Spicy. Mango… … …
Yep, that is all. No “tea”. Just overly spicy mango.
If you like a serious punch in your food, then this one might be for you.
However, the sample I had… it was so spicy that I couldn’t enjoy the other parts of the flavour. I like some spiciness in my food. In fact, I love me some jerk chicken or Tikka Masala. But those dishes are not ALL about the spicy. They have texture and other flavours.
Seriously, I think this should be labelled a tisane. Was there any camellia in there at all???
It might be interesting to cook with.

Oh boo. I have high hopes for this. I can’t wait for Wednesday to buy all the teas I’m behind on! Mango Diablo, the whole summer collection (minus Swampwater), Buddha’s Blend, Mamma Mia…

The devil mango is going to get you little girl. It will come in the night…wah ha ha….with spicy daggers in the stomach. Because for less money you could have bought dried mango, chopped it up, added hot pepper and put it in a bag. Wah hahahaha!

Daniel Scott

Sounds like I’m gonna like it. :P

Kristeleyn: beware of the mango! but I recommend trying it anyhow. I could never resist a tea no matter how horrible it’s said to possibly be :P
Bonnie: ahhhh haunted by the mango!! yes, I really could have made this myself and it would have probably tasted better :/
Daniel Scott: go for it! I look forward to that review :)

Mirandab

Really? I didnt detect any heat at all at first, in fact I usually add my own chilly flakes!

Indigobloom

Hmm maybe it was just a strong batch that I tried

Kittenna

I got heat in mine too. Really didn’t like this tea though.

Indigobloom

Odd how some people got a really spicy cup and others not so much!

TeaBrat

I think I can pass on this. :-P

Indigobloom

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
