An old, reliable favorite. One bag does well in a 20 oz cup, because hibiscus (also the key ingredient in jamaica/sorrel/bissap) is so strong. It will also stain, so watch out! Had it on the go from Starbucks, and did my usual one bag in, one bag on the side maneuver to save one for later. The advantage to drinking Passion, versus steeping loose hibiscus, is that in addition to not having to rinse it for dirt and loose pieces, Passion is a bit sweeter than hibiscus straight up, which can be a little tart. Whereas I prefer sugar in my hibiscus brews, I like a bit of honey with my Passion. I also really like how that last clause wrote itself just now.

Unfortunately all tea stains. I’m such a klutz you have no clue how many shirts I’ve ruined.

drhiphop

True. Maybe I should say hibiscus dyes, because somehow a bright pink splotch is more insulting than a brownish one, but by dunking the whole garment, one can enjoy her cup of tea, and spruce up the ole wardrobe.

Cofftea

Oh see I’d like a passion stain better cuz I don’t like the common tea color.:) Could see why that’d be horrible for a guy though.=P

drhiphop

Not if he’s fashion forward!

Cofftea

Eh I don’t like guys in pink lol.

This bag of Passion is the last one of sampler box I had from Tazo. It brews to a deep purple-red color and smells like cherries and other berries. The taste is tart and floral with a moderate pucker.

Hibiscus, booooo! Actually this tea is really good in the iced-tea lemonades that Starbucks sells.

Ricky

Agreed, I tried it by itself and it wasn’t as good, but with some lemonade and melon syrup it’s really delicious.

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

Yeah, I doubt I’d buy this on its own.

Still trying to drink all of my bagged tea! My kitchen cupboard is overflowing with boxes of them D: I haven’t had this one so I thought I’d give it a shot. The aroma is very, very pleasant. I was afraid of the flavor because of hibiscus. It most always ruins hot beverages for me… But it’s actually quite pleasant as well. Not as tart as I thought it would be. It’s sweet and juicy. A little tart but it fits.

My tea swap friend also gave me a couple bags of this tea. Against my own judgement, I steeped this one hot. It really should be iced with a lot of sugar. I found it to be very tart, which according to others is because of the hibiscus? It is beautiful to look at though…very pinky purple. It gets dark really quick too. I think I only steeped this for 3 minutes, if that. I also didn’t think I could taste all the ingredients…there are so many! Next time, I’ll try this iced.

ashmanra

Although I am not crazy about this one, I used to drink it iced when exercising, and would mix it half and half with orange juice. It tastes like guava juice then!

Tealizzy

That sounds good! Thanks for the tip!

What a treat! A friend greeted me at her door with this served iced in a fancy Murano Italian Goblet. The presentation was so gorgeous I plan to copy for entertaining. She topped it off with some delicious white chocolate covered strawberries. As for the tea itself, I needed to sweeten it because my first sips were tart with a fruity aftertaste.

hot berry cider. Not bad, but also my default when I hit a starbucks with friends and it’s too late for caffeine. It makes me want more tea… other, better tea! but overall, it’s tasty and keeps me warm :)

MaddHatter

I agree, Starbucks should stick with coffee, their teas are lacking, even the “full leaf” teas they offer leave a lot to be desired. Have you tried this one iced? It is slightly more palpable…

Indigobloom

I’ve been tempted to try it, but I’m afraid it will just taste like juice! I’m not the biggest iced tea fan, unless it’s a Long Island! :P
but I think next time I will try it iced. Just to see!

Ever since my close friend from med school brewed this tea (either sun or cold brewed), I fell in love with this tea! I haven’t tried it until I received some in a swap! This tea is absolutely delicious iced. I know that I don’t like hibiscus hot, so I cold brew it! It is natural, mildly sweet juice! I love the red/purple color of it as well.

Iced 8 min or more

[Backlog] – I’ve had this tea quite a few times now (iced more often than hot). I think it’s best when it’s sweetened and iced. Without sweetener, it’s not all that special — tart & lacking a deep kind of flavor. It’s not a spectacular tea, but it’s actually one of the only Tazo teas I like. I might have to buy more of this tea to ice now that the weather is getting hotter.

Always good to know another hibiscus lover! It’s one of my favorite flavors for an herbal tea.

Gingko (manager of Life in Teacup)

This makes me want to get some hibiscus tea too! I’ve never had hibiscus tea, but I love eating hibiscus flower. I used to get hibiscus flower snacks from Trader Joe, but they no longer have it. Any suggestions where else I can get the preserved hibiscus flowers?

I almost feel as though I wasted much of my weekend as I received two tea orders (one more should be here tomorrow) and tried nothing new. In an attempt to rectify this, here is the Tazo Passion.

I was looking for a decaf because it is so late.The description of the herbal tea sounded good, like it would be fruity. The smell of the bag is faintly fruity with a hint of cinnamon. The brewed tea is dark red, and smells strongly of citrus and hibiscus. The flavor is very tart (I brewed hot with no additives), but not unenjoyable. Unfortunately, I think the tartness from the citrus and tropical fruit juice is overpowering almost all other flavors, I hardly taste anything else. Maybe I oversteeped it? I think the tea probably needs to be brewed with some more earthy tones, maybe a vanilla, to help round out the flavor and make it more palatable.

That’s a good suggestion…I can hardly drink this tea myself, it’s so tart.

Jillian

I think it’s the dreaded hibiscus that’s likely causing the tartness. Bleh.
