Now that is a spicy meat-a-ball, er, I mean tea.
Dry, the mango smells so good. I couldn’t wait to jump in.
Steeped: I found the mango to be very weak, but I need to mention that I didn’t use as much leaves as they suggest. I very rarely do. I always find using the amount they say makes it too strong for me. This time I wonder if I should have done the amount that they suggested. At the same time, the kick of the chilis is unreal. It is definitely a spicy tea, which I’m not use to at all.
I do like this tea. It’s quite nice. It would have to be one of those ones that I reach for when I need something different and something to give me a kick.

I think this would be a sipping tea for me. I usually tend to drink my teas quite quickly, but this one is definitely something to sip on. I think I should only make 8oz of this at a time… not the usual 16oz.

Bio

My love of tea didn’t start until a few years after highschool, when a friend of mine made me an Orange Pekoe tea with milk and sugar. It was like drinking sweet nectar from heaven. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked.

Since then, I’ve branched out to embrace different flavours and kinds of tea.

There’s no question in my mind that loose leaf tea is the way to go. Absolutely NOTHING compares to it. I do have the odd bagged tea but I definitely prefer loose.

I would have to say, my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

White and green teas I find tricky. I’ve definitely started to love them, but I have to be careful I don’t overdue it and that I don’t oversteep.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
