I’m going to sit on this one before giving it a rating – although it’s pretty tasty!

The passion fruit is a little lighter than in other Dammann Frères teas but there are a host of fruits and flavours it shares the stage with – some as yet to be determined (but I have 100g so lots of time to figure it out)! I think this green oolong is on the lightly roasted side – with darker gold broth. My brain translates this to the usual “ice cream cone” malt flavour of all roasted oolong teas; because of the flavouring though, that roast shifts and supports something interesting – lychee! As it cools, I get more mango too – the dried candied kind, I think. It’s neat.

There’s a lot of passion fruit here and I’m into it. I’d get this again.

#adventageddon Day Eighteen – 6/6

Thank the stars for a DF blend today that wasn’t orange and ginger! I did notice that a lot of my advent teas today were really tropically flavoured, but this was maybe actually my favourite!? It’s nice and medium bodied, and it tastes really nicely of candied passionfruit or mango. That sweet, syrupy tropical note without the intense tartness you might experience from fresh passionfruit. The oolong is a little floral, and it pairs nicely as well. The flavour kind of builds on your palate over the course of the mug, and the taste is just really clean and well balanced. Definitely a surprise hit for me!
