It has a musky guava-like character with a slightly acidic profile ranging from sweet to tart depending on the time picked. This profile makes it a perfect match with the astringency of our Ceylon tea. Fantastic hot or cold, this is one tea youll want to savor again and again.

Extra Info:

Passion Fruit does not get its name from its passion inducing flavor. The fruit was given its name by Jesuit priests in Brazil sometime in the 1700s. The Jesuits felt that the crown shaped flowers of the fruit looked like the crown of thorns worn by Jesus before he was crucified, an event known as the Passion of Christ. During colonial times, as Jesuits traveled throughout South and North America, they brought the fruit with them and planted the seeds in the gardens of their missions. In fact the Jesuits were probably the first people to cultivate them in California where Passion Fruits are now widely grown commercially. The flavor of Passion Fruit is unique.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.

Ingredients:

Organic Black tea, natural passion fruit flavor,

Origin:

This passion fruit flavored tea is mellow and lightly sweet. I love the natural flavoring.

Besides being delicious, if I drink two or more cups, I feel very alert and smarter!

This is a nice fruity flavored tea. I've never had passion fruit before, so I guess that's the flavor I taste. I couldn't distinguish a certain fruit. I can only imagine what it would taste as an iced tea. It's nice and smooth with no unpleasant aftertaste.
