Honestly I was worried about this one. I have been burned more than once by mango/passion/floral green/white blends that clearly come from wholesalers. I love the idea of that combo, but it’s just really hard to get those flavors right, I guess. I couldn’t find this exact blend anywhere else, though, so I took a leap and ordered a sample.

It does remind me of a tea I’ve had before, but I can’t place it. Maybe it’s just that mango-candy smell that comes with fake mango flavored greens. There are definitely some rose and jasmine notes buried in there, but they’re not very prominent. Mostly it’s that sweet, mango candy flavor that I don’t mind because I love mango candy. Overall it’s a decently tasty fruity and lightly floral tea, though again one that is all flavoring and not much tea taste. I like it fine, but it’s not a rebuy.

MMmm.. Mango candy! Have you ever had the Mango Hi-Chews? If not, keep your eye out for them in China.. very tasty; might be up your alley.

bah humbug- I don’t know why my comments sometimes get repeated that way. Sorry for the clutter!

I love Hi-Chews! This does remind me of them, actually. I can’t wait to find all kinds of odd candy when I go to China… it’s one of my favorite things to do when I travel. :D

Ah, I so had to get a sample of this since I’ve discovered how candy-like Rose/Mango tea blends can be for me. This one’s very pleasant from the smell of the dry leaves all the way through the aftertaste. This is like the other, second “Frou” that’s missing from Teafrog’s 1001 Nights. This one’s bolder, but just as natural. I think that Tea Guys’ Mango Rose still holds the “NERDS!” record, but this tea’s making me reconsider a purchase of that particular Mango Rose. It’s because of the more natural, less harsh taste that I’m now leaning toward this tea as the one I’d keep cupboarded. NE

You know, reading this review made me realize that I have a Strawberry Cream green tea that I forgot to put on my web site. No wonder I haven’t sold any yet…

Rabs

LOL! Either you’re super-forgetful, or you love to bait us Steepsterites (I’m thinking a bit of both) Tea-hee! ;)

Perhaps I am a bit spacey…but I’m gonna admit it! There are just sooo many teas, it’s easy for them to fall through the cracks sometimes. Maybe if I were OCD that I wouldn’t have missed them….hrm. Maybe if I just hire someone OCD I wouldn’t have to worry about it!

AmazonV

i would take you up on the fast, ocd list maker right here, drat wrong state! oh well

That would be awesome! Oh, well. I figure when we get big enough, I’m going to need some shipping warehouses in other parts of the country somewhere….I’m sure there will be openings, heh.

AmazonV

at least someone likes lists! i get mocked (lovingly) by my family a lot for listing everything, vacation itineraries, contents of boxes when packing, p-touch labeling everything i get my paws on….

hey Rabs, have you ever tried to make nerds tea? i wonder, black tea and a box of nerds….mmm NERDS hehe

Rabs

AmazonV: I enjoy lists, but don’t use them as often as I should. ;)

Also, I have to admit that I did drink the last bit of the second steep with the remaining Nerds I had when I went to Toy Story 3. It. Was. AWESOME! They actually paired really really well. I had thought that the Nerds would take away from the tea, but oh no. I could get addicted to that combo. And put on a bazillion pounds. ;)

AmazonV

Oh that sounds delicious, currently my candy drawer only contains strawberry tastykakes though :(

Not sure why but this sort of smells like Pineapple. It’s a pleasant scent so I don’t mind. The dry loose leaf mixture swells quite a bit when wet. There is a little murkiness to the after-steep.

The taste is nice and even and thirst quenching and sweet even. Yup! It’s fairly juicy. I like this one the more I drink it. I’m glad there is no grassy aftertaste…or bitter aftertaste. It tastes the same from the beginning to the end of the sip.
