We are starting to get some hot weather here on the west coast which seems like a good excuse to make some iced tea… I picked this one up at DavidsTea because it smelled so good! Taking a closer look at the tea – in addition to the white tea leaves and the headlining mango, there is definitely a noticeable amount of orange (peel and “slices”) and pineapple. I steeped this tea for six minutes and, while it was cooling, added about two teaspoons of sugar, then poured over ice. The smell of the tea (while hot) instantly reminded me of hot apple cider and, to a lesser extent, fuzzy peaches. The taste (once cool) was that of pineapple and oranges… not much mango. That said, the tea was good, on par with many of the other iced teas that I have had this summer. I would’t have a problem drinking this tea again and it was quite refreshing on a hot evening.
