Good when iced, but it tastes too much fake.

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.

Do I ever love the mango in this tea. It’s super prominent (I’d really hope so, due to the name) and a brilliant orange in color. This has been my go-to studying tea for a while now, and unfortunately due to that reason I am completely out. I’ll have to make a trip up to refill my tin, as this is really a tea worth having in the cupboard, in my opinion.
My second review yaay! The tea I decided to make from my starter kit is Mango Madness a white tea. It smells delicious! It smells like mango and orange and very citrusy. It smelt amazing so I was guessing it would taste amazing. I was semi right on that part. My first sip was citrus filled with not many other flavors coming through. I still very much enjoyed the tea but wish it had more layered flavors. Maybe next time I’ll steep it for 5 minutes instead of 7.
I was excited for this one. Sweet fruit + tea? What could go wrong?
The scent is great, heavy on the mangoes and it screams “I’m going to be delicious!” Steeped however . . .
It’s vile. Chemical-ly, doesn’t taste like fruit at all, bitter, nasty tea. Not what I was expecting at all. So disappointed by this one.
The first thing I noticed about this tea is its sweetness! It’s sooo sweet. Probably from all the mango, apple and pineapple! There is an after taste that is kind of astringent, blech.
The base is a white Chinese tea (Bai Mu Dan), but its appearance and taste is more of a green tea. There are tons of fruits in it, so it is very exotic, but the trade-off is all the sediment at the bottom.
Overall, I am #notafan of the sediment and the astringent after-taste, but it is so sweet, and exotic, even I admit that it would be good iced ;)
Day #8 of the advent calendar (so it’s a couple of days late…). I really like this blend (as I do love my fruit)! My only hesitation from buying it again is the price (curse you, white teas, for being so bloody expensive). This is one I will re-steep, and I actually laced it with leftover Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait this time.
Another little tin from the Sweet Indulgences set.
A lot of fruit in this blend. Not sure exactly what the fruit pieces are, but I’m guessing some dried mango is in there. (Just looked up the ingredients, and apparently there is apple and pineapple, too! Well, whatever fruit there was, there was one piece that was bigger than a quarter. Pretty impressive.)
Despite all that fruit, the tea base actually came through in the cup, creating a nice balance to the light fruit juice style flavors that were dominant. To me, it tasted like a watery version of mango juice, which is not a bad thing at all. Hot, this tea had a hint of tartness that completely disappeared once it cooled down to room temperature. Sweet without any added sugar.
Shared a pot with my mom today! Delicious! Stronger then the first time I made it, added a bit of sugar for extra deliciousness. Really need that agave nectar :D. Resteeped it an hour later and it was also delicious, didn’t feel the need to add any suger for round 2.
