Much better the second time around although passionfruit is still not my favourite fruit flavour for tea. When I like it, it’s usually in combination with some other complementary fruit like mango or something. Drank the last of this from my sampler. Happy to try it and happy to see it go.
I’m not going to rank this tea quite yet since I’m not sure I gave it a fair shake. I have another serving so I will try again. I was eating an intense chocolate cake while trying to drink this last night and it didn’t go well. Made the tea taste off and very lackluster. On it’s own it might be better but it doesn’t do well against flavourful food.
This was a gift from my cousin-in-law, who I am trading teas with. I’m not sure why she picked Boh. Maybe because it’s sold on Amazon? Unlike the other reviewer of this tea, I got an intensely lime experience with not much ginger at all. I was intrigued by the suggestion to steep in ginger ale, but I actually don’t like ginger that much to ever keep ginger ale in my house. This was tasty enough and I will probably drink the rest of it, or maybe give it to my mom who I’m visiting next week.
This is my favorite tea. It is great steeped hot and also cold brewed. I take it both with sugar and without, but find that the sweetness of the sugar go with the sweet smell of the tea. It feels like I’m eating candy.
Cold brewed this tea presents a refreshing escape from a hot day. The aroma of the tea isn’t as strong when cold brewed but the sweetness is more pronounced. I don’t add sugar when I drink it cold brewed. :)
intense ginger zing, subtle lime notes, not overpowering. a surprising tea. according to the box this is best served strong with a sprinkle of cinnamon, or iced with ginger ale. I like it on the lighter side with a short steeping time. after the initial spice shock it is refreshing and tangy. The basic tea blend is probably BOH Cameronian, citrusy BOP from Malaysian highlands.
One of the teas I brought back from Cameron Highlands, Malaysia. It tastes almost like my Mango Bubble Tea. Nice!
Did some googling and is pleased to see that someone has came up with a cocktail with this. Going to try it out the next time.
