I was pleased to see yet another tea I haven’t tried before in this calendar. I do like mango, but haven’t really found a tea version that I love… to be honest, I like the actual fruit much more than mango flavored things. I’m actually smelling more citrus than mango once the tea has steeped and it’s on the verge of being medicinal, too. Eh.
Sipping… hm, I was expecting this to be much more bitter, but it’s surprisingly smooth and thick on the tongue. I taste a bit of the white tea base… plain, slightly like hay and maybe a tiny bit fruity. I also taste orange and mango, but it is on the artificial side and it reminds me a lot of liquid Motrin. I’m disappointed because the mouthfeel is quite nice.. but it’s just too artificial and strange for me.
