From DAVIDsTEA

Go crazy
One sip of this tea and you’ll do anything to get your hands on more. In fact, we’re a bit worried about letting people get a taste. There might be riots. Looting. Traffic jams. It’s a lot of responsibility! But who can blame you for going crazy over this delicious white tea? It’s fruity. It’s refreshing. It tastes just like a ripe piece of mango. In short, it’s total madness.

Ingredients:
Apple pieces, white Bai Mu Dan tea, orange peel, pineapple cubes, mango cubes, mango, pineapple, orange slices, freeze dried tangerine pieces, safflower petals, freeze dried strawberry pieces, marigold blossoms, artificial flavouring.

What a difference water temperature makes! This tea was already one enjoyed, with a whole pile of different flavours going on, but with a cooler water temp the mango really, really began to shine through.

This became far more the super mango tea I had always been imagining when I picked it and Mango Fruit Punch up, without the bitter citrus note Mango Fruit Punch offers if you don’t brew it exactly right.

I have the adorable Taryn to thank for sending me a this yummy tea. I cold steeped this lovely for two hours and it made for a very refreshing treat. This tea smells like sweet, ripe mangos dry. At first sip, I get a wonderful mango flavor that moves into a clean white tea with citrus tones. The finish is sweet and fruity. I’ve had some bad luck with bitter white teas lately, but I’m happy to report that this white is not the slightest bit bitter when cold steeped.

What is it with mango blends obscuring the tea leaf? This is my second mango tea where I can hardly see tea in the dry blend (the other was Teavana’s Mango Oolong Chai where you couldn’t find the actual tea with two free hands and a flashlight). Despite this, I can taste the tea even though I know from others’ notes they cannot. It’s not so much that I can taste it, more like I feel it. You know, the tannins in your mouth when you rub your tongue on the top back of your front teeth — if you have them :)

But let’s get back to the task at hand.

Dry leaf nose is tropical. I can’t really vouch for mango smell because it married all the other smells while in the bag, but it’s tropical alright. Brews a mango flavoured friendly yellow liquor.

I am not doing backflips over this one, maybe I put too much ice. Will revisit. It is a pleasant iced beverage to have though.

20 minutes later 2nd steep! I went for it not expecting much. Really hot water and without a timer because I wanted to forget it. It’s been maybe 15 minutes. Still flavourful. Skipped the ice on resteep. I thought warm mango juice would be a turn off but no. :) you can even try a third steep I bet, because of the large chunks of fruit and peel in there.

it’s okay.
i think i’m just not a white tea gal yet. i’m sure i’ll get there someday.
(like growing from liking only wheat beers, to eventually liking sour ales)

When I bought my sample of Mango Diablo, I decided to revisit this one so I had a non-chili version to follow up with. The man of the house made it last night but I ended up drifting off on the couch before I could drink it and was barely with it enough to throw my mug in the fridge on my way to bed. So, I had a nice iced version waiting for me this morning. I’m typically too lazy to hot-brew-then-ice teas; it’s either consumed hot or cold-steeped.

It’s very in-your-face sweet, ripe mango. I see (and steep) this one as a fruit blend because any tea aspect in it is totally negligible. It’s good, and I’m convinced by the mango, and it’s nice cold. But, it’s not stellar for me. Solid but not stellar.

Had a cup of this in-store before work. We have some in the stash, but I’ve never reached for it before.

I know that white teas pop to their best effect with a steep time of less than a minute, but because I got caught up chatting with the girl at DT, I ended up steeping this for almost seven minutes (eep!). The result was delicious! But not really tea-y. The taste of the tea – which is, itself, very delicate – was totally subsumed in the mango, but the mango was very bright and sweet and citrusy and delicious.

While I enjoyed the cup, I have to say that for the price, it isn’t worth it. There is very little white tea in proportion to the fruit and other additives (which themselves are very heavy), but it’s still being charged the price for a white tea.

This one smells so deliciously fruity. But nothing like mango. More like citrus. Some of these fruity teas I’m sure are better on ice. This one almost looks like it should be a herbal there’s so much fruit and almost no white tea leaves.

There’s a lovely sweetness at the end of the sip but I’m still not sure I’m getting any mango. The more I drink the more I don’t think this is a tea for me. I’ll have to chill it before I throw in the towel.

1st smell: Fruity, but not sickingly fruity.
1st taste: Mango-ish. Can’t decide if it tastes like true mangos or not though. Been years since I’ve had the fruit.
All in all: While I enjoyed this tea alot more then the last tea (I reviewed this evening.) and would be pleased to get a 50 g bag as a gift, for the price…at $10 that’s just a wee bit steep for me. And considering my current trouble in buying from DT’s non issue.
1 last comment: I am definitely seeing why some people are comparing DT’s to Teavana’s….yes I am still a Teavana fan;) I just find it interesting that DT’s is overloading their stock with bits of fruit like Teavana’s. Not a bad thing or good thing…just commentary.

I have to say that I’m generally not the biggest fan of DT’s white blends. The prices are jacked, and they are full of fruit, and rarely have any white tea flavour. Butiki and other blenders, who may use more flavourings in tea than pieces of real fruit (keep in mind that DT also uses flavouring as well as fruit chunks), achieve much better flavoured whites at reasonable prices.

That said, I liked this tea, but not at that sort of price!

This tea is excellent. It’s more orange-peachy than mango, really, but oh so tasty. A bit dry and not overly sweet. Downsides: big chunks of fruit so it’s one of those ‘watch what you’re steeping’ teas so you can balance the flavours and it’s also gonna run out SOON because of those big chunks (2tsp/steep). Awww. :(

(ETA: This resteeped really well! 9mins, same temp.)

Had this baby iced this morning. The scent from the bag is freakin’ splendid. So much mango.
I was a little disappointed to see so little tea in the base.
So I scooped out some scoops that had lots of tea & then threw in a few chuncks of the fruit.
It’s so mango-ey, like eating a real juicy mango. It did lack the white tea base flavour (which is fine by me), but I did pay the white tea price so I would have enjoyed a bit more white tea in it.
