From Steep City Teas

Much like Miami, this black tea has a distinct sunny-like smell filled with passion, a colorful character and a sweet sweet taste. This mango blend with elder berries, apple pieces and lemon peels will evoke the paradise of sunny beaches with fresh fruit in your mouth. It combines a lemon zest with mango undertones that will leave you refreshed and energized. Prepare yourself for an amazing black tea that is great hot or iced. If you love Miami and you love mangos and lemons, this is one not to miss.

THIS is so much better than i remember! Cold brew for the win! With a teeeeeny tiny bit of sweetner this is a pretty delicious cup of ice tea. It makes my happy as well since this is one of my older teas that i need to get to drinking down. I’m trying to do a multitude of things with my cupboard these days – sipdown 52 teas; get to 150; finish off my small sizes of things; try everything in my cupboard that i have yet tried…. you get the drift. :) At least it makes for a bit of fun, organising and re-organising things haha

While i wouldn’t call this an overly “mango” blend, it is pretty fruity and tasty in cold brew form. not too sweet and not to tart..and totally not hibiscus-y :)

Iced 8 min or more

Thanks so much Steep City for sending me some samples! Very appreciated! I love the packaging and logo of the samples. This one sounded amazing. With it being the first day of spring and still snowing, I think I’ll try this tea and hopefully be transported to somewhere tropical (spring weather-wise was so early last year!) There was a HUGE mango chunk that fell into my infuser, so they aren’t lying! After a three minute steep, the color is orange hued, almost like the mango itself. The black tea doesn’t overpower the flavors, and there is just enough hibiscus to make this taste perfect. I can always tolerate hibiscus if it is the perfect amount! It definitely tastes like mango, but how couldn’t it with that huge piece? The cup even maintains a bit of starchiness that a mango has. I really like this one! It’s nice if you want a bit of caffeine with a fruity flavor. The second steep is just as good. Very genuine and authentic mango. It’s juicy, refreshing, thirst quenching, and everything I was hoping this tea to be!

The third of my Steep City Samples. I actually was saving this one because there was a chance I would be moving to Miami (I had to make a decision by today) but it turns out I won’t. So I guess this is my almost-moved-to-Miami cup.

There is a lot of stuff in this tea but it seems like it should all go together. I have to admit I was a tad disturbed by the small, slightly granular shape of the black tea leaves in this one… nothing like the wiry leaves in Nutty Love.

Fortunately it all turned out fine. No bitterness or astringency, tart without being sour. This hibiscus seems better deployed to me than the Citrus Sunshine Oolong, as it isn’t taking over the cup here. This is very fruity; definitely mango but also a fair amount of berry and hibiscus flavor. The black tea base I could take or leave; it doesn’t do much for this blend, and it seems a bit “thin” overall. I plan to cold brew the rest of my sample of this one for sure.

Hey Dinosara, thanks and glad you enjoyed this tea a bit better. Many people believe that tea leaf length is equivalent to quality, often it is when compared to fannings in tea bags, but you will also find that smaller leaves are not lower in quality (depending on what teas you are comparing) to teas that are long and wiry like the Nutty Love. For this blend we decided on opting for this base as it paired better with the Mango flavors. Glad you enjoyed it better. Hope all is well!

david

Often the length of the tea is decided (by the farm) in order to ensure a certain speed or style of infusing with the water.

Dinosara

Thanks for your comments! It’s nice to learn about how people make the decision on a base tea for flavored blends.

david

No problem! Hope you can enjoy some more of our teas soon :)

Full review on http://sororiteasisters.com/ March 10th 2013 but here are the snippits:

Finally a tea blend using hibiscus done right! Miami Mango from Steep City Teas is refreshing, sweet, excellent hot, or iced, and just a perfect blend. Fruity, with definitive flavors of mango, and a lightly zesty flavor that makes you feel revived and energized. The hibiscus in this blend is truly necessary to give it the added zip and tang that it has yet it is not overly done as in so very many teas that have hibiscus in them!

This tea takes you right to the edge of tart but is absolutely not puckering or sour, the sweetness is just perfect, like being kissed by candied lips but not being spoon fed sugar.

Lets not forget though, through all of these sunny flavors, this is a tea, that is one thing that is fairly easy to forget as you get lost in the plentiful flavors of this blend, however there is a nice black tea base used here that is mild and compliments the true nature of this tea.

Sil

yay! this one arrived the other day at my place. Just waiting to get through a few others first

Azzrian

:) Yay I hope you like it as much as I do!

Sipdown! Thanks to Sil for this one.

I’m pretty ambivalent about this tea. A 2.5 minute infusion was great for the base, which I’m quite enjoying, but there’s not enough mango flavour for me. On the other hand, what mango I am tasting is much more along the lines of how I’d like it to taste, as opposed to the floral messes some blenders seem to make mango into (there is a difference between yucky floral and fruity floral!! I know mangos are quite sweetly aromatic, but that does not mean that they are flowery!)

Anyhow, with more mango flavour, I think this one could be great. Might be one to try another sample of while visiting Sil for a tea date :D (Unless she sips down that one before I make it there! So much sipping down!)

So not going to get through this bag before our next meet up so just make note of it.

This wasn’t all that memorable. Fruity, sure… a little tart… and I’m positive that there was a nice mango tone in there, I just didn’t find it to be a juicy mango.
Also, I was doubly positive there was some hibiscus in my infuser, and I could certainly taste something sour… but I don’t see it in the ingredients. I’m not impressed. On the other hand, I didn’t hate it so that’s a plus!

david

Hi Indigo, this tea does have hibiscus. Ingredients found here. http://www.steepcityteas.com/collections/black-tea/products/miami-mango

it’s supposed to add a nice complement, not overpower though.

Indigobloom

ah thanks!! good to know. It wasn’t in the steepster ingredients list.

First off, I should admit I added sugar. I always add sugar. I am a sugar addict. That being said, this is a really good tea. Another hit from my order from Steep City Teas. This is nicely fruity and all around a very pleasant blend. The black tea and the fruit are nicely balanced and neither is overwhelming. I am enjoying this mug of tea very much and I’m sure I will enjoy the rest of the pot just as much.

So overall, if you want a fruity mango tea, this is a good one, I recommend.

This tea was okay, but it didn’t really grab me. Overall, I found it a little bland. Not enough mango flavour or aroma. To me, mangoes sometimes have a kind of punky taste/smell that doesn’t appeal to me — and the mango that I could detect in this tea had that.
