Taster’s Review:

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!
