Three minutes is a much better steep time for this tea, at least to my taste, although I’m surprised to still get a hint of bitterness on some sips. It’s amazing how much this tea smells like a fresh, ripe, juicy mango when brewed. I could just inhale the aroma all day. Once again the taste is mangoey but surprisingly floral, with possibly even a hint of jasmine, although I think I’m getting that less so this go-around. I really want to get that bitterness out of the cup, because I really want to love this tea. I guess the steeping temp is the next thing to adjust!

Do you like iced tea? This one seems like a good candidate for a cold brewed iced tea. 2 tsp of leaves for 8 oz of water (I usually do 4 c water 8 tsp tea). Stick in refrigerator for at least 8 hours, strain and sweeten to liking. I have some mango tea that I can’t seem to get the bitterness out of, and the cold brew really helped (plus the mango flavor is so refreshing!).

I haven’t typically been a fan of iced tea, but then again I haven’t really tried flavored iced tea. I think I would like it. Thanks for the tip, I definitely will try this iced!

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
