Finally getting around to trying this one! I’ve shared it with a few people now, but this is the first time I’ve personally tried it. And it’s weird because when I was picking teas I was craving this one so much, and I’ve literally never had it before.

And then, when I took my first sips I distinctly thought “Meh, this isn’t that impressive” but realistically with five other cups of tea in front of me to choose from this was the mug I kept coming back to for sips (even over consistent favourites like Cranberry Pear) and the first one I finished off, so there’s gotta be something about it that I really, really loved.

I don’t know; the rooibos was sweet and very natural tasting, and the fruit was juicy and mildly passion fruit flavoured, even if I don’t think it was super distinct. I definitely wouldn’t guess passion fruit right away if I was trying it blind, that’s for sure. Maybe it’s just one of those teas that really builds in flavour as you sip it?

I have lots left from my 50g purchase, so I’ll be sure to have it again sooner rather than later – and I definitely want to try it as a cold brew; I think that could yield really good results.

And added bonus: this is local! I love being able to support a local loose leaf store!

OMGsrsly

6 mugs of tea at once?! That is impressive. :)

Passion fruit is a difficult flavor to deliver, so often it’s done as a greener version of pineapple or just a sweet citrus sort of this. This tea captures it really well, with th slight melon’ish flavor and not so sweet finish. The Rooibos itself is quite good, bright without being overly sweet either. I was a bit worried this tea would just be another ‘tropical’ mix but I find myself liking it more and more with each sip! Thanks to roswell strange for sending a sample to my wife!

Sipdown!! (192)

Had the last of this cold brewed and somehow managed to bring out the passionfruit flavor. I am not sure what I changed but it is there today and wasn’t in the last bottle. This is still most prominently sweet rooibos but that flavor gives way to fresh passionfruit goodness right at the very end of the sip. Subtle but present, which has made for a pleasant last cup. However, at the end of the day this was merely okay and so I am not rushing to stock it. I am very grateful to my awesome tea twin, Roswell Strange, for the chance to try something new :)

So… I sent you more tea today. But only like four more samples – and two are definitely just one cup samples so don’t panic! I was mailing stuff to Courtney and since my stuff from 221 had just showed up took advantage of the new goodies to share some things with you (two Stash teas I don’t think you’ve had, and two fancy shmancy straight blacks for your journey/quest).

VariaTEA

lol Yay! So is that two packages I am waiting for now or just one? You have to stop sending me tea :P

Roswell Strange

You’ve got the one with stickers, right? Other than that one there are two coming in just regular mail/envelopes – so not a bunch. The older one has a Menthe Soleil bloom in it.

VariaTEA

Oh dear. I am trying to stay under 200. I think your job is bad news for my attempt to reign in my cupboard because now your are ordering/sharing more tea :P

Roswell Strange

I have to make up for the lost time when I was only receiving tea from generous Steepster members and couldn’t afford to reciprocate ;) Also have to get you back for making my cupboard balloon :P Oh, I also got a large sample of Peanut Butter Marshmallow Treat today so no need to pass that one along :)

VariaTEA

I am still waiting for mine so you will have to tell me how it is

Roswell Strange

So much for cracking open my plain Marshmallow Treat, eh? I have two new Genmaicha samples (PB being one of them) to finish up first…

VariaTEA

haah you are just never going to get to it :P

VariaTEA

I should just send you a sample of it so you can try it.
