I won these teas in a contest that was run by Dan on Steepster that was great fun, and got me tea prizes! Dan will be running the contest monthly, so keep an eye out!
Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar, only slightly bitter, still astringent; a little splash of lactose free milk, got rid of the bitter
It is a mild mango flavor, but it’s a dried sweetened mango flavor not fresh and juicy. thepuriTea Mango Black is still my favorite mango black tea.
