drank Sweet Mango Chai Oolong by Teavana
553 tasting notes

This tea looks like trail mix when it’s dry. It’s just a bunch of dried fruit pieces with a few tea leaves found after looking really hard for them. I’m not sure if this is the correct mixture of it or if I got some of the product after it had separated. The dry tea smells almost sickeningly sweet and the first sip of it brewed was quite sweet as well. Once steeped, I noticed there had been a little more leaves hidden in there, but probably not enough to give you any caffeine fix if that’s what you are going for. I ended up not adding sugar, which is unusual for me and a testament to the sweetness this tea carries on it’s own. Mango is the main flavor I pick up on with a little pineapple. There is a sweetness that covers my tongue and a tang that hits the sides. They got the sweet mango part of the tea right, but I’m not sure where they got the chai part. There was just one lone clove and a couple peppercorns in my tea maker. It’s a nice light tea, but I’m not overly impressed. I’m guessing it would work well blended with something that has a deeper flavor, but I really don’t like the idea that I have to add another tea to make the first tea taste better or right. I expect to leave that work to the “teaologists” and to be purchasing finished tea. I’ll have to try it iced sometime.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! I like a little sugar in my tea. I love caffeinated tea, but since I limit myself to one cup a day, I have been exploring more rooibos and honeybush teas. Rooibos now = meh and I have upped my caffeine tolerance. BRING ME CAFFEINE!!!!
