Wow. This is MANGO TEA. Yes, it deserves all caps. Probably the most distinctively mango tea I’ve ever had. It’s smooth, sweet, has a very true-life mango flavor. You would think all these things would combine to give a delightful tea. And it does… Kinda.

See, I’ve got this thing against flavored oolongs and greens. It just makes me grumpy. Oh sure, sometimes it’s done right – I love the creamy coconut flavor of GM’s Coconut Pouchong – but that one is the exception for me, not the rule. This one is a bold mango flavor and it’s just too overwhelming for me.

However, if someone is looking for a good, mango-juice-lite type tea, this would totally be the winner. And since mango is the husband’s favorite fruit, I passed the rest of this cup (8oz) on to him. He was fairly delighted.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
