The best part of this tea, for me, is the dry smell. I’m not a huge fan of the taste but still it’s good. The type of black tea they use blends perfectly with the other ingredients. Still not quite sure of what to think about the sprinkles in there. I think perhaps that the tea would have been better off without them. This is is surprisingly good hot and cold.

Aloha from Hawai’i. Found this tea at a spice shop. Kinda pricey but didnt know if I’d see it again so I figured lets just get it. As far as passion fruit flavor goes, I don’t detect any. The french vanilla is definiatly there though. And as usual the rooibos is the dominant flavor.

Flavors: Vanilla

This is my first time drinking a congou. It’s very smooth. So far the only problem I have with this tea is that I think more of roses then I do of lychee. If you were to remove the lychee flavor I think the tea itself would be good on it’s own.

When you’re pregnant and need something to drink, you get something to drink. However, this isn’t quite what I thought it was going to be. Passion fruit can be strong but I can’t even taste it. The stevia is way too strong.

A very unique Rooibos. Generally I find that the rooibos takes over all of the other flavors, like a nice bully, and leaves a little extra space for them to be tasted as well. It all blends together very nicely and yet I still find it to be… I’m not sure of what the right word/words for it should be. Smooth but… this is weird I seriously can’t come up with a way to describe it!

Regardless of my inability to describe it it is a good tea. Not worth a high rating to me because I don’t find it to be that great. (You know how some teas just make you go, “wow! this is amazing.” I don’t get that from this one.)

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
