Day 97 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA (backlogged).
Bought a cuppa in-store.
I found this to be a lovely blend. The fruitiness of the mango and “grassy” flavour of the green tea mixed very nicely, creating a harmonious and delicious blend. The first resteep was quite nice as well. A second resteep (what I’m currently on) leaves the tea much more strong than the mango, though the latter is still present.
Oddly enough, I think that the mix between the green tea and the mango is what makes it so nice for me. Mango Madness tasted too much like pure mango, and made me want it to have the vibrancy of the fruit instead, which I doubt I’m ever going to find in a tea. However, the equally strong green tea flavour gave a nice counterbalance and reflexivity, making the mango flavour more of a sweet fruity addition rather than an overdemanding flavour.
Definitely something I’d like to have more of. And if it’s this good hot, I can only imagine what it would be like iced, the way it was originally meant to be served!
