drank Pink Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA
243 tasting notes

This is the first sample DAVIDsTEA has sent me that tempts me to actually go out and get the tea! I think I’m going to try to wring all the re-steeps I can out of this, because it’s just perfect for this evening. I’m fighting off my allergies something horrible, and its sweet tang allows me to release some of the tension that’s been riding my shoulders.

At first this reminded me of Teavana’s Dragonfruit Devotion but its aftertaste is fresher than the slightly perfumey note that plagues theirs. I have no firsthand knowledge of passionfruit or dragonfruit (other than the fact they sound like sci-fi tropes) but judging by these teas I’m left wondering if they taste similar.

We’ve been steadily replacing our Teavana teas with better (and less expensive!) versions from other sellers, so I’m glad this fell onto our radar. My husband absconded with half my cup, so I think he agrees with me!

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.


Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
