Naivetea Passion Fruit Oolong


According to Naivetea this is an Alishan oolong infused with natural passion fruit. The dry leaves were dark green and tightly rolled. Some yellow flower petals were visible. The passionfruit flower doesn’t have yellow petals so I’m curious to know what they are exactly. The aroma  hit me as soon as I opened my sample. It was overwhelmingly citrus with just a hint of oolong. I steeped this tea in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker using 195 degree water for 3 minutes. The liquor was a light golden color.

The taste wasn’t as intense but it was still very citrusy. It was surprisingly floral as well. The oolong came through in bits and pieces but it was definitely there. I have a feeling that this selection would be fantastic iced. The thing I liked best about this tea is that it didn’t have an artificial sweetness to it. I’ve found that to be a chronic problem with fruit teas. Naivetea has managed to find a nice balance in most of the flavored teas that I have tried. I would definitely recommend this tea.
