I am getting the vanilla and there is a hint of fruitiness at the end of the sip but nothing distinctively passion fruit flavored. There is also a strong woody rooibos flavor. It’s okay but rather disappointing in light of all that’s promised.

It tastes like a vanilla rooibos with perhaps a hint of fruit, but perhaps I’m just willing it to be there. This tea is about as dark as a black tea, but the rooibos is the most obvious flavor. I wouldn’t buy this, but for a rooibos, it’s drinkable. This was also in Skysamurai’s TTB.

From the Cooking TTB.

The combination of passion fruit and vanilla sounded really intriguing, so I pulled this out of the box. Opening the individually wrapped tea bag, the only smell I could detect was the woody note of red rooibos.

Steeped, there’s a very faint fruity note on the nose, but mostly rooibos. There’s maybe a trace of vanilla flavour, but not enough that I could name it if I wasn’t looking for it.

This doesn’t taste bad at all. If it was supposed to be a straight rooibos I’d be happy with what it is. But it doesn’t deliver at all on the promised flavours.

Aloha from Hawai’i. Found this tea at a spice shop. Kinda pricey but didnt know if I’d see it again so I figured lets just get it. As far as passion fruit flavor goes, I don’t detect any. The french vanilla is definiatly there though. And as usual the rooibos is the dominant flavor.
