“You know, with a bit less steeping some of the fruit flavour does come out a bit more, and if I concentrate it actually _is_ sort of mango-y. Still a pretty 'Meh' tea with too much hibiscus in it. ” Read full tasting note
To create our Mango Passionfruit herbal tea, we’ve taken fruity herbs such as rosehips, orange peel, hibiscus and lemongrass, and combined them with the naturally sweet flavor of mango and the tropical flavor of passionfruit. The result is a colorful and aromatic blend that brews up a bright red-orange in the cup with the distinct, exotic flavor of fresh mangos and passionfruits. It is delicious hot or iced and naturally caffeine free.

Too tired after work to fuss with loose leaves tonight, so this is the first bagged herbal I grabbed out of my tea chest. Cringed a little when I saw “licorice powder” in the ingredients, but surprise! it’s hiding behind the nice fruit flavor. This one’s worth repeating. I’ll have to go paw through my collection to see if there are any extra bags lurking around.
I know I said I was done with herbal blends, but I got this in a sampler from KeenTeaThyme, and decided to give it a go anyway. My previous experiences with Stash have been good, after all.
It smells very tart and citrusy, plus some other fruity scent that reminds me of hibiscus. The flavor does remind me of mango, but there’s just so much else going on. I mean, it’s pleasant, and there is something sweet in it that’s close to passionfruit. But mostly, this just tastes like an orangey Celestial Seasonings Zinger.
I agree with others that it gets better as it cools. Not sure why, but it’s true.

I had this tea this morning in my mom’s office.
I didn’t taste mango at all, I tasted tart passionfruit.
I didn’t really like it, but it wasn’t bad enough to make me want to not finish it. I think it would have been better with some sweetener.
I love mango like I love peaches. So this tea was a “MUST TRY”. Preparing it like I do with all my herbal teas. I awaited for the smell of the contains in the pouch was pleasant. My first attempt to taste its revealing nectar the tea was still hot (stupid me). My actual first sip was greeted by mango. The mango flavor from the liquor was not strong or little, but inviting upon my pallet. It was completed with a bitter taste that left me puzzled. Was this the taste of the passion fruit? I waited some more to see if letting it cool would make a difference. This was better for you had the mango with a touch of passion fruit. I will say that this tea is not one to serve or drink when hot. Let it cool for a few minutes to enjoy its liquor.
This was delicious! I’ve always had a fondness for a fruity tea, and this one definitely had me impressed. I made sure that it was cooled down after seeing recommendations that you definitely wanted to wait, and was greeted by the pleasant taste of passionfruit. The mango was definitely understated in comparison, but this is definitely a tea that is staying on my shelf. Yummy!
The company I work for is putting together the Christmas loot bags for our clients and tea is part of the bag. They had some left over and it’s how I got to score a handful of different Stash teas. I’ve been meaning to try Stash but at the same time didn’t feel like spending money on it because if I didn’t like them, now I’d have a whole box of it to drag around my cupboard.
This one’s ok. I used double the water this bag could take. I knew I wouldn’t want to get out of bed to resteep so I did double the quantity from the get go and I just left the bag inside seeing how it’s herbal.
It’s definitely convenient. I haven’t done bagged teas in so long I forgot now nice it is sometimes to not have all the accoutrements dragging around, cleaning them after and … stuff. It gets messy in the morning when one reaches over to snooze the 4.30 am alarm and knocks over the kettle or the infuser with the spent leaves. Now there’s nothing but a mug! And yes, it’s not too bad. I don’t feel like I’ve sacrificed my evening tea pleasuring (heh) for the sake of convenience.
(But something in this tea makes me sleepy. I should have gone for caffeine.)
