This is the tea I was most excited about in my Beastly Beverages order, and thus why I’m having it as soon as I can (read: when caffeine will keep me pleasantly awake instead of tossing-and-turning awake). Mango, pineapple, chili? YES!

Parsing out the tea was an interesting experience: a huge piece of mango was in the middle of the brew, one longer than my hand. Yea, I have small hands. Still.

I only brewed this for two minutes, and wish I’d given it a bit more time. It’s a bit thin, the whole thing – other than the mango. That’s present and lovely and really authentic – as evidenced by the dried mango, of course. However the base is thin, the chili only peeks out momentarily, and there’s definitely something granular in the brew – almost as if the fruit pieces had disintegrated.

I’ll try again, hopefully with a bit more fleshing out and fullness.

1.5 tsp in 12oz.

I am sorry it is not as good as you would have hoped. It certainly sounded like an interesting tea. Plus it is inspired by Supernatural which makes it all the more appealing.


Agreed! I’ll brew it longer next time to see what changes. The mango really is bang-on though. I have tons to play with… and can of course send you some, to save you finding out with the huge order requirement, if you’d like.


100 g really is a large quantity to order but I might give in eventually as some of the blends do sound great. I shall continue to watch your notes to see your thoughts on the company.

this comes from missB i brewed it without looking at tasting notes and for me this was apricot chili. No mango or pineapple but a delicious apricot chili tea. In reading notes, i see it’s supposed to be mango pineapple so i should take points off for it being not the right taste for me but it’s tasty. It’s not super chili…just enough to have a bite to it while still letting the fruit taste come through. Really enjoyed this one today for something a little different!

Additional notes: Sipping this one again basically because someone is back on Supernatural! Though I haven’t caught up with this weeks episode yet! I love that it’s fruity and cayenne spicy like a chutney but this one doesn’t have enough for Lucifer. I like that they brought Lucifer back, but it might seem like they’re trying to go back to season five. This show can do anything though and I’ll keep watching. :D

Thanks to MissB for this tea! The flavour combination of pineapple, mango, and chili is totally up my alley, and the mango chunks especially caught my eye. But somehow, I barely taste any of these notes in here. Just a hint of generic fruity sweetness but no chili heat or distinguishable mango or pineapple notes. Perhaps it’s an age thing? The base is nice and smooth, however.

I was feeling a bit adventurous so I broke out this unique tea sent to me by the awesome MissB (thank you!! ). As I readied myself for my first spicy sip, I was shocked to just get mango. Albeit an an amazing mango that is incredibly true to the sweet and luscious fruit, but where is the chili?! Every now and then I notice it at the back of my throat but it is faint and only noticeable because I am looking for it. For a tea named after Supernatural’s Lucifer, I was certainly expecting more heat. In fact, I was almost scared as to how spicy it would be but as it turns out, my fear was completely unwarranted as this is just like sipping on a delicious mango tea.

This is actually pretty good. Definitely chili and mango – there was a HUGE mango chunk in my sample from MissB that I needed to chop up for more even distribution. :)

The base isn’t too anything, which is nice. The mango sweetness and chili spice are readily apparent. I’m not getting a lot of pineapple, but there weren’t many pineapple pieces in my sample, at least compared to mango.

Thank you! This was a really interesting tea to try!

This has been sitting in my thermos all day, steadily getting spicier and spicier. I think I really like this! It’s good cold as well, so I could see making it as an iced tea.

suppose i should be glad MissB hasn’t redecorated… seeing as judging by her current batting average she is living inside my brain, lol!

this was quite awesome. another sketchily described black tea, but with divine curls of fruit that i thought were pieces of apricot? of course with no description it was only a guess. mango, pineapple…. and YUP chilli, definitely chilli as it cools!

nice and smooth. no astringency. lovely with a bit of cream and agave…. B….. no moving the furniture, are we clear? =0P thank you for the lovely sample!
