Taster’s Review:

Mmm!  Passion fruit has such an inviting aroma, and this tea makes the most of it.  There are also faint notes of flower and the freshness of the green tea in the scent.  It smells so nice!

It tastes nice too!   The green tea base is light-to-medium bodied, with a fresh, vibrant taste.  It has a slight buttery taste and feel to it.  There is a mild, cleansing astringency to the tea, and only a very soft back note of bitterness that sort of rests on the back of the tongue.  This is not a distasteful or a “I-steeped-the-tea-too-long” kind of bitter taste, but, rather an enjoyable note that cuts through some of the sweetness of the fruit and tea.

The passion fruit is gently flavored – it doesn’t overwhelm the palate with its sweetness nor does it overpower the fresh, slightly vegetative taste of the green tea.  The fruit flavor is juicy, delicately sweet with just a hint of tartness.  This is really delicious.

This is a tea that is delicious served hot or iced – I prefer it iced with just a pinch of sugar to perk the flavor up just a little.  It is very refreshing!   I recommend adding this one to your shopping list for summertime – the tropical flavor of passion fruit offers the taste of a Hawaiian vacation, even if you can’t take one this year!

Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of “Gramma” and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn’t drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn’t cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn’t cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
