I thought I’d try this after sipping Butiki’s Mango Lassi earlier in the week. Today was snowy, bitterly cold, and therefore perfect for sipping and reading, and the Honeybush Mango seemed like a really good fit for these activities! I didn’t get all the way up to the recommended 212F because I was really impatient, but it worked out just fine: the tea has a definite ‘tea’ note, particularly up front, but sweetness, too (granted, this is my first honeybush—I like rooibos a lot and this seemed like another good choice).
There seems to be a bit of sweet sunshine-ness in this (if that makes sense), especially on the finish, and I don’t add sweetener to my teas very often; the sweetness is not overwhelming or hyper-mango, but it is good! Definitely a keeper. Also, one mug cooled a bit (hey, I’m reading a really good book)—it’s good cold, too! So this would be marvellous iced as well.
