I haven’t enjoyed this box quite as much as the first I tasted through, but I did really like this one and I found it delightfully different from anything else they had included thus far. Unlike Dustin I thought the banana was more prominent than the passion fruit, but there’s certainly an acidity and tanginess from the hibiscus and flavourings that reads really playfully like tropical passion fruit. The banana note was really fresh and, indeed, stayed away from the candy-type of creamy banana flavourings that are most commonly used in tea. It was so fresh and lively, and I feel like it almost gave me tutti-frutti sort of vibes? The green rooibos base is smart too; it adds some body and a hint of fruitiness but mostly just really creates a great canvas for those fruity flavours to really pop and come to life in the cup.
I’ve been getting the smaller size of Almost’s boxes so I only have the one tea bag left of this, but it’s been hard to not just immediately make it again – I just enjoyed it quite a bit!
