Aww… Why does this have to be so darn expensive? I bought 20 grams for $2.70 and I had to use the entire packet for my small teapot. I can get a couple of whole mangos for that price! I know that in the grand scheme of things I wouldn’t even bat an eye paying that price for a drink at a restaurant, but I expect a better deal for tea I make at home.

This tisane is seriously just a bit of dried fruit with a few minor floral additions and flavorings. Thinking about how inexpensively I could have bought many of the ingredients at my grocery bulk section is a little irksome, but I suppose I’ll make this is a rare treat? At least it tastes pretty good.

My blend tastes heavier on the orange with a complimentary mango flavor, but I’m sure this would vary greatly depending on what comes out in the scoop since the pieces are so huge. It was nice last night as a hot tea and it tastes just as good this morning cold. There is a slight tartness at the beginning and end of the sip akin to freshly squeezed orange juice, but not quite that intense. In all honesty, this could be described as a watered down orange, pineapple and mango fruit punch. To me that isn’t a bad thing – I typically prefer drinking juice watered down rather than full strength. It’s just the cost that really gets me. If it weren’t for the price I’d rate this higher, but I can get much nicer teas for less.

I thought the same thing when I made this tea. There was not a lot in the bag for 25g.

Oh yeah, that is a little pricey then. Thanks for the review! I’m curious about this but am disappointed to hear that you need to use so much.

I’m waiting on a delivery with a bag of their Pink Passionfruit from the summer collection, hope it’s stronger than this! I sometimes just want to get myself a dehydrator and start making my own tisanes since a lot of them are just dried fruit+flavor extract.

I hate how heavy this one is. Pink passionfruit is much better value for the pricing.

I made a cup last night and was also pretty surprised by how little came in the bag. It tasted almost exactly like their Mango Madness, which is also a little pricey, but I think this one might be worse in terms of usage. It was tasty, but not THAT tasty.

It’s one of those tisanes I’m glad I tried, but I won’t be getting it again in a hurry.

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
