I think I’m finding that I dislike or have a lower tolerance for flowery/fruity teas. I thought this was tart, kind of bitter… I have a friend who loves it though, and so does her daughter :s

Tazo teas are made from the most extraordinary teas and herbs found anywhere, and they’re blended with an artistry that borders on magical. Tazo Passion is a tantalizing, incredibly bold fusion of exotic botanicals and tropical flowers. Its distinctive flavor is like nothing else on earth. One sip of Tazo Passion brings a luscious explosion of flavorful hibiscus, subtle citrus, tart rose hips, and a kiss of mango and passion fruit.

Not usually a fan of Tazo teas but I try not to judge before sampling something new. On another note it’s my cat Ivory’s birthday today, he turns 2 and it’s gone by so fast. RIP to Ebony who would have also been 2 today, I looked out of the window half an hour ago and there was the biggest rainbow I had ever seen and I was in perfect place to admire it. I’ve always called Ivory my little rainbow baby. Ebony and Ivory did everything together so I think it’s his way of wishing his brother a happy birthday from cat heaven :)
(sip, sip, sip) Very tart and sour with in a fruity berry like way. Still rather hibiscus heavy overall though. There is some sweetness but it tastes somewhat chemical and just doesn’t cut through the tartness enough for my liking. It does in a way taste like passion fruit but much tarter.
Not a fan of this at all, may have to throw this away and make another tea as I believe I will struggle to finish this cup. Much too strong hibiscus wise for me.
another that was finished prior to entering my cupboard!
Thank you Kat_Maria for the added in teabag.
I have a few friends from my old city who think they’re big time tea drinkers but are more the ‘type’ of tea drinker that basically only owns teabags and kinda does it because it’s ‘trendy’ to be a tea drinker and drink Starbucks tea. Only a few even know what loose leaf is, and I think they’re only aware of DAVIDsTEA. Look at me sounding all ‘Tea Elitist’ ; that’s totally not the intention here. To each his/her own, and you know – move forward at your own pace, right? If teabags do it for you, then right on.
My point, anyway, is/was that the most recent time I talked to one of them I made the mistake of bringing up tea and she got very excited about this tea in particular and asked if I’d ever tried it, to which I responded that I’d heard of it and was familiar with the company/brand, but had never tried it personally. She just went on and on about how great it was. I believe at one point the phrases “Best tea in the world” and “Hibiscus is so great!” were uttered at least once, which I thought some people here on Steepster might find amusing.
So anyway, I received this one unexpectedly from Kat_Maria and finally took the opportunity to try it to see what all the “Tea Drinking Hipster” hype is all about, and I can summarize this in one word which makes practically every Steepster user simultaneously cringe: “Hibiscus”.
How the hell do people love this and drink it on a regular basis!? It was one of, if not the, most sour/tart and way overly sugary teas I’ve ever tried and I was puckered up throughout the entire mug full. Some kind of horrible cross between cloying and painfully sour/tart. It was so bad. Yeah, I’ll pass on this one in the future…
When I’m craving something sweet that won’t make me feel like I’m breaking my diet, this is what I go for! It’s a little tart and a little tangy and it makes a great post-exam week pick-me-up. The colour of the liquor is an amazing plum red, and it smells as divine as it tastes.
