drank Passionfruit Oolong by Naivetea
1962 tasting notes

I am so thrilled to finally have this tea back in my cupboard. It’s been a while since I first got a sample of this, and I’ve finally gotten comfortable enough with the size of my tea cupboard to buy a tin of it (and the Lychee Oolong).

It really is an astounding tea. I’ve never had a tea that tasted so much like a fresh, ripe passion fruit before. Not passion fruit flavor, not passion fruit juice/nectar… actual passion fruit. SO GOOD. Naivetea is really outstanding. They were more popular a few years ago on Steepster but aren’t as well known recently, but if you like flavored green oolongs (or high mountain Taiwanese oolongs in general) I highly recommend you check them out.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
