Passion Fruit Iced Tea

A refreshing iced green tea, with the punch of passion fruit…



I had an extremely busy yet happy week. Sometimes, even if you are busy, if you are liking what is happening, you don’t feel tired. In fact, this week, I feel even more tired even though I am more at home. From plant shopping, to a couple of breakfast meet ups and then a yatch trip, I have had a blast of time with a group of beautiful people, who have been making my life quite interesting. When you get used to a certain set of activity and suddenly go off the hook, you may feel dejected and depressed about how life is. That include not being able to be financially independent or not being able to be more productive.


This is the time, when we need to look at matters that really don’t make sense to anyone but just gives you a whiff of happiness. Somehow, HD feels that there is something crazy about meeting random ladies at some park or beach. But then I have been feeling exhiliriating meeting with a different crowd of people and just being myself with them. It really helps in keeping your mental state going. At a time when relationships are being taken for granted, giving yourself space and relationships outside your own circle does give you a feeling of deja vu…



Coming back to the recipe for today… I have already written about my initial experiences with passion fruit in the only passion fruit recipe I have on the blog. Hehe… I don’t think I want to repeat it. Covid has made us so lazy that I prefer online shopping even for groceries than move out on my own. During one such online browsing, I found a pack of passion fruits at a very good price and decided to order it. It went into the fridge and rested for around two weeks. I was really wanting to make a pavlova recipe but then I just kept procrastinating – did I say something new? 😕 Finally when I ended up taking out the pack, it looked like it was threatening to die, and hence I converted it into this multifruit iced tea, that was super delicious and refreshing…


The tea base used is green tea, so that the color of the passion fruit would show off. Making it the regular way would mask the beautiful color. Since passion fruit is not enough to give enough body, I added the juice from one orange and a lime too. I have found that instead of trying to take over, it simply stays at the back and lets the passion fruit do its magic. The end result was an absolutely stunning to look yet amazingly fresh. This drink would surely give iced tea haters a little reason to start loving this drink. What more, it is a good way to have some refreshments with very limited calories. Off to the recipe…
