Iced, of course – this mango tea makes for a great iced tea! Nice base and lovely mango flavor.
Uggg, hopefully now I can get the motivation to go to the post office to mail hot pink squids.

One of our most popular black teas is a blend of whole leaf black tea with natural mango flavor, safflower and orange peel! This tropical refresher makes the perfect iced tea!
The black tea in this blend is single estate and originates from a garden in Northern India known for producing full-bodied tea.
Full leaf lack tea, natural mango flavor, tea flowers, safflower and orange peel.
Brew 1 teaspoon loose tea in hot water (180 – 212˚F) for 3 minutes.

My teenage daughter says, “I’m not an expert like you Mom, but this tea tastes really good.” That’s a few minutes after steeping with the water having cooled, and zero sweetener. Yep, it’s a tasty tea.
Out of the bag it smells very tropical and mango-y, with a slight hint of floral in there too. I’m okay with the floral in this case, as it’s faint and seems to only enhance instead of taking over.
Steeped, the mango is prominent, with whatever floral note falling way behind, and the black base solid in the middle. I prefer this lightly sweetened with Truvia, but that’s just because it’s more fruity.
Will I buy this again? It’s tasty. I have a credit with Teajo because of the exploding tea incident during shipping — and thank you for the credit, and for dealing with the issue so quickly! If I needed something else to round out my order? Yes, I’d order this again. I doubt I’d go out of my way though if this was the only thing I wanted.
Sipdown! Thanks to Sil (and indirectly, Piccolo at Teajo Teas) for a sample of this tea. I opted to request a sample of the straight assam (which is brewed up and ready to review beside me), so it was great to be able to swap samples and try two teas instead of one!
The aroma of this tea was strangely rather floral, to me. I was expecting a stronger fruity/mango aroma, but it was more floral/fruity… and unfortunately I like my fruits to be juicy and verging on tart, not so floral. I was hoping that the flavour wouldn’t be the same, but it appears it is. I’m getting a floral, mangoey flavour (it does taste somewhat like mango, I’ll agree) paired with what I’ve have to say is a great black base, which is smooth and malty. I’m just not really a big fan of the flavouring, and that kind of ruins the tea for me :( I’d love to try the base paired with other fruits, so maybe sometime in the future when we inevitably make a Teajo order, I will get to try some of that!
ETA: I oversteeped (and therefore threw out) my re-infusion, but the leaves definitely had enough flavour for 1-2 more infusions. Just a bit too much on the floral side for me.
Wow, this tea is intense (in a good way!) Thanks so much to Piccolo and Teajo for the sample! I love the deep rich assam with the assertive mango flavor. I am enjoying it hot but I’m sure it will be wonderful iced, too. It is an interesting contrast to the peach oolong I had earlier today, too, heh.
Thank you Piccolo and Teajo Teas for this generous sample!
There was enough here to make around half a dozen cups in the pouch I was sent, but I didn’t try it iced until the very end. That’s a shame because the fruity mango flavours really come to the surface in the colder brew. I get fruity notes of mango, peach, and raisins and a smooth sweeping of something floral (it’s starting to bug me that I don’t know my flowers), sweetness, and a brisk, somewhat sour, finish that makes my mouth pucker a bit.
The hot mugs I made up were a little more muddled and brisk, and maybe that’s my fault. It was more flowery and scented hot, whereas the cold brew allows for more syrupy mango, which is what I was looking for.
I don’t think I would pick up this particular blend again but I did enjoy drinking a mug before trying out the elliptical trainer in the evenings. Black teas, even fruity ones like this, tend to make me feel more energized and ready to move than green teas do. I don’t know what I was thinking when I decided to only bring two fruity greens and one fruity black tea. I failed at tea packing and traveling.
Edit: As it sits longer and the dust sinks to the bottom the briskness is swapped for a creaminess that reminds me of sour yogurt and fruit. This is the best this tea has ever tasted for me. Really slapping myself in the face right now for not trying it iced sooner.
This is my second review on Tropical Mango. I made up 24 oz of this to take to work, drinking it warm to start with and then as it cooled off, I added some ice to enjoy it cold. As with all teas, I think a little sweetener really brings out the fruit, but it is also fine straight both as a hot and a cold tea. I decided that this is worth ordering again-it seems to have a good tea base and the flavor of the black is not overwhelmed by the mango-it is well blended. Teajo has sample sizes for sale, so I look forward to trying more of their teas. I like it that their teas are organically grown and they use all natural flavors.
Thank you to Teajo teas for this sample!
This one hurts my nose. There’s a floral and cinnamoney, spicey scent going on. I can’t entirely say with any accuracy that i’m smelling mango. In sipping this, i don’t taste mango whatsoever. I suspect that this might be a better cold brew than hot, but hot is how i tried it. I do really like the tea base for this one. But in terms of the flavouring, it’s just not what i was hoping for.
I know I’ve had actual mango before, but I can’t remember what it tastes like. I think I might have to see about getting one soon, I wonder if anywhere around here has some?
This is a very generous sample from Teajo Teas, thanks! I’ve been craving fruity teas lately, maybe because the weather here is warming up and I have dreams of fruity iced teas dancing around in my head. As soon as you open the bag, a delicious, sweet, fruity mango flavor comes out. I felt like this would be a good idea for a cold brew, so last night I popped it in the fridge and let it sit overnight so I could take it to classes this morning. Is caffeine affected by cold brewing, I wonder? Either way, this tastes great! I’ll have to try it hot, but I can see myself definitely reordering this in the summer months for iced tea all the time. The tea and the mango are both present. At the front is the mango, with the base tea backing it up. It’s sweet enough on its own that it doesn’t need any sweeteners, but I can see this being really good with some sugar added, probably like some kind of mango juice.
This was a sample thanks to Teajo Teas. I look forward to being able to buy some tea from them soon:)
Smell wise: I had gotten this on Monday…I think? But hadn’t been able to test it til now. And of course I could not resist opening it and sniffing it. It smells quite good, just like Mangos though I can see why people would smell Peach, too. However, there is an odd underlying smell of chemicalness that puts me off. Kind of reminded me of how oranges can get when they are getting old.
Taste Wise: It’s an interesting tea, not boring. Though I cannot say that I am especially inspired by this tea. But…I am impressed to the extent that I think I will come across teas that I do like even love from this company, most likely in the ‘Around the World’ sampler that I intend on buying in the next few months.
