Blegh. Another underwhelming fruit blend by Stash, ruined beyond hope of redemption by licorice. I only have one more fruit tea with this base blend to try. So far I’ve felt pretty much the same about all of them.

“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.

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.)
This is actually pretty good, especially with a pinch of sweet added. It’s sweet & fruity, a little tart, but there isn’t so much hibiscus in it that my mouth puckers.
It does kind of remind me of bayer orange flavored children aspirins, from when I was a kid.
On a side note, my grapes are starting to ripen, one grape at a time. I planted these grapes a few years ago, & according to the package, they were seedless red.
They are something along the lines of a concord…big hunk of pulp in the middle, touch skin, & 2 – 3 large seeds. Not my favorite kind of grape, due to texture, however, they are tasty.
The breakfast place across the street from work makes decent breakfast sandwiches. Inanely, their breakfast special makes it cheaper to get a sandwich and coffee than just a sandwich. Thankfully, they let me sub out tea for coffee.
This is my current favorite breakfast special tea. The flavor is creamy and dead-on for its name. As the brew cools, the flavor turns to more of a generic stone fruit – peach or maybe apricot. Still enjoyable, just different. I can’t quite get over how creamy this one is. It’s like the herbal tea version of a smoothie. Nom nom nom.
Caffeine-Free/Decaf Traveling Tea Box
1 bag + 8oz of water brewed regularly and then placed in the frig to cool
Even though this has licorice in the ingredients list, this isn’t bad! It’s not nearly as good as Davidstea Pink Passionfruit but it was drinkable without adding sweetener. Not something I’d probably buy though.
This is the first tea I sampled from the Caffeine-Free/Decaf Traveling Tea Box. I figured I’d like it iced better than hot since it’s a fruit tea. It was ok, but it’s not something I’d really go for. I’m just not a big enough mango fan to really like this.
Not the best mango tea I’ve ever had but still nice. It has a lovely fragrance and color. The taste isn’t overly sweet and there is no bitterness. The fruit flavor is more of an aftertaste then a full flavor. Despite other people’s comments, I prefer this tea hot. It seems a little sour to me when it cools. However, I would drink this again.
This kinda reminds me of another passionfruit infused tea I’ve had in the past… it seems that with all these fruity herbal blends, if there’s passionfruit, it’s the most prominent flavor. WHY. I was a little disappointed because I love mango but I really got none of it! Not awful, but too tart and bitter for me.
