2nd tea by The Capsoul I tried. A lovely tin, a fresh and coulourful label, which already makes you feel good…and then you open the tin (it must be said that it´s a good thing to have not only the lid to close the tin, also a plastic lid to squeeze on top of the container) : the tea smells very nice, the fruity fragrances seem natural (honestly a lot more than the bergamot in the case of the Earl Grey of The Capsoul), a bit underwhelmingly if you like the big aromatised fruit teas, but fortunately, this is not the case for me.
After 3 minutes of steeping (as recommended on the label), the tea is light, but subtly fruity and easy to drink. While the aroma´s are definitely more mango-like, the flavour is dominated (still w/o topping the base pu erh) by the passion fruit. A summer-y tea according to me, and I´m curious what this can give when iced.

Flavors: Mango, Passion Fruits

195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
