Hello from the ISLANDS, friends! It’s me! Sipping delicious passionfruit tea from under a flowering palm! Attractive, tattooed men are fanning me! I’m going to ride a dolphin later!
Oh wait, I’m in Pennsylvania, and it’s raining.
Sad but true: I’ve been sitting on this sample for, like, a month. I haven’t reviewed it because the word “Hawaii” makes me sad. One of my best friends moved to Hawaii half a decade ago and basically disappeared from my life altogether. I miss them so much that, like, seeing a reference to Lilo and Stitch feels like a laceration to my spirit.
But hey — YOU don’t have a weird thing about Hawaii! It didn’t steal any of YOUR pals! You probably like Hawaii (on principle — who can afford to fly there?).
And oh gosh, this tea really is tasty. No joke. It’s juicy and ripe and fruity and has a very robust black base. Wow. It genuinely is one of those beefy beach boys showing up with a platter of fruit. Thanks, Mr. Muscles, for this lovely dish. SAVORY.
This tea is so delicious it’s ALMOST making me forgive the entire state.
Here’s the scoop!
