I’ve tried quite a few different Tea of Life teas, and I’ve been happy with most that I’ve tried. At first, I thought that this Green Passion Fruit Tea was going to be an exception to that … but as I continue to sip, I find myself liking it more and more.
The first few sips were very delicately flavored, to the point of barely tasting passion fruit, but now that I’ve had more than a couple of sips, the flavor has really come to life.
The green tea is definitely the star of this show and is the strongest flavor I taste. It’s a light, refreshing green tea with soft vegetal notes and a smooth buttery taste. There’s no real discernible astringency to this tea, and absolutely no bitterness. It’s sweet and quite lovely.
At the start, the passion fruit is a very subtle taste. But I found that as I kept sipping, the passion fruit flavor intensified. This could be because either the tea is cooling more – sometimes cooler temperatures cause those flavors to pop! – or it could be because it just takes a few sips to get those flavors to develop on the palate. Either way, what started out as a really subtle note developed into a really nice passion fruit flavor!
Overall, I enjoyed this tea quite a bit. I didn’t think that was going to be the case after the first two or three sips … but as the flavors developed, so did my appreciation for it. Nice!
This one’s great iced!
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!
