New tea #3! Picked this up on Monday because it just smelled too good to not get. I only got 15 g however, and the mango pieces are pretty weighty, so there’s not a whole lot left in my bag. Ah well, enough for 2 or 3 cups.

The dry smell is so much mango! I don’t smell very much pomegranate, will have to see if it comes out in the flavor. I steeped for about 3 minutes, a bit shorter as this is a black tea and I tend to prefer shorter steeps. But there was mostly mango in my infuser lol, so it might be more fruity than black tea anyways. Steeped it smells sooooo juicy! Almost entirely mango again, there might not be a whole lot of pom in this tea, maybe I just didn’t get too many in my bag this time around.

So this is a very good fruity black! Very mango and fresh! I think there might be a tiny bit of pomegranate flavour, but mostly pure, juicy mango. There is not a lot of black tea taste either, but it does make a nice base for the punch of mango I think! Yum this is pretty good, I wish it was sunny here today because this screams spring leading into summer! It is a bit similar in flavor to Green & Fruity, but more mango and no rooibos adding in its own flavor. This would be a nice morning tea with the black tea kick of caffeine. Oh, and I am also trying my first attempt at cold brewing! With the leaves of this tea that were left over! I hope it goes good, I put it in a filter bag in my biggest mug in the fridge, with my perfect mug lid on it, I’m not sure if a lid is required, but since I don’t have a glass jar I hope this will work!

Overall, this is a pretty good fruity black tea. If you are into fruity black teas, you MUST get this, as it is excellent. I think the slight pom taste is coming out a bit more as it cools too. I will try to remember to update with how the cold brew turns out (if it is good haha).

ETA about cold brew – I let this cold brew for over 12 hrs, probably around 18? It wasn’t bad, but a bit weak, probably did not have enough tea leaves. The tea bag worked well though, I am going to use cold brewing to use up a bunch of the 100 pack of my teabags from Davidstea. Can’t wait to do more of these!!

I really enjoyed this one! My 15g didn’t last very long so I went and grabbed 30 more! (Better to buy too little and have to go more than buy too much…)

Mmm it is pretty tasty! I must not have gotten many pom seeds in this batch though, it’s pretty much pure mango, which I’m ok with :) I am also trying my first cold brew with the leftover leaves! I hope it turns out!

Porn tango and porn seeds – just two of the many reasons why I need to start wearing reading glasses…

MissLena

LOL now that would be one awkward tea…hahaha, that kind of made my day. :D

Nothing quenches your thirst like Porn Tango.

ashmanra

Well, the Tango is pretty racy!

MissLena

Lolol oh dear haha, it is a bit promiscuous… the tango, not the tea

For cold-brewing, there’s no need to use a teabag – you can just let the leaves roam free in the water, and then strain the tea through an infuser basket, if you have one :)

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
