I got a cup of this at Panera this afternoon with lunch since I was cold and tired from birding in the morning. Today is a pretty nice day relatively, but I wish it was like tomorrow is going to be… a lot warmer! I’m going to a concert tonight too and I’m not really looking forward to standing in the cold.

This tea was pretty decent. Most of the time I was just reminded about how much I hate drinking tea in tea bags from paper cups… too much paper taste! This tasted like a light-bodied black tea with a bit of mango. The mango wasn’t very strong, but it tasted relatively juicy and not cloyingly candy-like. When I look for a fruity black I really want a nice, rich base behind it, and that just wasn’t there in this cup. Also in a mango tea I prefer something even more mangoey. I would drink this one again if it was a choice at a restaurant, but I’m not going to buy a tin.

Like Dinosara, I picked this up at Panera with my chicken caesar salad for lunch. Salads are cold, and I wanted something warm to go with it. So this seemed to be a safe choice. I drank it straight.

In the end, the tea was fairly weak but the flavor that was there was good. It definitely needs a lot more mango in my opinion. I didn’t taste much mango or fruitiness in general. I suppose the tea was slightly sweeter than if the mango flavoring had not been added. I think if I had added milk or sugar, then that’s all I would have tasted.

Overall, it warmed me up and was pleasant enough. It’s one of those teas that I’d rather have than no tea at all. But if presented with a lot of other tea choices (especially loose leaf), I’d go with something else.

I always have to put two republic of tea bags in the cup at panera because one isnt enough. The honey ginseng green one is good!

CHAroma

Good tip! Thanks! That probably would have worked out a lot better. I did get the feeling that there wasn’t a good water to leaf ratio from the tea bag.

An absolute screamer day at work (clock ticking, school starts, post-tornado, in less … than … one … week … and … everything’s … an … emergency) so to be honest, I’m not sure I could taste any of the tea I could find time to swig in between crises. But I found a corner to crouch in during lunch and enjoyed this one. A nice balance of the two flavors that tipped a little more heavily toward the Ceylon, which was fine with me. Would be great iced, I think.

Maybe the bag was old. I could not taste the Ceylon. The mango is pleasant. There just isn’t enough tea in the bag to make a real cup. That’s a shame as this isn’t bad and it could be good. One of the better RoT’s I’ve tried. Oh, and I could taste the paper :(

-Round natural unbleached teabag.
-Teabag smells of sweet, tangy mango. Tea liquor smells slightly malty with a hint of fruit.
-Tea liquor is a dark amber-brown color.
-Fruity flavor with a malty finish.
-Best with milk and sweetener. (Milk lessens the mango flavor).
-Very good tea. Perfect for a juicy morning tea.

I was quite impressed by the fruity mango sweetness that came out of this tea when I made it up iced. This is the 3rd of 6 RoT teas my work stocks. I think I’ve enjoyed this the most so far. I do like the base of this tea, I just find that RoT’s teas taste “dusty” when hot, and I don’t get as much dust when sipping them iced.

Got this today with my catalogue – I fear I have over steeped this as I got distracted by a cold tea I had infused last night – was straining it. Anyway .. here we go … I can already smell that it may be a bit bitter – and now I don’t know if it is due to my over steeping or if it is in fact just bitter. I will assume that it is my fault.
Through the bitterness I smell something else … what is that familiar smell? Nutty? Woodsy? Could that be the mango? More like mango PEEL perhaps.
Tastes just like it smells. You know even though I know I over steeped – it really is not bitter. That is good!
Good black tea base – not complex or anything but a straight up black tea.
Clean and crisp – no astringency – nice.
I like it – I don’t LOVE it but not complaining.
This is one I would order if out at Panera or wherever or would happily drink at a friends, but as for a purchase I don’t think so. When I drink a flavored tea I want a bit more flavor than this offers.
I do appreciate that unusual smell / taste though.
Wish I had one more tea bag of it.

This is my go-to iced tea…and it’s a good one. It has a nice fruit taste, not too strong, not overpowering, not fake. A great tea for refreshing oneself on a hot day.

So I’m not the biggest fan of RoT, but when I am at Panera or somewhere that serves it and I have a tea craving, I usually go for the Mango Ceylon. The other one I really like is the green tea with ginger and peach. Like I said, I don’t drink these every day, but they get the job done in a pinch.

While I began drinking this I noticed something very familiar in this, but I couldn’t isolate the subtle flavor and thought that the sunflower seeds I had eaten earlier where tainting my palette. I looked to see what else was in this and turned out that it has sunflowers in it. The blending of mango and sunflowers is a very nice complement. This may become a new favorite.
