Another delicious tea that left after spring! I really hope they bring it back next year.

Put some spring in your step
This may have been a long, cold winter, but this exotic fruit-filled black tea is a sure sign of sunnier days ahead. Bursting with fruity pomegranate seeds and big, luscious pieces of mango, it’s like a cross between your favourite breakfast tea and the best juice ever. And since spring weather can still be a bit unpredictable, you’ll be happy to know it’s equally amazing hot or iced. One cup and you’ll feel like dancing for joy.

Just got this one as a sample from David’s Tea!
The smell of the leaves is just like mango, but I don’t smell much pomegranate in there. Smells fantastic.
The brew is a medium yellow colour, not very dark – and smells just as the dry leaves do!
The tea tastes a little bit weaker than it smells, but overall it’s pretty good. I don’t usually drink mango/tropical flavoured teas, but this one isn’t too shabby!
My buddy Ellyn and I dropped by David’s for the new Spring Line…and this one smelled delicious! Being a mango fan it got my attention, and I do indeed really like it. My concern is that it also has listed artificial flavors. Being a snob, of course to artificial things in my tea, this unsettles me a bit, and saddens me as well. The salesman went on about vanilla being an artificial flavoring….which sounded like marketing training to me…but I will be more vigilant to artificial flavorings in the future!
Well, the Easter bunny came early this year and brought me the Spring collection! When I found it sitting on my bed, I immediately opened it and smelled all of the teas. This was the first one that I decided to try. The smell is really fruity and I found that the mango really dominated this tea over the pomegranate (this was a little disapointing as mango and pomegranate are 2 of my favourite fruits so I was hoping to taste them both in this tea). This tea however, is more sour than the other teas that they have with mango in them such as Mango Madness and even Mango Diablo; I attributed that to the pomegranate. Overall, this was a nice steep and I will be going back to it from time to time.
I bought this tea yesterday, the same day it was released, and I couldn’t wait to drink a cup this morning. The first thing I noticed when I steeped it was its smell. God, what a smell! The tea is flavorful and the fruity tastes stays for a while in my mouth after I finish it. That’s nice! The only thing is that it leaves my a bit thirsty. But hey, it’s so worth! :)
Update: I drank this tea at work and it’s been a couple hours since I’ve finished it but the peach jujubes smell of this tea keeps floating in the air all around my office. I would sooooo eat that smell.
I didn’t have many expectations for this tea, I figured, hey, it’s a black fruit tea. Nothing amazing right? Thankfully my assumptions proved to be in error, because this tea really surprised me in a good way! The second I opened the bag my nose was bombarded with a tidal wave of juicy, lush mango. OH oh oh. So intoxicating!
Upon the first sip (after steeping for about 5 minutes) all I could taste is the mango. Bright, tropical, lush mango. I was anticipating some pomegranate but, nope. However, I decided that was perfectly fine, after all, because who can resist mango?!?
I finished about 1/4 of the cup while it still was hot, then stuck it in the fridge because having a cold jar of tea sounded so enticing and refreshing. And it was! Sweet, icy, with pops of fruity mango. Almost as good as the actual fruit.
And then, a few minutes into my glass of iced tea, I noticed I had a little bit of raspberry wine in a bottle left over from a girl’s night the weekend prior. Raspberry and mango? Why the heck not? Into the mason jar went the wine. Wow. Things just went from really good to really, really great. This is a win-win all around. Hot, iced, or mixed with another beverage, Pom Tango pretty much rocks. I seriously cannot think of one good reason anyone shouldn’t buy this tea.
When I first opened the bag i was immediately and pleasantly overtaken by the scent of ripe mango.
The fruit appeared to represent the bulk of the dry material. I prepared the tea as per the package instructions using my mug with a stainless steel infuser.
The aroma from the liquor was dominated by the mango. It was so pleasant that felt I compelled to abandon my analyses in favor of uncritical imbibing – but I persisted.
I tasted the medium brownish liquor every 30sec throughout the 4-7min recommended steep time – opting for 6 min. where it seemed to my taste that the maximum fruit flavor without significant tea bitterness was attained (tea was spent at that time).
The mango flavor dominated the flavor profile and persisted well into the aftertaste. I’m beginning to understand the flavors of pomegranite now and I think its tartness modulated the sweetness of the mango without obviously declaring its presence.
The fruit flavors and the tea base were very nicely balanced thereby producing a very pleasant beverage. The aroma of the liquor and its taste seemed tell the same unified story which I enjoyed very much. This is the mango lavored that I expect to restock.
