“The mango flavoring in this is so amazingly accurate to the fruit but something is drying and that takes away from the cup as a whole. Still, the mango is juicy and delicious so I am not too bothered.” Read full tasting note

Apparently the Alphonso mango is one of the sweetest and most expensive mangos. One that came about via grafting. You think your just drinking tea but you end up learning things too.
This teabreally is tasty. I’d like to try one of these mangos now. Its sweet but not so sweet that it’s too much. The base is very light. But that could also be due to the mango. I’ve had it both hot and cold and both are great.
Welp, that was fast. I’ve forgotten how fast I go through black teas when making cold brews (using about double the leaf), since I’ve figured out that I like green teas cold brewed at a more normal leaf-to-water ratio and I’ve been drinking a lot of cold brew green teas. But I started cold brewing this one and now it’s gone!
It was super delicious as a cold brew. I’ve found that many of Lupicia’s teas, especially the fruity black teas, make excellent cold brews, and in the future I may have to keep some of them around for only that purpose (if I ever run out of teas I want to “use up” by cold brewing). This would definitely be one to re-order. Mango-y and refreshing.
Instead of making it to the Lupicia directions (5g tea per 6 oz cup, srsly.), I just plunked it in my steeper with a random amount of water under 16oz. About 3-4 minutes later, tea!
It was pretty good, but it was in a travel mug. Not my favourite mango tea.
So far, my favourite Lupicia is Chaud les Marrons! because it was good hot, it was good in a travel mug, and it was good cold in the travel mug. Seriously on my list!
Thanks so much for sharing all these teas with me, Dinosara. :) I have more to try, but I’m really tired and might not be posting much until I’m over the most strenuous parts of physio!
