From 52teas

Tea of the Week for June 7, 2021!

What is a Curuba? It’s a Colombian fruit that’s aka the Passionfruit Banana. For this blend, I started with a very special green tea from Colombia. When brewed, these big, beautiful & wiry leaves offer a sweet, slightly vegetative yet fruity taste & a thick, creamy texture.

To these unique tea leaves, I added bunch of freeze-dried bananas & some finely ground, freeze-dried passionfruit powder. Now, I don’t know if a curuba fruit actually tastes like passionfruit & banana – but since it’s called the Passionfruit Banana – I decided that it should taste like that.

Sweet, exotic & delicious!

It’s also VEGAN, organic, gluten-free, allergen-free & all natural.

organic ingredients: green tea, bananas, passionfruit & natural flavors

Oh I may recognize this passion fruit flavor from a different 52teas tea – Blue Star maybe? I really liked that one, so I’m excited to encounter it again. It goes well with the banana and the green base, though the banana could be a little fresher tasting and the green tea a little clearer. I preferred Blue Star, but this one tastes quite fresh and is an interesting new take on this flavor. And I’m drinking it cold instead of warm like the other one, so it’s a different experience. It’s not quite tasty enough that I’d order it again, but it reminded me to request a reblend of that other one sometime!

Ooh I got this one as a freebie and didn’t realize it’s passion fruit. Now I’m excited for it!

AJRimmer

Yeah, it’s definitely a flavor I don’t see often enough in tea!

Dammann Frères does a lovely version, hopefully this is good too!

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen the combination of banana and passionfruit before, but I really like it! It embraces those underlying tropical flavours of banana and creates something really fun with tangy elements as well as the comforting familiarity of the 52Teas banana flavour. I love that this isn’t too sweet or too tangy/tart – just nice and approachable. That said, I think the noticeably grassy and vegetal flavour of the green tea is a little intrusive of that beautiful tropical fruit medley happening – but I also have to acknowledge I’m simply more sensitive to those notes as well.

I think Frank had a banana/passion fruit tea but this wasn’t the name.

52Teas

I’m not sure if he did or not, he may very well have had one – but it most likely wouldn’t have been with the Colombian base?

52Teas

Ha! I even had that one – and I don’t remember it. In my defense, we really do make a lot of tea – so it’s easy to forget one or two.

Roswell Strange

Oh for sure – I can’t even imagine having to keep track of all the past blends, haha
