Such a beautiful tea to watch steep! All of the petals and pieces of fruit. The aroma is quite strong of pineapple and passion fruit, I could inhale this all day. Unfortunately, I’m not getting much of that flavor in the taste. Just a very slight hint of passionfruit on the back end of the swallow. I’m not even getting much green tea flavor. Maybe this needs a longer steeping time or cooler brewing temp. The packaging recommended 3 minutes at 185F, a bit hotter than I normally brew greens.
Ahhh…I found a bit more flavor. If I slurp the tea as it is cooling the pineapple comes through and a sweet fruit flavor that might be the papaya is also present. Okay, this is a little better now!
