Ancient Polynesians used passion fruit as a tasty part of their rituals. We have made it easy to have a tasty ritual of your own! Passion fruit is artistically blended with premium Chinese oolong. It offers a mellow character, with hints of natural sweetness.

This is a really good flavored Oolong. The passion fruit flavor is distinct, but it does not overpower the flavor of the Oolong. These two flavors mesh very well together.
The Oolong is a greener Oolong, and it has that sweet, creamy taste and texture to it. Almost buttery but not quite. That creaminess marries very nicely with the flavor of the passion fruit.
The result is a soft, silky tea that is sweet with a tropical fruit flair to it. A little different from the usual Oolong, but, that’s what I’m liking about it: it has that familiar Oolong flavor but with just enough passion fruit flavor and sweetness to make it just a little bit unusual.
As it is winter and I prefer my teas served hot in this weather, that’s how I enjoyed this tea, but I suspect it would make a really fantastic iced tea as well, so I think I shall save the rest that I have for the warmer weather that will be here soon (time does fly!) It is also pleasantly sweet (some might find it a bit too sweet, but I’ve a sweet tooth!) so it doesn’t need additions. Great just the way it is!
