Mmmm, maybe I am biased but this is still so yummy! And so pretty to watch as it cold steeps in my glass of lemonade and ice! All that gorgeous magenta coloured liquor slip-sliding over ice to pool like bright red silk at the bottom of my glass, waiting to be stirred and consumed… Savoured while I click through the pages of the latest book that I have put on to my Kobo!

Oh did I mention there is a great sunset to watch too?

I brewed a tall dark pitcher of this in the fridge. Oh my criminy! Everyone at work drinks Passion. I like it so much better cold than hot! Nice on the porch on a hella hot day. No sweetener required, but it didn’t hurt!

when I worked at Starbucks we always had iced pitches of this on hand. It was actually pretty good mixed with…. something I can’t remember right now, damnit.

I’m glad you rated this tea. I still have a few bags of this left. I wasn’t too impressed with it hot. Maybe I’ll have to try it iced. Thanks!

Erin Hurley

It’s so pretty to watch too! I bet it’s good with lemonade!

Megs

I totally agree with you – it’s so much better iced. When I worked at Starbucks, we figured out that the Passion Tea Lemonade (easy to make at home), tastes pretty good with vodka as well ;-)

Maybe thaaat was it. Passion Tea Lemonade. That sounds right.

This is a classic for me and reminds me of summer time. Starbucks use to have Valencia syrup (orange) and I use to have a Passion ice tea with 1/2 classic and 1/2 Valencia and it was delicious. They have since discontinued the syrup. I continued to brew this at home and ice it. I don’t ever have it hot. Sometime about fruit herbals being hot doesn’t appeal to me.

I love this blend and regularly brew it up iced to up my water intake. I don’t sweeten it anymore because I find that it doesn’t need it. It’s a treat when I do get it from Starbucks and sweeten it, so I will leave it to Starbucks. I’ve also mixed this with some frozen berries and ice and served it in pretty punch cups and people have loved it, not knowing that it doesn’t have any added sugar in it. A good go to!

I enjoyed this tea a lot, but I prefer it iced. I like having teabags around for travel and such, and this fits the bill well!

So good! I know it’s all super mainstream, but I reach for this daily. Ok multiple times daily. There’s no such thing as say, hibiscus poisoning, right? I hope not.

I feel like I may be addicted to this tea (not really, addicitons are bad :p) – It’s just perfect. I love the slight tartness although I will say I do add sweetener (two packets of stevia or a little honey) and prefer it hot. I tried it today at Starbucks iced, unsweetened, with lemonade – yummy and satisfying on an 80 degree plus day, but I still prefer it hot. Perfect for cuddling up with a Jane Austen book. The color is very fitting and beautiful as well!

The way I prepare it at home is with boiling hot water and two to three satchels. That may sound crazy, but I like my tea strong-ish and can’t stand anything watery. For reference: one satchel is acceptable for a Starbucks Tall, but I don’t think two would hurt, I’d definitely need two or maybe three for a Grande.

I do think there is a definite taste difference between the full leaf version and the regular tea bags. I used to drink the regular version everyday in college until I got tired of it, the tartness of the regular bags is different and more pronounced in my opinion. I’d never go back to that version. If you’re going to buy Passion for your home cupboard I highly suggest you make sure you get the full leaf which will be in tin rather than the regular bags that come in a box.

I sign off as I savor my third cup of the day, very slowly since I used my last three satchels for this large cuppa… Gotta go get some more tomorrow :p

So good this was my very first tea I tried and any time I drink it hot or cold it’s so good

Initially tried this as an iced tea, and that’s probably still how I prefer it in general. The fruit really pops with the cold temperature, however, the spices pleasantly surface when brewed and drank hot! Bold, a little tart, but very nice either way.

It is a good combination. I like it. I think it’s better cold on a hot day without any sugar or milk.

The bag may be biodegradable but don’t put it in your compost because it doesn’t degrade in time to for that. Maybe if you were to collect them and for a while and then boil them without any tea leaves for long enough they would start to biodegrade but I only saw that once for a biodegradable plastic bag on youtube.
