I went ahead and boiled my water, measured it out (which is waay too tart for my taste so I ended up adding more water then called for, probably an extra 50 mls or so). The first sip: An explosion! No, several explosions in my mouth. My senses were assaulted but I liked it!! It felt, uh tasted, sooo good. Ok slow down..wow that was just..wow! let’s see, awesome but I’m missing something..sweet! Yes let’s make it a lil bit more sweet. So I did. And BLISS!! Sheer passionate bliss!
To sum it up, this stuff is great. Orgasmic. Ok, maybe not orgasmic but damn it gave me pleasure to drink this! I cannot wait to try it iced, it seems like the kind of tea that BEGS to be tried iced. But the hot, passiony goodness was amazing. A stand-out tea memory etched in my mind forever! But you need to add a little sweet. I put in boring old sugar but next will try making my own “classic syrup” which is simply 2 parts sugar 1 part water heated for a short time. Hot or iced, this does well with a bit of sweetness to compliment the tart.
Passion, you have turned me on! I never thought I could love you but in spite of myself I do! So glad Tazo threw this in. I will buy it especially in the summer because I just KNOW this will be amazing iced. But all the same, I will update when I do and let you know how it is. Now, go drink some of this you can thank me later.
