Passion Island

Tea: Passion Island - 5508
Vendor: Lupicia USA
Price: $5.50 / 50g
Vendor Description: Tea flavored with sour-sweet passion fruit and mango is gently blended with bright petals and floral fragrance.

Every so often I like to change it up with what I am drinking when I don't feel like having another cup of wonderful Japanese green. Currently I've been having this. Passion Island is the very close to the Paradise Green offered by Lupicia, with one main exception. This is a black tea.

The flavor for this is very short lived, but has a very full body to it. It is very fruity tasting and has an aroma to match. Both the aroma and taste are very hard to describe as being a particular flavor, but has a sweetness to it like it was a tropical punch. The flavor is smooth, rising to a lovely cusp of sweetness and tapering off.

Rating: 8/10

Conclusion: A very nice flavored blend, nothing terribly unique about it though. It's a nice change from the norm.
