Eh. It’s decent. Vaguely fruity-flavored tea.
I don’t have any milk so it’s giving me an excuse to sipdown my fruity Adagios.
An ancient Hindu legend recounts the story of the mango tree growing from the ashes of the sun princess who had been incinerated by an evil sorceress. When the mango ripened and fell to the ground, the beautiful sun princess emerged. The bestselling Mango Tea combines the taste of Ceylon tea with the flavor of perfectly ripened mangoes. Sun princess sold separately.
Brew at 212 °F for 5 minutes.
Easy iced tea this morning, bought these in the pouches for convenience.
I was pleasantly surprised that I got a total 2 quarts of tea out of one bag! Steeped in a mason jar for 5 minutes with 16 oz of water, then moved the bag over to another mason jar and did the same. Added cold water and stuck ’em in the fridge. No sugar added right now, I prefer to go the simple syrup route so everyone can add their own amounts.
Both brewed up a nice dark amber color with a nice light sweet mango smell. The taste is nice, nothing too extraordinary but a really good everyday iced tea that pleases a wide audience. The mango is light and sweet and allows the black base to still shine through. Yum. :)
In light of advice about Adagio black teas from I don’t even know where, possibly someone’s tasting note? I brewed this at a lower temperature than I normally would a black, only 190. I’m happy to report that this is not bitter in the least and had a pleasing mango taste. I didn’t put a lot of my focus into drinking this tea, was working, but I drank it all in a much shorter period of time than normal and it was gone before I knew it. I have a tiny bit left, I shared my pot with a coworker and his mug is smaller than mine and I make enough for 2 of my mugs, so I have a bit left, but I’m always unsure how to sugar and milk that small amount of tea so I’ll probably just be drinking it plain. When it finishes cooling off anyway, I had the heater on my Breville on so it’s still quite warm.
Work is going better today, got one task completed and I’ll start the next task (of the 3 major ones on my plate) later today and probably tomorrow too. I’m trying to convince one of my coworker friends to drive with me as a carpool for the next 2 weeks because we have a holiday in that pay period and some of the van needs to go to 8 hour days, which I hate. 10 hour days is better, but those aren’t allowed anymore so 9 is my usual.
I’d also like to report that my Avengers fanfiction obsession has gotten out of hand and I didn’t even eat a whole meal yesterday, partly because of it. C’est la vie, I guess.
This was a nice blend of fruit and black with the mango taste sweetening up the black tea naturally. It was also fresh tasting and over all it was nice but not ground breaking. Suitable for everyday use rather than for special occasions.
I had forgotten I have this tea until I browsed my Adagio collection for something fruity to quench my thirst. A black based fruit tea is always perfect for making iced tea with and this would make a particularly scrumptious one. Juicy and sweet mango with rich and smooth black tea, not a strong mixture but freshing and tasty non the less.
The deliciously sweet flavor of mango comes through with the signature bold flavor that is black tea. I found this tea to be very enjoyable and similar to peach zinger in many ways. I recommend this tea for tea drinkers who enjoy fruit flavors mixed with their dark tea.
Boy, I love mango!!!
Boil the water for 212 (for black tea) and steep for 5 min. It has a black tea background with an up front mango taste. Kind of sweet to the pallet and soothing.
I made a pot of this and then chilled it using half the sample I got from Caligatia. I definitely oversteeped it—I think I did a five minute steep, if I recall correctly, so the tea is bitter. Even with the bitterness, though I do get hints of mango on the drink, which I’m pleased about, so I didn’t completely ruin the tea.
I like my flavored blacks from Adagio with a touch of sugar and a touch of milk, and this steeping has the same. I’m not getting much mango flavor (perhaps I’ve overwhelmed it), and with this use, the Ceylon is a perfectly fine black tea, but “nothing special”. I’d rather have Irish Breakfast or Golden Monkey.
Steeped 2 tsp @ 208º for 5 minutes. Wonderful flavors with a mango aroma. Very well balanced black.
1.5 tsps. @ 208º for 5 minutes. Seems I have oversteeped this time around. Getting a lot of bitterness from the leaves that’s hiding the sweetness of the mango. Perhaps, though, this tea is just a bit stronger than I expected.
Stepped down to 1 tsp @ 205º for exactly 5 minutes. I’ve been oversteeping this one lately and using too much tea. This time around the tea is really showing its flavors well and the bitterness I’ve been experiencing is nearly absent.
Pretty nice but not as potent as I’d have liked. I think this would do well as an iced tea
I received this tea in the sampler package and I have to say it is quite pleasant. I brewed it at 212 degrees for 3 min and poured it over ice. It made a great iced tea. I could taste the mango and it wasn’t artificial to me and the mango did not overpower the tea. Don’t know if I’ll ever drink this hot but love it iced.
Sarah – surprisingly good. Best with sugar. Rating: 80
Out of all of Adagio’s “flavored series” tea’s Mango is so far my favorite… Unfortunately I just don’t think I will ever get used to Ceylon’s bold flavor. Adagio could introduce a bit of variety.
Got the flavored tea sampler from Adagio and use these as little “enhancers” in many of my green teas. I put a 1/2 teaspoon of this in with my Body + Mind by Teavana (2tsp to 16 oz) and it REALLY added a sweet zest to an otherwise light tasting tea, but, didn’t overpower it
I received this tea expecting great things. I opened the tin and was immediately drawn in by the amazing smell…
I steeped at boiling point for 5 minutes the first time around and I got a VERY bitter taste from it, which I thought was very odd and off-putting.
The second time around I steeped at boiling point for 3 minutes and the results were much better but still a little off for my liking…
To close, I like the tea but was expecting more from it.
this one is fun. i got it in a sampler package. this was the 1 i was more hesitant to try but im glad i did. its an excellent summery tea
I like mango tea alot! I love to eat them and the tea, when done right, is just a mango in a cup. yum!
I bought this mainly for iced tea, but my overall tea stash is dangerously low so I’ve been taking it hot. Really nice for a fruity tea—not fake or cloying.
Love this one… The sweetness of the mango really takes the edge off the black tea. Do not oversteep, otherwise it gets too bitter. Great mango taste—you can tell it’s mango and not just “some tropical or citrus fruit.”
I really enjoy this tea. With its solid mango flavor, it may be the best “fruity” black that I’ve had. Might try a second steep just to see what happens…
Resteeped, 5 minutes. Holds up surprisingly well. Still mango-ey enough to balance the black. A little bitter, but glad to know I can get an extra good cup out of these leaves.
I got this tea with my shipment of 16 other teas from Adagio. A really nice Mango blend – although personally, I prefer their Green Mango tea.
