Thank you Jillian for trading for this tea. The blend of saffron and mango interested me too and it was something I really wanted to taste.

I have had this for a while and over that time had many cups of it so I was surprised to see that I have not yet reviewed it. Until now that is.

Steeping time and temperature as stated on the box (despite my distaste for boiling green tea) I have followed instructions exactly.

The liquid created is burnt orange in colour with a potent juicy mango fruit smell. The fruit is not as strong as the smell (unfortunately) and there is also a little sweetness with a slight bitter and perfumey taste.

In honesty it’s hard to detect anything special about this tea when it comes to pure flavour. It’s quite tasty for a bagged tea don’t get me wrong but it’s not quite what I had in mind.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
