Easily my favorite tea
July 14, 2014
Fruity yet not over powering. Good both hot or as Iced Tea. (I like to use half regular and half passion fruit-papaya.

This tea makes an awesome iced tea!! If you like a good black iced tea with a nice accent of fruit, then this is your tea. I first found it at a local coffeeshop, but really needed to cut back on the money I was spending there on a daily basis just to get this iced tea. I drink it unsweetened and it is so good. I would give it more than 5 teapots if I could.

I love this tea cold. Perfect amount of fruitiness and just the right sweetness. I personally like using sugar to sweeten it but I put sugar in all the tea I drink. You could definitely get away with using no sweetener at all if you prefer. I just bought the 250 cup bag to restock what I used up. I will definitely be buying this often. I always keep a pitcher in the fridge!! It tastes great hot too by the way.
A little bit of heaven

This tea has the best aroma and flavor of the many teas I have tasted. It is such a relaxing blend that the stress melts away even as I write about it.

Tropical and citrus are my favorite flavors. This tea offers the best combination with the addition of warm, sunny sunflower petals. An incredible mix and so smooth I cannot get enough. For me a must bulk order, always.
Love this tea

I love this tea. It has a wonderful tropical fruit flavor. I start my day with a cup of this tea.

This tea was the first I ever tried from the Republic of Tea and I have been hooked ever since. It's great hot or iced!
By far my favorite tea !
March 07, 2014
I've tried many other teas with passion fruit but none can compare. Not sure if it's the mango ( which I love) or the pineapple but this is my daily tea!. I would love to have a decaf version too.
There's Nothing Like It!

I have been drinking PassionFruit Papaya black tea for many years now. I have tried the samples (which is a great way to try something new) and they are nice, but I keep coming back to my favorite PFP, there's nothing like it! The sweet smell when its steeping, the first and last taste is always the same, very flavorful! Excellent tea. I also appreciate the fast service from The Republic of Tea. Shipments are delivered quickly. I rate you 5 teapots as well! Thank you for your samples, your products, and great service!
REALLY, REALLY, GOOD

I truly like the flavors of Passion Fruit Papaya Tea. My grocery was out of PFP tea and I had to opt for a different tea. I don't want to mention the name because this is truly my own taste bud talking but I did not like #2 at all. It was too spicy for me. I am very sensitive to spices (can't eat anything with pepper on it) so the flavor and taste of PFP is just perfect for me.

I have been drinking this tea since it went under the name of Zen Tea. It is wonderfully relaxing, perfectly enjoyable and delicious. I doubt if I'll ever grow tired of it. I have several other teas that I enjoy, but this is my very favorite. The minister of teas certainly got this one right!
Absolutely the best!

This is one of my absolute favorite teas. I drink it hot and cold, and don't ever get tired of it. I order the 250 bulk bags on line, and the shipping is fast. One time I had a problem where the teabags weren't sealed, and they shipped me out replacements. Great customer service along with great teas!
One of the greats!
March 24, 2013
Very much reminds me of our recent trip to the tropics when served over ice. This one will definitely be on my reorder list!

My son loves this tea. He searched everywhere for it to no avail. So as an extra special stocking stuffer, I ordered online. It was easy, shipped out fast and is sure to be a real pleaser while making me a star santa!!
My favorite flavor!

Excellent tea, it is a great balance between passion fruit and papaya. Great black tea, perfect favor, my favorite so far from the Republic.
Perfect Hot or Cold
November 16, 2012
This blend is perfect hot or cold. The tea doesn't get bitter, even if steeped too long. It's foolproof to make and fast became my favorite. No other brands even come close to a blend like this.
A great fruit tea
October 17, 2012
This tea has fast become one of my favorites. It has a great refreshing papaya fruit flavor. I was enjoying it in the summer and not also in the fall. Memories of summer in a cup....

This PassionFruit Papaya Black Tea is one of my new favorites! I sampled some at my daughter's house and had to have some. I'll definitely refill before this one is gone.
Best iced tea
September 12, 2012
This stuff makes the best iced tea. I buy the giant bulk tea bag refills every few months and brew it double strength and pour over ice. If you like fruit flavored black tea you can't go wrong with this one.
Perfect for Iced Tea

My sister shared this tea with me a year ago, and I'm so glad she did! The passionfruit flavor in this tea is so delicate, so natural, that it quickly became my favorite tea. Even my boyfriend, who normally does not drink tea, started drinking it every day! Bravo, Republic of Tea!
Still my favorite
August 26, 2012
I have loved this tea since I first tasted it as Zen Dream. I always buy it in bulk so I won't run out!

Excellent flavoring of fruits. Republic of Teas remains my favorite brand and this website offers a great variety coupled with excllent service.
July 31, 2012
This is my absolute favorite tea. I have been trying other teas to add a little variety to my tea choices, but I always come back to this one.
July 25, 2012
I have had teas from this company in the past and I have never been disappointed!! I love how you can taste the fruit and the papaya. I do however use two tea bags at a time because I love the flavor so much. Also the papaya helps with tummy issues. So, I feel it is a perfect way to start your day!!!

I seek out this wonderful tea! It's well-balanced and flavorful without having any one note take over. It is by far my favorite black tea.

This is my absolute favorite black tea. I usually make it as iced tea. The best.

I am a huge Ice Tea fan and love the Passion Fruit tea bags. I used to buy Ice Tea at lunch time through some of our local fast food chains. My husband started to do the math and asked me to try taking my own tea to work. The taste is certainly so much better and the savings in dollars and my time is worth it!

Love it! Great fruity flavor. Good hot or cold.
Reminds me of the tropical tea that was so popular a while back
March 23, 2012
Back in the late 80s tropical teas started making the scene. I loved them as they gave a lot of flavor, even if not sweetened. This one is the best on the market at this point. It is favor-full and refreshing with just the right mix of passionfruit and papaya.

I have been drinking this tea for a long time. It's like the one they serve at Cheesecake Factory and I absolutely love it. It's great as iced tea. I only wish I could find it locally and not have to buy online in bulk.
Dreamy Summer Paradise in a Cup

This tea has a very tropical, sweet aroma and equally beautiful taste. The fruity flavor is not overpowering and it does not taste artificial in any way. My husband loves it and he usually does not like fruity teas.
January 23, 2012
I am not much of a flavored tea fan, but this won me over. My favorite by far! this was my second order of 250 bags. I'm a fan for life.
If you like ginger peach...Try Passion fruit!

I ordered a tin of Passion Fruit Papaya without trying it first and got lucky!. PFP is pure black tea wiout being bitter with the hints of fruit. I must admit I do not have a sophisticated palate, but even I could catch the pineapple! Great tea! I highly recommend!

love this tea! great flavor hot or over ice!

I love, love, love this flavor of tea, and I drink mine iced! This is my favorite followed by Blackberry Sage and Ginger Peach! I really prefer a strong tasting tea, and this fits the bill! I also appreciate the free shipping over $50, which enticed me to place an order!
Best iced tea!

I really liked this tea! You can definitely taste the pineapple & papaya, if you want a more intense flavor, use 2 tea bags but its just superb as is
