This tea smells so good! Bright passion fruit scent. My first few sips when steeped were tart. Way to tart. Now that the cup has cooled a little the tartness doesn’t seem as shocking, but it’s still there. The sip is tart, almost a lemony sensation and the passion fruit flavor is hard to find. Right after the sip there is a flatness that I liken to cardboard that kicks in for a few seconds, then the finish alternates in some aromatic passion flavor. As this is, I feel like it’s missing something. One of my early EG experiences that opened up my EG curiosity was a passion fruit EG by Lupicia. It was part of their Hawaii blends line and they discontinued it shortly after I fell for it. I might try mixing some of this with an EG to see if that rounds things out a bit. Or maybe try it cold steeped. I’m not impressed for far, but I haven’t given up on it’s potential either.
Update: Adding Lupicia’s Breakfast EG to this cup and a little cream made it really nice.
