I’m pretty sure this is the same tea found here: http://www.tehusetjava.se/shop/product/smaksatt-safari—102-38-1478.aspx. Its origin escapes me – all the main tea chains seem to share certain blends. I got this for a friend to try, but ended up with some that didn’t fit into the special Anna-fashioned Tea Travel Set™ gift canister.
I get no pineapple whatsoever, and not much papaya. This seems to be all passion fruit, with some vague floral notes. Going by scent alone, it’s not the kind of tea I’d buy for myself – I generally find passion fruit too sour. And that’s the case here as well – Safari is a little too sour, a little too flat and a little too boring to be a favourite of mine.
Completely pointless re-steep.
