Ok, both the scent of the dry leaf and the flavour of the steeped tea transports me back to my Pink Passionfruit obsession. Here were its ingredients:
Apple, apple pomace, rosehip, sweet blackberry leaves, hibiscus, passionfruit, artificial passionfruit flavouring.
To compare, here is Passion Punch’s:
Apple (apple, citric acid), white tea, rosehip shells, hibiscus, sweet blackberry leaves, passion fruit granules (glucose syrup, concentrated passion fruit juice, apricot pulp, modified starch, sodium alginate), natural and artificial passion fruit flavouring.
Incredibly similar. I think that apricot pulp is making a slight difference in this one, but maybe only slightly. And I can’t taste the white tea base at all due to the strong (artificial) passion fruit flavours, plus apple, plus muted hibiscus. Never understood the point of adding actual tea leaves to a blend when you won’t even be able to taste it in the end. It’s kind of a waste. And then you’re paying up the wazoo for it because of its white tea base.
Had this iced, brought back great memories of Pink Passionfruit but also reminded me of how I got tired of that one after ripping through more than 200g of it. Even four years later, I’m like, “Yep, good, but I’ve had my fill.”
