drank Passion by Tazo
1 tasting notes

I think this is one of my favorite Tazo tisanes. I have both the typical “paper” bags and the “loose leaf in mesh” bags. I vastly prefer the loose leaf version!
The taste is something similar to Red Zinger of decades ago; a lovely mix of tart and red. The color is so deep, I find myself experiencing it as a thickness on my tongue, though I know that’s only a trick of the mind.
This tisane goes beyond what I typically expect and takes me to a mindset of luxury and rich indulgence.
An extra bonus – I have a food aversion involving mango. This tisane HAS mango (under “tropical flavors”). I can drink it without issue; the mango flavoring is so subtly and softly present that – on the rare occasion I DO notice it – I easily move past with a new flavor presenting itself.

Somewhat new to such things as gaiwan, Yixing, and cooked/raw, puer… but an avid learner.

“Why Do You Drink Tea?” (started by IHeartTeas)

A good cup of tea is a thing of beauty to be enjoyed with abandon and sheer joy.
A middling to mediocre cup of tea is easily doctored (sugar, cream) and drunk while channel-cruising the tv, chasing children, or giggling with a close friend over squirreled away treats in the middle of your sleeping house about “acting like naughty twelve year olds” between startled jumps from the horror movie you’re both watching.
A GREAT cup of tea can be as good as a sensuous, all-engulfing session with your partner – but it’s safe and legal to do in the middle of a restaurant! (Having him stare back at you with the same glassy-eyed face of one gone brainless from pleasure.. that’s the moment of “I knew we were soulmates.”)


Because you can stare into a single kaleidoscope for a full day and never see the same pattern twice.
Because something as simple as changing the shape or material of the pot and cup shifts the kaleidoscope of flavors to a subtly but entirely new – experience.

Because I can.. Taste. So. Much.

..and all it takes is waking up a cluster of leaves gone to sleep.
