78 Tasting Notes
Put not one but TWO bags in my travel mug and let them steep forever. Can you tell I’m determined to like this tea? This time the Pomegranate was more apparent, but still not super flavorful like I envisioned.
I still think this would go good with agave, or honey. I just don’t have any at work to try it with.
When this came in the mail I was SO EXCITED. This is the first tea I got purely from all the great reviews people on steepster were giving. A cinnamon roll tea that tastes exactly like its name? TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! After having two cups of this so far, (one with a 1/2tsp of sugar, the other with the same amount of sugar + milk) I still have to say that it is too good to be true. Maybe I had my expectations set too high?
First impression is it smells strongly of cinnamon, like others say. After brewing it, I still had the strong cinnamon smell but it wasn’t quite as prominent when taking a sip. It did not taste like cinnamon roll though. A shame, because I WANTED IT TO. I’m not giving up either, I’m convinced this must be user error if everyone else is having such success and I am not. That or everyone else is having VERY different cinnamon rolls than me.
Despite it not tasting like it’s name in my opinion, I still enjoyed this tea. It made for a very nice cup of late night tea before bed. I expect (and hope) my rating will change as I experiment more with how to brew it.
Why yes, I did brew this twice in one day. This time I put one bag in my 16oz travel mug and just left it in there forever (it’s still in there now, 30 minutes later). Don’t know if this really made a difference in the taste though. I guess this just isn’t a very flavorful tea. The pomegranate still isn’t super prominent like I thought it would be, unfortunately. I still like it though! I’ll finish this box gladly!
Wonder what would happen if I added some agave to it…
Not super flavorful. Maybe next time I should steep it longer. It has a hint of pomegranate in it. I like it overall though! Starberry sent me some of this to try, but I caved and got some before it came in the mail.
In any case, it looks like I have a tea to drink at work that I don’t detest (finally).
~1 tsp Youthberry, ~1/2 tsp Superfruit Unity
My friend requested the Youthberry while waiting for my sister to get ready (we were going to the renaissance festival). I decided to put a little superfruit in as well, because I love this combo. I added some agave nectar which made the fruit flavors really sweet as well. Great cup of tea to start out the day with!
LOVE THIS TEA! I drink it on it’s own, as well as mixed all the time. I’ve had it plain, with sugar, honey, agave nectar, hot, iced. No matter how I brew it I still love it. Just a really great, versatile tea in my opinion.

~1tsp for 8oz cup
I had this for breakfast at my friends house (wow does she have a nice tea selection!). She didn’t have a lot of it left so I didn’t put too much in the tea leaf ball. Can’t say I was super impressed with this tea, especially considering the name of it. I was expecting a lot of different fruit flavors, but I ended up not getting much of anything at all. Which was disappointing. IT HELD SUCH PROMISE!
I added 2 tsp to make a 16oz cup with a bit of agave nectar, and MAN WAS IT GOOD. I inhaled it!
It was fruity, and delicious. This was my first time using agave nectar and I feel like it really brought out the flavor. I’ll write more on the actual flavors of it next time I make a cup — which will be soon.
Oh goodness, to describe Tazo’s Passion tea as briefly as I could I would use the words: strong, tart, with a hint of sour.
I don’t know how all these people steep theirs as long as they do. Personally, steeping it for just a minute gives me all the flavor I could ever want and then some. This tea is PACKED with flavor, which is nice because I can get more than one cup out of a bag.
Is this what hibiscus tastes like? If so, I think I like it. I’m new to the tea world, so it’s hard for me to pick out ingredients. I like what I like, that’s about it.
Great iced and hot (with or without sweetener)!
THIS IS A GREAT TEA FOR NON-TEA DRINKERS TO HAVE. My sister hates tea, but she loves sweet, fruity things, and loves this stuff. She’ll actually make it on her own without me prompting her! WOW!
