I was excited to find a Passionfruit tea at American Tea Room because I know their teas are high quality. And just as I expected, this one was no exception.
Delivered in a wonderfully sealed tin, this is a very dark black tea. It has small pieces of fruit and flowers scattered throughout it. It brews up dark and flavorful, with the passionfruit being a strong flavor. It takes milk well, and I often sweeten it slightly and drink it as my afternoon "snack".
It's so flavorful, I don't need to eat anything when drinking this tea in the afternoon, which makes it a nice low calorie snack. But occasionally, I brew a whole pot in the morning, put on my Keali'i Reichel music and sit back and dream of Hawaii.
When I brew an afternoon cup, I use one teascoop (teaspoon) of tea in a tea strainer placed in my mug. I bring the water to boil and steep it for 6 min. For a pot of tea (6 cup pot) I use 2.5 teascoops and steep it for 6-7 min.
American Tea Room is located in Beverly Hills and has brought tea drinking to a whole new level. They offer a variety of "TeaVents" featuring tea samplings along a theme. They have a wonderful online store and have very gracious customer service.
