Thank you Jillian for trading for this tea. The blend of saffron and mango interested me too and it was something I really wanted to taste.
I have had this for a while and over that time had many cups of it so I was surprised to see that I have not yet reviewed it. Until now that is.
Steeping time and temperature as stated on the box (despite my distaste for boiling green tea) I have followed instructions exactly.
The liquid created is burnt orange in colour with a potent juicy mango fruit smell. The fruit is not as strong as the smell (unfortunately) and there is also a little sweetness with a slight bitter and perfumey taste.
In honesty it’s hard to detect anything special about this tea when it comes to pure flavour. It’s quite tasty for a bagged tea don’t get me wrong but it’s not quite what I had in mind.
