It tastes more like a muscat-peach blend than mango – but the smell is just like fresh cut mango. Smooth and sweet, not a hint of bitter to it. Quite good, but more of a novelty than a daily drinker.
100 Tasting Notes
Smooth, a bit floral, almost to the point of breaking the smoothness. Long aftertaste with hints of the floral notes.
Wow on this tea. It tastes like…. I can’t place it. I almost want to say the water in the Le Sueur peas, that and rhubarb. So weird.
Dropped the rating more. The more I drink it, the more I think of urine. Pouring it out.
Very dry. Kind of a natural sweetness. Makes me think a lot of the blackberry black tea I used to get before the wife got into loose teas. This would probably be much better with a touch of sugar… Adding sugar seems to take away most of the dryness and brings out the berry flavor. Sugar bumps up the points a little.
Tastes more like citrus and lemongrass to me. It’s got a little bit of a sharp taste to it. It’s pretty good.
The tea has that Darjeeling dryness/sharpness at the end. Very smooth for a Darjeeling though. I can get notes of honey. Trying to come up with a word for the other taste at the beginning of the flavor – it’s not roasty but maybe toasted. Slightly creamy and warm.
The wife sprung this on me without telling me what it was. I am not sure what to think of it. Makes me think a bit of scotch – so I’m wondering if that is what she had before (yeah, it is)… A bit chocolaty. Very weird. I can almost get the nose of a scotch from it, and definite chocolaty flavors to it. I don’t think it is necessarily a good tea, but it is interesting for it’s odd similarities to a drink it should taste nothing like. Not bitter, not overly dry, just not very good.
Pretty good but not outstanding. Hints of bitter at the end. I can taste something faintly bergamot. That’s all.
This is lemon Pez. Pez has a unique taste to it that I’ve always really liked and this tastes like the lemon Pez, though with not as much sugar. There’s a natural sweetness but not to the same level as Pez.
It’s nice. Magnolia/jasmine type taste, smooth but a bit heavy. Not as light and crisp as I would like.
A very girlie tea. Mostly rosy and jasmine-y with faint bergamot. I wouldn’t really even classify it as an Earl Grey because of the faint bergamot. I really liked the jasmine aspect of it. It tended to get a little bitter as it cooled.
I thought this was a very odd combination of stout and smooth. Less harsh than other “breakfast” teas but with a lot of body.
Wow. I can’t decide it if is vile or somewhat interesting. The interesting part tastes like fresh snapped peas (non-cooked)… that have been doused in cigarette ashes. Yes, I believe that is about as complex as this one gets. The green bean taste saves this from being rated lower. I am staring at the mug daring myself to drink more but my stomach says nooooooooo.
Lightly sweet lychee flavor…..
Good depth of flavor, very complex taste, smooth end, sweet, stout and can stand on its own (doesn’t need sugar and cream). It’s still a new type of flavor to me so it’s hard for me to rate this compared to others.
Full orange flavor with underlying sweetness. Sooth despite the citrus flavor. Slight aftertaste that sticks with you that isn’t bitter but makes me think of orange rind.
When hot it makes me think of a toasty Macallan scotch. It’s kind of apple-y in the way that some of the lighter, sweeter scotches are. The mango flavor is outdone by the nutty and I have a hard time finding any of the coconut in it. It’s interesting but not great.
Light, sweet taste, kind of flowery finish. No bitter at all, very smooth. Sweet aftertaste that lasts.
Medium cherry flavor that is much tamer than the smell. Nice clean finish.
(Disclaimer: I just ate a bowl of chili.) Fairly light flavored, almost makes me think of something with a little lemon in it. As it has cooled, it’s gotten more bitterness through it. It’s pretty good but nothing really jumps out at me.
Soft texture, rising pepermint flavor to a smooth end. Naturally sweet but yet nothing similar to an overly sugared peppermint candy.
Pretty good tea, a pretty smooth ending with a bit of astringency but is smoothed out, perhaps by the addition of milk. My uneducated palate says “tastes like tea.”
This tea is interesting – good interesting. Tastes like very smooth Yunnan, but the end has a bit of….cream. And a bit of astringency…but the flavors are separate so it is not a spoiled cream taste.
This tea is like a milk oolong, but instead of milk, put in rice. And then eliminate any aftertaste whatsoever.
