I found this one in the back of my cupboard. I forgot that I had it, I think because I was confusing it with Paradise, which I’ve already tried and written about. They are fairly similar, both tropical-flavored black teas.
This is nice though. The base tea is fairly strong and slightly brisk, with a touch of pleasant bitterness. I’m not sure I’m familiar enough with the flavor of guava or papaya to be able to identify them, but this does have a nice sweet and ripe tropical flavor. It’s perhaps a bit similar to mango? I think I taste some banana as well.
I should really pick up some papaya and guava the next time I go to the supermarket, here in Texas they carry them year-round.
