From Design a Tea

A Green tea blend called SENCHA FINE from Japan with all natural Vanilla & Mango flavoring. Think of swinging ever so gently on a canvas hammock, one leg draped off the side. A warm breeze blowing across the lagoon of an exotic island with the smell of mango in the air, as you sip away your worries…

This is the very first time trying a tea from this company, and I’m liking it a lot. It brews to a beautiful, pale green color. It smells rather unusual, I can smell a vanilla note and a fruit note, but there is also a very strong… almost baked kind of aroma to the cup. Almost like cookies. It doesn’t smell like a typical tropical blend, that’s for sure. Nevertheless, it does smell delicious in its own way and it is a very intriguing sort of fragrance…

The vanilla flavor is strong here, very creamy and sweet tasting… The mango also holds its own in the blend. The green tea offers a light, fresh taste to the mix, I’m not getting a lot of what I would call grassy flavor but there is some vegetative characteristics to the cup. The combination of the vanilla, mango and Sencha is a very tasty one, indeed.

This is really good.

Hmmm…I may add this to my shopping list….


Lori – I just got finished writing a review of this tea for the SororiTEA Sisters blog, it will publish on July 2. :)

The sencha base works well with the mango and vanilla flavors. Everything is sweet but not candy-like. It’s light from start to finish but super tasty.

A solid sencha, if a bit on the bitter side for me. Did I steep it too long, ever-so-slightly? Hm. Perhaps. I’m getting little mango – perhaps due to the overly mango tea I had earlier today, which may skew my tasting – and only a faint creaminess. The bitterness is what’s most apparent, sadly.

This is the first time I’ve ordered from Design-A-Tea, and I was impressed with how quickly it got to me. Sadly however, all of the samples I also ordered somehow got mixed up in the process, and I only got this tea. I’ll have to try again soon, and make sure that the samples go through.

2 tsp in 12 oz.

A nice, solid Sencha – clean and satisfying with subtle vanilla and mango undertones! I’m not sure where this one was hiding but I am darned happy I located it!!!! YUM!!!!

I’ve had this one a few times, and I think the more I drink it, the less enamored I become with it. The flavors are nice, but they aren’t particularly distinct. Actually I searched for ‘Tropical Green’ because I couldn’t remember the name of this tea. I wish that Mango came through more cleanly. It’s mango season and I’m just craving a good mango, if only I could figure out where to buy the Philippine ones!! It IS a nice tea, and one that I don’t mind coming back to, but when dry or brewed it doesn’t particularly scream MANGO or VANILLA to me. You kind of have to know what to look for, and even then… I think this is a tea I’ll have to sit down and have a serious brewing session with, it’s not living up to what is claiming to be, but I think that might mostly be me and how many times this ends up being a thermos tea from living in the kitchen cupboard and not with the other sit-down teas.

Oh hey, this is pretty good! Thanks for sharing, MissB!

It’s vanilla-fruit green tea. I was hesitant because I don’t often reach for green teas, but I really like the flavours. It probably won’t give me quite the caffeine kick I’m looking for, but it’s really nice at brunch. :)
