This has been my week for trying Rooibos Adagio teas. I recently bought the Rooibos sampler from Amazon (gift card), and I’ve been making a point this week of trying one each day. I have yet to review the vanilla, which I tried yesterday, but I feel more compelled to write a review on this.
Now I love mangos. I love mango ice cream, mango smoothies, this Indian mango chicken curry that I used to have all the time at this restaurant in Cambridge when I spent the majority of my summer there – but I have to say, I was not thrilled with this tea. Which was a bit of a disappointment.
There really wasn’t much of a mango flavor to the tea, and honestly I wasn’t to thrilled with the overall flavor, and I normally like rooibos. (I tend to be a chai, black, and rooibos type of girl). Most the time I spent drinking it felt more of an obligation to finish the pot of tea I brewed, and I found myself thinking fondly of one of the teas I had earlier this week, which I will probably brew up shortly now that I finished this pot. I don’t think I’m gonna even go for a second seep of the mix I used.
Who knows, maybe if I have someone over for tea, they’ll like it better. But for now, this is not a tea for me.
