Saw a box of 100 of this and the organic White tea bags at Winner’s; bought 1 of each. Figured: how bad can it be?
Well, it could have been terrible. Thankfully, I don’t have 100 bags of terrible mango green tea to drink. Thankfully.
The smell is much more mango-y than the taste. That shouldn’t be all that surprising; we are talking about bagged green tea after all. I do wish more of the flavour had come through. That being said, it was a fruity green tea. No bitterness, not very grassy. Overall, pretty good. I don’t know if I would buy another box of 100 if given the opportunity (I rarely drink tea fast enough to be able to buy the same thing at Winner’s twice), but it’s not terrible. A good tea for meetings and conferences when loose leaf isn’t practical.
Verdict: probably wouldn’t re-buy, only because it’s Winner’s and when was the last time you saw the same thing in that store 6 months apart?!
