drank Passionate Rose by Tea Palace
1975 tasting notes

Hmm, something is up with this one today. For some reason it tastes kind of metallic, which seems more like it’s a problem with the water or something than with the tea itself. I hope so, because I love this tea… passion fruit and rose together, yum! The way these go well together made me think of combining passion fruit and lychee, since lychee has those rose notes as well as some citrusy-type notes. I just ordered some passion fruit tea from thepuritea (yay cyber monday sales… through some weird math I ended up saving 55% on my order), so I will probably try that with Harney’s lychee when it gets here!

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.
89-86: 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
85-80: 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.
