drank Decaf Mango by Adagio Teas
11 tasting notes

The mango is there, but it’s over-powered by what smells and tastes like vanilla (which is not on the list of ingredients, so I’m not sure where it’s coming from). Unfortunately, I strongly dislike any hint of vanilla in my tea. It’s otherwise probably a decent blend. I’m giving it a lower rating for simply not accounting for the vanilla in the ingredients or description.

Republic of Tea’s Mango Ceylon (regular or decaf) remains in first place as my favorite Mango (by a huge margin!). Interestingly, the list of ingredients is identical.

Profile

Bio

I spent some time in the south (U.S.) many years ago where I developed a fondness for Southern Sweet Tea (if you’ve never had it, imagine iced tea as sweet as kool-aid and you might be close!). I’ve also liked the occasional cup of hot, but never got into a regular habit.

During a trip to New York last year that involved staying in a high-end hotel, I discovered Tea Forte’s English Breakfast and had the revelation that not all tea is created equal. I’ve since become a bit obsessed with both learning about tea varieties and proper preparation. And now, a year or so later, I have a variable temp electric teapot, sneak new tea into the cupboard when my husband isn’t looking, use the word “tisane” in everyday conversation, and just completed my first (and very successful!) tea swap!
