I have no recollection of buying this tea. I was afraid that it may be OOOld, but the tea is still very fragrant, colorful, and flavorful. So, yay for found tea!

This tea has a very strong tropical fruit aroma dry, but the flavor is far more delicate than the aroma would indicate. The papaya flavor is very natural and there’s a lovely sweetness to the body. The finish is clean without the odd aftertaste that tropical fruit teas can sometimes have. Is it just me, or does artificial tropical fruit flavoring sometimes taste like the smell of BO? Especially guava! Eeewww… Rest assured this tea has a delicious natural flavor, and I’ll defiantly be going for a second steep.

I don’t know if it’s a result of artificial flavoring… even fresh papaya often tastes like feet to me. It’s a tricky fruit to get at just the right ripeness.

Jenn

You make a good point. My husband’s grandfather has sent guavas home with us, and we’ve had to pull the car over and put the fruit in the trunk because of the smell. I’d forgotten all about that. Yuck!

Stephanie

I totally concur!! Guavas and papayas do smell like BO! :) Papayas especially—they kind of have this vomitous aroma. But they taste good—so weird.

Indigobloom

I’m not a fan of Papaya either. It tastes very chemical-ish to me. Have you ever had a Durian fruit? those are the WORST smelling fruit. I thought it was smelly fish until someone told me it was a fruit!

Jenn

Indigobloom, I have a friend who has tried to convince me that durian fruit actually tastes good. Nope! I guess if you grow up eating it… na, still gross.

Jenn

Stephanie, papayas and guavas do smell awful at times but I still like the flavor of them when they’re ripe. I confuse myself…

Sick again…….. but perfect cup of tea with some honey for my sore throat. Really pretty red color. Very fruity, added some honey for my throat and I think it makes the tea smoother. I got the second steep and it was still pretty strong.

Nature’s Valium. I’m not kidding. And delicious, too.

Quite tasty! A little weak, but more leaves of course yield more flavor. Plenty of fruit, and for me, it is good for as many as 4 to 5 infusions without losing flavor. It also really exacerbates that fruity, sweet aftertaste known to tea connoisseurs after having a sip. Great for casual drinking, like sitting down with a good book and sipping it intermittently.

Tastes great iced (can’t drink this one warm). When I want it less fruity, I just use 50% of this blend and add 50% green tea.
