50
drank Mango Nut by Teas Etc
698 tasting notes

Steep Information:
Amount: 3 tsp
Additives: none
Water: 22 ounces filtered boiling
Tool: Cast Iron Teapot with Mesh basket strainer
Steep Time: a little over 7 minutes
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell:
AmazonV: Fruity nutty coconut
MilitiaJim: There is coconut, and other things. I don’t know what though.
Steeped Tea Smell: Coconut rooibos
Flavor: Sweet coconut rooibos
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: slightly nutty
Liquor: translucent reddish-orange

MilitiaJim-If this was sold as a coconut tea it would be pretty good, three stars maybe. Sold as a mango flavor, the complete lack of mango earns it zero stars and a snarl of irritation.

AmazonV-What he said, It was a good coconut tea, but the disappointment at the lack of mango (the reason I bought the tea, he loves mango) runs high.

Luckily I am sharing this tea with some other people and did not get the larger size. They can be forewarned this is a yummy coconut tea and be happy with it instead of being surprised and unhappy.

Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar, I always love sweeter things for dessert.

:) I am seriously trying to get it clean, and dry, and swap for one of the other pretty ones…but i keep forgetting (i have one in my fiance’s clan plaid!)

SoccerMom

Hmmm a 50 that’s disappointing. You know I do love coconut though so this might not be a bad thing.

AmazonV

I think the 50 is more because we were disappointed in the lack of mango…but not as good as coconut custard for sure-stick to that one (yumyum)

SoccerMom

So I am to keep pushing coconut custard right? LOL

AmazonV

YES Step 1 get everyone addicted, then step 2..?…, step 3 PROFIT! gotta figure out that middle step first

SoccerMom

Step 2 could be keeping drinking coconut custard ourselves!! I know that in Scarface we learned your not suppose to “get high on your own supply” but since I’m pretty positive AL Pacino wasn’t referring to tea this rule does not apply.

I’m revisiting this post and thought ’what’s a mango nut’???? They have these huge seed pods, don’t they? I think I am losing it…. What really is a mango nut?

AmazonV

yea about 1/3 of the fruit is the big seed thing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mango
you have to peel the skin, then slice off the fruit, or get messy, one or the other

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
