A staple of my iced tea drinking. The “fruity tea” is how I usually describe it. Take it with between 6-10 lemon juice (packets), and one teaspoon/packet raw sugar. Both work well to bring out the rose hip and mangoness. Not a fan of this hot (NOT AT ALL), but iced? nods Also like that it is herbal.
I love this tea with lemonade! As I said in my other review, I’m not a big fan of fruity teas but this one is really yummy, especially with lemonade. One of my favorite drinks at Starbucks!! Though I always get it unsweetened just in case…
I’m definitely going to try what some of the others recommended and mix it with other drinks as well.
Had Starbucks’ shaken variety today with 2 pumps of sweetener (when the barista asked me if I’d like any sweetener, I replied “Just a little, please,” in which she responded “Normally we put 4 pumps.” I figured “just a little” should translate into half that)… It was pleasant; not too sweet nor fruity, with a slightly tangy aftertaste.
I’m not too big on the tartness of this one, but maybe I should PUMP IT UP four times over with sweetener like the barista recommended next time to adjust it more to my liking. I’ve had several friends order it mixed with lemonade, so that’s yet another version I’ll have to try. Expect more tasting notes from me on Tazo’s Passion [Shaken] Iced Tea in the future!
Any time you mix hibiscus and rose hips, the result is somewhat predictable — bright and tangy. The lemongrass and other flavors are present enough here to make it more interesting, and the attractive red color is always a plus in an icy glass. Why some folks add lemon, baffles me.
