Hmm, now I have been kinder when brewing this, and it is indeed lovely. Very very strong, lovely gorgeous natural mango scent in the tea mixture. After brewed, the mango is much less overpowering, just this perfect balance of nice green tea with fruit, not too much fruit and not too little (for my taste). Lots of sunflower petals, not sure what they do to the taste (add texture?).

I did a second steep of this and it was a great idea. The wet leaves smell totally differently after the steep, like cut grass almost, almost a minty tone, and I got very curious about what a second steep would be like. Maybe because I used hotter water and left the tea for longer, it was more mango-ish. The tea also tasted greener, though not the minty-grassy tones the leaves smelled of! Just lovely, at both steeps.

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
