When I brewed it for the first time, it was a little bitter. Then I tried making it iced with a little bit of agave and it was delicious.

Not being a huge fan of black tea blends I was hesitant to try this one at first but given my recent experience with some awesome blends from 52teas I was feeling brave. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed and found that this was a nice refreshing break from all the spice based teas I have been enjoying lately – not that there is anything wrong with spice teas. :) Personally I found that the mango flavor really shone thru and I could not help but be reminded of one of my favorite Oolong blends also from DavidsTea – Happy Kombucha. This blend is sweeter (even without sweetener) which works wonderfully given the stronger black tea base. The pomegranate flavor has a presence as well but is more of a supporting flavor that you end up saying, “there is something else in this blend – oh right its pomegranate!” So in a nutshell, if you like mango, you will like this tea. If you like Happy Kombucha, you will LOVE this tea.
Wow, I drank way too much caffeine today. I have the jitters. Hope I don’t have trouble getting to sleep tonight…
I got a 5 gram sample of this tea in with my most recent order from DAVIDs TEA. This isn’t something I would normally purchase since it’s black tea (black tea can be harsh on my stomach so I therefore rarely drink it) but since it wasn’t a pure black tea I decided to give it a try.
I steeped the entire 5 gram sample in 1 mug of 200 degree F water for 3.5 minutes then put the mug in the freezer for an hour to cool it off so that way the tea would be “iced”. The tea tasted like mangoes (with only a slightly artificial taste to it) with the base of black tea (glad I only steeped it for 3.5 min because it was on the cusp of going bitter). Overall a nice summer tea to try out iced. However, as mentioned, due to the fact that it is black tea (and the fact that I prefer my iced teas to be herbal) I will not be purchasing this one. I’m glad I tried it out though!
Before picking up this tea in-store, I reviewed the notes left by other reviewers who seem to really like it. So, I picked up a free sample of 25g with a David’s Tea promotion for the release of the new Summer Collection. It was pretty good. I had it iced. The mango comes through loud and clear. But I think I would like it better as a herbal tea, rather than as a black. I still need to try the Guava Cadabra which may be more to my liking.
All in all, it is a good tea, but not my favourite. Enjoyable, but definitely not an essential tea for me. I don’t think I will pick up any more, but I am glad that I had the chance to try it.
Initially very excited to try this tea; it smelled wonderful and had a decent review.
First impression was orange, but there was something else I couldn’t quite place. Further into the cup I realized it tasted exactly like the smell of The Body Shop’s mango products. Very mango-y, but artificially so. Just couldn’t get over the fact that it felt like I was drinking body wash. Happy to say I don’t have any of this left.
This smelled really good while steeping..really fruity. But when I went to drink it, it totally turned on me! It was like a citrus hell. D:
Tasted some other fruity notes in the background, but I couldn’t deal with the citrus long enough to pick out what they were. I seriously do not handle citrus well…like at all. xD
i took about three sips and then I had to dump it. Oy. Not for me!!
Thanks for the sample though, EmilyGee! You definitely saved me money on this one!
