I don’t understand this tea. Maracuja is passionfruit, and this tastes like peach.
I mean maybe there’s a little itsy bit of passionfruit in there, but for the most part this is peachy. And no, passionfruit doesn’t taste like peaches, it’s like a pineapple and a guava had a baby that rolled around in citrus juices.
So, considering this now as a peach-passionfruit tea, it’s pretty delicious. I bought a sample and I’m glad Azzrian sent me a bit more because I will gladly drink it up.
I steeped it for 3 minutes after the fiasco that was the summer tea blend from Upton, which said 4 minutes. Even at 3 min, the black tea is showing a good bit of astringency.
I think this has to be far better iced than hot, and I am drinking it iced. It’s so fruity that I think the black tea would be entirely lost underneath the flavors hot.
A sample plus what Azzrian sent will be enough for me! It’s good but not something I’ll feel the need to keep around.
