drank Passion by Tazo
1112 tasting notes

I finally got around to trying one sachet of passion and one sachet of vanilla rooibos in 20 oz water plus a little honey – YUM! It somehow combines to taste almost like a lemon drop candy (!?!). I’m not sure how hibiscus + apple + vanilla = lemon drop but boy is it enjoyable! Even my husband said “Wow – what is this? It’s really GOOD!” Go figure!

That sounds surprisingly good…I’ve never much cared for Passion (the tea, and let’s just leave it at that :) but it sounds like the vanilla would tone it down nicely. A million points for creativity!

I mix it with homemade lemonade, which is what they do at Starbucks. Pretty good.

gmathis – I have to give the credit to O-Cha here on Steepster :) I read her tasting note where she did this and copied her! I also like it mixed with plain rooibos to tone it down. I like it as it is, but I have to be in the mood for it.

ashmanra – I have to try that! I bet it would be great with sparkling water too as an Italian soda-esque treat!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
