The bottoms of the tins of my Naivetea Passion Fruit and Lychee oolongs are getting distressingly close, so I am on the hunt for replacements. I discovered this tea company offers both passion fruit and lychee, so I ordered samples of both. I like that this company appears to get their teas direct from Taiwan, which is how Naivetea used to do it.
The aroma on this is super promising. Lots and lots of juicy passion fruit. The single-serve sample was perhaps a bit more leaf than I would usually use, so I dropped the steep time a bit, and it came out well. Any extra-vegetalness I am attributing to too much leaf, but even so there isn’t much. This may be the tea I am looking for: lots of passion fruit, lots of floral green oolong. It seems perhaps a bit less naturally sweet than the Naivetea, but that may be down to over-leafing. This is probably enough to get me to order a larger amount and then do a side-by-side with the Naivetea. Promising!
