So much papaya

Santa Monica, CA

I know, it's a papaya tea, but I was expecting something with a little less papaya flavor. To me this tea has a funny, almost chalky aftertaste. If you love passionfruit and papaya, then this tea might be a hit with you because the flavors are very strong. If instead you are looking for a great tropical tea that is even better iced, then I recommend Mango Ceylon. That one tastes like what some restaurants serve as their tropical iced tea.

I just love you!

Omaha, NE

I was having PassionFruit Papaya withdrawal. It was terrible and then I found Republic of Tea again. I thought I lost you. You saved me. I had the tin open and a tea bag steeping before the delivery man was in his truck! Thank you so much.

Easily my favorite tea

Carrollton, TX

Fruity yet not over powering. Good both hot or as Iced Tea. (I like to use half regular and half passion fruit-papaya.

Warren, MA

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.

Pipe Creek, TX

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.

Taste the Sunshine

***, PA

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.

By far my favorite tea !

Macedon, NY

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!

Randolph, NY

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!

Portola Valley, CA

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.

Most refreshing pleasurable tea!

Love this tea!

Lincoln, NE

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!

Kansas City, MO

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!

Perfect Hot or Cold

Pittsburgh, PA

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.

Best iced tea

Portland, OR

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.

A Sip of Heaven

Irvington, NY

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!

Sooooo Goood!!

Bellingham, WA

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 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!

Reminds me of the tropical tea that was so popular a while back

Danville, CA

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.

Love it!

Boca Raton, FL

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.

If you like ginger peach...Try Passion fruit!

St. Paul, MN

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!
