drank Passion by Tazo
7 tasting notes

I’m participating in a sleep deprivation study (oy! It is now 6 in the morning, and I’ve been awake for two hours against my will =D), and as we’re not allowed to have any caffeine my lovely friend bought us some herbal tea to get us through the morning. I have to say, so far I am not a fan of Passion. I’m a little surprised since the ingredients are so lovely, and it is such a beautiful tea, but it’s a bit like drinking straight lemon juice—unbelievably sour and puckery. However, reading these notes makes me start to think that this is more my fault than the tea’s. As others have said, it’s strong, strong stuff—it turns the water purple in just a moment or two and packs a real flavor wallop. I get into the habit of leaving the bag in while I drink herbals because usually herbal for me means mint—and you just can’t overbrew mint. This, clearly, you can overbrew. In addition, honey would mellow this out a great deal. As I don’t have access to honey, I’m going to go brew another cup with some sugar and a shorter steeping time, and we’ll see if this gets a revised review =)
