I was feeling thirsty when I was shopping at the local produce store and this caught my eye. I decided to buy it because I like mango and this had considerably less sugar involved than the standard sweetened iced teas like Lipton or Snapple. Also Good Drink is apparently a Canadian company and I like supporting domestic businesses.
Sadly it doesn’t seem to contain any actual mango besides the ‘natural flavouring’ and while it isn’t a bad tasting tea, it feels like false advertising to me. I’m not a hibiscus lover, but this does taste quite nice, lightly tart but it’s not trying to stage a hostile take-over of the rest of the tea. It’s likely the cause of the tea’s orangey-red colour – which is better than food colouring I suppose. The sweet-but-not-too-sweet vanilla flavour is probably what I like most about the tea, as it gives it an almost cream soda-like flavour.
So it didn’t blow my mind but it didn’t make me want to dump it down the sink either. It’s nicely thirst-quenching and it has a good-tasting flavour – thought it could be more authentic in terms of the mango content.
