep pink-red colour that normally happens with hibiscus and it smells very passionfruit-y. The scent is reminding me of something fond I had when I was little, but I can’t quite put my finger on what that is.

Initial sips are all passionfruit. Yum! And YAY, no hibiscus overwhelming flavour! There is a very subtle tartness that I’m enjoying. Overall, this tea is really well done.

I can imagine this would be good cold too, but usually even when teas are good cold, I still prefer them hot haha.

Update: The second steep of this has slightly less flavour, but still lovely.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
