I’ve been digging around on the Mandala Tea website, reading through everything so I can make a ridiculous list of teas to buy and try. Anyway, I found out that they sell trace mineral drops as a flavor enhancement and since I have some at home already I decided to add a few drops to my tea today. Has anyone else tried this? I’m not sure if I can taste the difference but I like the idea of it and I’m getting some good stuff in. Might experiment with adding a few more drops with each cup to see what I like best.

This is a papaya-flavored tea and while I’m not a fan of fresh papaya I do like this blend. It tastes more like peach to me, I think. Which I love, of course.

Flavors: Peach, Stonefruit

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I can’t remember where I saw them (Global Tea Hut, maybe?)… somewhere was selling a little handful of rocks that you could put in your teapot to increase mineral content.


Oh that’s interesting!

I love flavored black teas most of all, always with cream and honey. I enjoy floral and fruity teas, as well as flavored or scented ones. I’m not overly fond of green or white teas, but I’ve found a few that I enjoy.

I’m open to tea swaps and/or just sharing what’s in my tea cabinet! Please reach out if you see something I have that you’d like to try. I do my best to update my cupboard regularly.

Any and all black teas, smoky teas, raspberry, strawberry, red fruits, bergamot, chai spices, floral teas, caramel/toffee, jasmine, rose, vanilla, peaches, plums, valerian root, cinnamon, cardamom

Not a huge fan
White teas, green teas, artificial sweeteners, sarsaparilla, licorice, lemongrass, lavender, hot hibiscus, hibiscus in black tea blends

Rating Scale

1-20: By far, one of the worst teas I’ve tasted. I most certainly will not finish my cup and will likely “gift” the rest to my sweet husband, James, who almost always enjoys the teas I dislike (and vice versa).

21-49: This tea is not good, but if I mix it with another tea or find another steeping method I might be able to finish it.

50-69: This one is just okay. I might drink it again if someone were to give it to me, but I probably won’t be buying more for myself.

70-79: This is a consistently good tea. It’s reliable but not necessarily special.

80-90: This one is a notch above the rest and I would gladly enjoy a cup of it any day of the week. I’ll likely be keeping this in my cupboard, but it isn’t one of my all-time favorites.

91-95: One small change and this tea would be perfect. I’ll definitely have a stash of this in my kitchen if you come over for tea.

96-100: No words can describe this tea. It’s an experience, an aha moment. Closed eyes, wide smile, encompassing warmth. Absolutely incredible. Perfect.
