drank Mango Black Tea by thepuriTea
709 tasting notes

I am hanging out in militiaJim’s office this afternoon
So we decided to have some tea
TEA FAIL
2tsp – 1 mug of water
the catch
he said “go flick the switch on the electric kettle it’ll give you hot water”
I walked into the kitchen, missed the electric kettle, saw the water filter, it had a flip switch on the spigot, i flipped it, steeped my tea (in warm filtered tap water) for 3 min
and got
nice mango juice ?
i mean wow, it was drinkable and yummy, not tea but juice
but yea i’m blind (give me credit i have 1 eye!)

so then since it wasn’t a hot steep, he added a touch of PG Tips and real hot water and steeped for 3 min+
and apparently the PG Tips kicked the mango teas a$!
it was bitter and icky and required cream

not to bad for the abuse we put that tea through!

LOL I had the same trouble with one of those faucets in NY. I’m use to one of those kitchen tap water heaters. I thought that is what they had and that I’d broke it. I was apologizing and offering to buy a new one which gave them a good laugh.

lol :) that’s exactly what i thought, we used to have the instant hot and that’s what i thought it was, the white plastic electric water kettle was being ninja and hiding against the white wall so of course the metal thingy looks like an appropriate item – But MilitiaJim gre up in NYC and apparently the filters are common there?

I am The Devotea USA. 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
