I opened this bag while I was still at school… and oh my goodness, it smells amazing! It smells just like a ripe, juicy mango. Then I proceeded to pass the bag around to my two friends making them smell the tea (tea>than English papers:P). One friend took a whiff of it and then another…and another.. haha. He couldn’t get enough of it! He said that he wished this scent came in an air freshener because he loved it that much! :P
Needless to say I was so excited to brew this tea once I got home.
I only let this tea steep for three minutes and that whole time I was pacing around the kitchen in excitement… finally I open the lid and a light green tea, mango infusion hit me. mmmmm. * happy dance *
This tea has a much lighter flavor than the smell was suggesting and oddly, I really like it. First you get the tantalizing smell as you sip, followed by the light but smooth green tea, and finishing off with a lingering mango note. Oh, yes..
After all the uber fruity tisanes that I have been drinking lately, this was refreshing. It is fruity without being too overly fruity. Can’t wait to try this iced!
But mmmmm.. That smell of the tea.. I’m just tempted to leave the bag open to scent my whole room!^.^
