drank Mango Yo Sweet Green Tea by Oobli
244 tasting notes

This ready-to-drink, canned iced tea is marketed to folks trying to decrease the sugar in their diets. It’s sweetened with “sweet plant protein” that apparently breaks down differently in the body and consequently doesn’t raise blood glucose levels? I dunno, I saw an advert and thought it was worth a try.

My opinion of all three flavours is the same: the fruit juice bit is good (although I would’ve liked this more without yuzu), the level of sweetness is good, and the kind of sweetness is good (no strange aftertaste; my brain could easily get used to this). The problem is the iced tea bit, which is just … bad. It doesn’t taste like good quality tea. And I don’t know good quality tea, really, so if I’m saying it, well. (In fairness, this one’s a bit better than the ones with a black-tea base.)

They should improve the quality of their tea or they should make sparkling fruit juices or something.

Flavors: Mango, Yuzu

2012.10.07: I hear people like to understand other people’s ratings, so here’s a loose guide:

01-29: Dear God, why.
30-49: I’ll finish this cup, I guess, but no more.
50-59: Meh.
60-69: Decent. Maybe I can blend it with something else and make it better.
70-79: Heeey, this is quite good!
80-89: I love it, but I’m not in love with it.
90-100: Permanently resident in my Happy Place.

Update: I have steeped, and it was good. =] Still a tea-ophyte, though.

This is a tea site, so I feel like “well, I’m Indian” should be enough of an introduction. Because, I mean, it’s kind of in my genes, right? But the fact of the matter is that I’m an absolute tea-ophyte.

I’ve just discovered a world beyond Celestial Seasonings. I’ve just discovered “sachets” instead of “normal” tea bags and bought my first loose tea sampler. I don’t get the whole water temperature and steep time thing yet, nor that if I want to get a yixiang tea pot, I’d need one for each type of tea. I have this infuser ball thing, but I haven’t used it yet.

Don’t cringe, but right now I’m still just boiling water and pouring it over a teabag, adding some sugar, and drinking a nice, hot cuppa. I’d like to learn more, I think, and I’d like to train my palate. I figure participating in this community is the best way to do that.

So ya. Hi!
