Great pick-me-up. The nice thing about this tea is that it tastes good even after it’s turned lukewarm, making it a nice thing to have by your side while reading/using the computer.

This tea reminds me so much of the rosa de jamaica that I drank while in Guatemala (served cold, with lots o’ honey!). But its also a very nice tea to drink hot; Tazo Passion was a staple when getting together with my girlfriends at night to catch up on our day. We called it “hot, sweet Passion”. It’s best if its sweetened, otherwise, it’s a little too bitter.
Someone gave me a sample of this and I knew I would not like it. Some of the main ingredients are hibiscus, rose hips, lemon, and citric acid. I literally dunked my tea bag into the water and took it out (less than 2 second steep) and my whole cup was pink. It tasted like drinking straight hibiscus or rose hip tea. Super bitter, sour, and acidic. I keep trying but I will always hate hibiscus and sour teas, even iced with sugar.
I’m glad other can enjoy blends such as this, but I find it extremely unpleasant and undrinkable. The sour overpowers the fruity and herbal flavours underneath and makes it undrinkable to me. :(
I do like the vibrant magenta colour though.
Flavors: Bitter, Hibiscus, Lemon, Rosehips, Sour, Tart
This tea smells fruity, delicious, and a very pink color. Alas, to me it was sour….. I have no idea what I did wrong. All I tasted was the sour citric and nothing else. I am mostly a black tea drinker, which might be why I haven’t found a good herbal tea I enjoy. Maybe I will try mixing it and having it in the summer.
