This has berries in it? Are you sure? Smells like vanilla cookies to me…tastes like cookies. Perhaps there’s a hint of apple…no, not really. Just vanilla cookie goodness.

Green tea vanilla cookie sounds good, even if it was supposed to be berries!

Wanted something fruity today, but not overly sweet.

Made a pot of this today. A perfect choice with a dark chocolate cookie and finishing my to-do list.

I was given this tea in loose leaf form and I absolutely love it- I can brew it both strong and weak and it tastes fine either. I haven’t tried it cold yet, but I am sure it will be lovely!

And another one out of the cupboard! I do really enjoy this one, and it generally calms me down. Which is something I really, really need for the next, oh, 40 minutes or so.

Cherry seems to be stronger when brewed at 3 minutes. Shorter steeping time = less time waiting for tea = happy Jaime.

This is okay. I’m not a fan of the artificial peach flavor… and I tasted it in this blend. Not bad but not the best either. I didn’t add any sweetener to it either.

Ah, done with the conference for the day. Back in the room in my pjs (yes, I realize it’s a bit early, but I’m okay with that). Having my last bag of this. Very sad to see this go, but that just means there’s more room in my cupboard!!!

This is a surprisingly tasty tea to have with my lunch…a bag of popcorn. o_O

Preparation
8 min or more
Cofftea

I would have went w/ Gen Mai Cha:)

Jaime

No Gen Mai Cha at office…plus no decaf Gen Mai Cha. Only decafs after noon, unless I’m being forced to stay awake!

Meghann M

I had the plaintain coconut one with popcorn the other day. They compliment well!

Jaime

I would have had this one iced, but the ice machine is at the other end of the building and I’m to lazy for that today.

After a flurry of pms, I decided to have a nice pot of this to relax…and wait for the Notices to get fixed.

Absolutely love this tea. Sweet, ripe mango with just enough chili to be noticed/slightly tingly. Delish!!

Boiling 8 min or more
Cofftea

“and wait for notices to get fixed” LOL! Just don’t get too hot headed ba da dum ch! Ok that was a really bad chilli joke. Sounds amazing too! Do you sweeten it? What does/would that do to the mango/chilli/green bush ratio?

Jaime

No, I don’t sweeten it (I don’t really sweeten anything). I’m not sure what that would do…and I’ll admit, I’m afraid to try adding anything to it. I’ll throw a few bags in with your package and let you experiment!

Meghann M

Cofftea, it’s really sweet unsweetened (imho). The mango they use is a nice sweet ripe mango flavor. This was wonderful. I just wish I could find it in a store…my Whole foods and World market don’t carry the Raw Green bush teas. Hoping to hit up a new whole foods sometime this month!

Cofftea

Oooh thanks! My 1st green bush! And anything chilli makes me happy:) I don’t sweeten anything either, but this one has me curious.

Jaime

You’re welcome! I think you’ll really like it.

One of the few teas I’ve tried iced before I’ve had it hot.

Absolutely delicious! The chili is not terribly spicy; rather, it gives the tea an almost effervescent quality. Fruity, but not overpowering; you can still taste the raw rooibos underneath.

Brewed for 10 minutes.

200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

Smells delicious. Tastes like water with some lingering sweetness aka tastes like nothing. I can’t say for sure what kind of sweetness comes up. This isn’t tart or strong like most other fruit teas, which is a good thing since I don’t particularly like the strong tart tastes…. and I usually don’t like fruit teas. This one isn’t bad. It is very faint, and it is early morning and I don’t want to think. But I need to. Let’s see if this tea is enough for today! I have to work this Sunday! Nonetheless, I wouldn’t buy a can of this.

I got this as a free sample with the Republic of Tea cataloge. At least it was free. It was way too sweet for my taste, and I ended up dumping the 2/3 of the cup that I just couldn’t finish when the voices in my head went from saying “too sweet” to “asinign.” Too bad. It smelled pretty when I opened the packet, and it sure looked pretty, but I’m not a fan of this one at all.
