The tropical fruit that plays hard to get with the sour taste at first, then entices you back for more with the hint of sweetness in its after taste.
Apart from reminding you of the last bitter sweet romance you had at a tropical paradise, it is also a great source of Vitamin A and C.
In 100 g of passion fruit, it can provide 42% of Recommended Daily Intake of dietary fiber, 25% of Vitamin A and 50% of Vitamin C.
Here are the steps to making a passion fruit Oolong tea to get half of your daily dose of Vitamin C.
Step 1: Scoop Out the Pulp for 4 Passion Fruits
You need to separate the passion fruit pulp from 4 fruits, seeds and all.
This is done by slicing each fruit in half and scooping the pulp out with a spoon.
As a result, you get around 120 ml of the golden pulp, ready to drop into a cocktail shaker.
Step 2: Mix the Pulp and Oolong Tea Into a Cocktail Shaker
Since we will be using plenty of ice with the cocktail shaker, hot brewed Taiwan Oolong tea on the spot works pretty well.
Make sure you add more loose leaves than you used to compensate for the dilution from the ice, and still get the Oolong flavour among the passion fruit.
So we will use 6 oz (177 ml) of hot water at 195 degrees Fahrenheit (91 degrees Celsius) with 4 teaspoons (4-6 g) of loose leaf Taiwan Four Seasons Oolong for the tea brew.
Then add plenty of ice cubes into the mix to make sure you get enough oomph in your cocktail shaking action.
Step 3: Shake and Enjoy Your Passion Fruit Oolong
Once you have shaken the cocktail shaker long and hard for the drink to mix well, you’ll be thirsty enough to gulp down the tea in one go.
