2 Tasting Notes
So good! I know it’s all super mainstream, but I reach for this daily. Ok multiple times daily. There’s no such thing as say, hibiscus poisoning, right? I hope not.
I feel like I may be addicted to this tea (not really, addicitons are bad :p) – It’s just perfect. I love the slight tartness although I will say I do add sweetener (two packets of stevia or a little honey) and prefer it hot. I tried it today at Starbucks iced, unsweetened, with lemonade – yummy and satisfying on an 80 degree plus day, but I still prefer it hot. Perfect for cuddling up with a Jane Austen book. The color is very fitting and beautiful as well!
The way I prepare it at home is with boiling hot water and two to three satchels. That may sound crazy, but I like my tea strong-ish and can’t stand anything watery. For reference: one satchel is acceptable for a Starbucks Tall, but I don’t think two would hurt, I’d definitely need two or maybe three for a Grande.
I do think there is a definite taste difference between the full leaf version and the regular tea bags. I used to drink the regular version everyday in college until I got tired of it, the tartness of the regular bags is different and more pronounced in my opinion. I’d never go back to that version. If you’re going to buy Passion for your home cupboard I highly suggest you make sure you get the full leaf which will be in tin rather than the regular bags that come in a box.
I sign off as I savor my third cup of the day, very slowly since I used my last three satchels for this large cuppa… Gotta go get some more tomorrow :p
