drank Mango Rose by Tea Guys
361 tasting notes

I suspect that Willy Wonka is secretly one of the Tea Guys. I popped open this sample and thought Caaaandeeeee! Not only is it a candy, but it’s like Runts. With some Nerds and SweeTARTS thrown in ta boot. But mainly Runts.

Post-steep it still has that distinct Wonka sugary candy smell, but the rose is more prominent. It’s like Willy Wonka thought “Hey, I could turn roses into a candy and then turn that into a green tea!” If you hate rose, then avoid this one. If you’re craving mango, then avoid this one. I can tell it’s rose, but mango is just a vague presence.

I have a crazy sweet tooth (Nerds being a favorite) and this tea satisfies that particular sugar craving. I’m on the third steep (still good, but probably this tea’s last) and the green tea has been able to keep up if not grow in flavor during each steep. This final steep is like a really sweet green tea. Mmm…candy tea… TG

i ordered some mango flavored teas from the states, cant wait to try some…

Cofftea

What a lovely and interesting flavor combo!

JonTea

One of those tea’s you dont have to sweeten?
Sounds awesome~!

Cofftea

lol JonTea- I don’t sweeten any of my teas:)

JonTea

Me neither :) But it’s just like a cool sweet tea.
Would it be good iced?

Rabs

This tea is ridiculously sweet, but in a good way — but you must have a sweet tooth to enjoy :D It left a really nice aftertaste that I really liked. I’m rather sad to only have a sample, but the combo sounded so odd that I was nervous to go with anything larger. I’m dying to try it iced: NOM!

Cofftea

Rabs- buy a mango green tea and add rose petals to it?

JonTea

Where you get the sample :P ?

Rabs

Ooh — that’s a really good idea! I just might have to try it :D

JonTea

Cofftea – Would that work? It sounds like it would surprisingly enough..

Rabs

You can find sample sizes on the Tea Guys website: http://www.teaguys.com/ They’re slightly more expensive samples, but they send a nice quantity. Just be sure to have some sort of clip to seal the small bags since they aren’t resealable :P I also highly recommend their Maple Sugar and Wild Blueberry. Evening Escape is also nummy. And welcome to Steepster!

JonTea

Thanks for the reccomendations and warm welcoming Rabs :)
I might be ordering soon :)
I love maple flavored teas, however my favorite maple tea is the one called Oh Canada by David’s tea. I rant about it quite often. :P

Cofftea

MAPLE SUGAR! It was maple sugar day here yesterday (or was it the day before?) 3 of us drank it before noon:)

JonTea- I haven’t tried it w/ mango tea, but I have no clue why it wouldn’t.

Bio

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
