I didn’t have many expectations for this tea, I figured, hey, it’s a black fruit tea. Nothing amazing right? Thankfully my assumptions proved to be in error, because this tea really surprised me in a good way! The second I opened the bag my nose was bombarded with a tidal wave of juicy, lush mango. OH oh oh. So intoxicating!
Upon the first sip (after steeping for about 5 minutes) all I could taste is the mango. Bright, tropical, lush mango. I was anticipating some pomegranate but, nope. However, I decided that was perfectly fine, after all, because who can resist mango?!?
I finished about 1/4 of the cup while it still was hot, then stuck it in the fridge because having a cold jar of tea sounded so enticing and refreshing. And it was! Sweet, icy, with pops of fruity mango. Almost as good as the actual fruit.
And then, a few minutes into my glass of iced tea, I noticed I had a little bit of raspberry wine in a bottle left over from a girl’s night the weekend prior. Raspberry and mango? Why the heck not? Into the mason jar went the wine. Wow. Things just went from really good to really, really great. This is a win-win all around. Hot, iced, or mixed with another beverage, Pom Tango pretty much rocks. I seriously cannot think of one good reason anyone shouldn’t buy this tea.
