The bottoms of the tins of my Naivetea Passion Fruit and Lychee oolongs are getting distressingly close, so I am on the hunt for replacements. I discovered this tea company offers both passion fruit and lychee, so I ordered samples of both. I like that this company appears to get their teas direct from Taiwan, which is how Naivetea used to do it.

The aroma on this is super promising. Lots and lots of juicy passion fruit. The single-serve sample was perhaps a bit more leaf than I would usually use, so I dropped the steep time a bit, and it came out well. Any extra-vegetalness I am attributing to too much leaf, but even so there isn’t much. This may be the tea I am looking for: lots of passion fruit, lots of floral green oolong. It seems perhaps a bit less naturally sweet than the Naivetea, but that may be down to over-leafing. This is probably enough to get me to order a larger amount and then do a side-by-side with the Naivetea. Promising!

Thank you, I’ve been looking for blends similar to Naivetea since they closed down. This sounds promising!

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
