Backlog:

Indie Tea is one of my favorite tea purveyors because they offer some very unique blends in a very fun format – the packaging is fun and the names of the teas are fun! It’s just a fun company!

A yummy tropical blend. I’m glad that the hibiscus was not overdone, in fact, the only place I really noticed it’s presence was in the color of the tea which brewed up to a very pale pink. (VERY pale!)

The mango and coconut do not overpower the white tea (and neither does the hibiscus.) Everything is soft and in keeping with the delicateness of the white tea. A soft, earthy quality and a hay-like vegetation, with notes of coconut and mango. Really tasty!

Hmm, perhaps I understeeped this one. In spite of the big pieces of mango and coconut, I didn’t get much beyond a general hay-flavour of the white tea, which wasn’t as tasty as I was hoping either. I’ll give it another shot, but currently not too impressed… and I had high hopes for this one!

ETA: :( Second infusion primarily tastes like hibiscus, though it’s quite a tame level of it. I remain disappointed.

This tea had a well-balanced flavor profile. You can taste each of the ingredients – the white tea, the mango, the coconut flakes, and the hibiscus flowers. There is a slight sweetness to the tea but the tartness from the mango and hibiscus are more dominant.
