Tea of the Week for February 8, 2016!

I love the Mango Sticky Rice dessert that is offered in my favorite Thai food restaurant. It reminds me a bit of rice pudding but with coconut and mango and even just a hint of caramelized flavor to it. So I decided pretty early on when Frank approached me about taking over 52Teas that I would need to create a Mango Sticky Rice dessert in tea form – and really, what base is more perfect than a Matcha infused Genmaicha base? I love the hint of creamy texture that the Matcha adds to this and the popped rice not only adds a hint of nutty rice flavor but also accentuates the touch of caramel flavor that I added to this blend.

This has the flavor of mango sticky rice but not the calories! YUM!

organic ingredients: green teas, popped rice, freeze-dried mango, toasted coconut, toasted sesame seeds and all-natural flavors.

Todd and I had this tea with our dinner yesterday. I got out my fancy hand-painted Japanese teaware that has a pattern of a sunset over trees and a shoreline, with a lazy swan gliding in the water. The cups were gifted to me from a coworker, and I was so happy I found the matching teapot on EBay!

I really like this one! Yesterday I only steeped for 2 minutes and found I got less of the traditional genmaicha flavor, and more of a lightly sweet mango and coconut flavor. I pushed the steep for my cup tonight to 3 minutes, and now I’m tasting the toasty flavor of the roasted rice as the most dominant note, with a sweet grassiness in the background, a subtle mango that comes forward late in the sip against the top and back of my mouth, and just a bit of a creamy/silky element to the mouthfeel from the coconut. Both were enjoyable cups, but I think I like it with the slightly longer steep since I like the strong genmai note.

omg, I had mango sticky rice for dessert the other day and finished it for breakfast. It is the best dessert ever! I wouldn’t want to try this tea in anticipation of disappointment but every time I see a note for it, I wonder…

derk

Hi Todd :)

Todd

Hi derk! I think you might like this tea…

ashmanra

Holy cow, I would be so excited to find the matching pot! That is awesome.

Lexie Aleah

That sounds like a beautiful teaware set!

Lexie Aleah

Wow! It’s so pretty and the color scheme reminds me of the sunset in Lion King. Also, your cat is so cute!

April 2021 Reblend Tea

I missed this one the first time around and my life was likely less fulfilled because of it. Why? Because this is a mango tea I finally enjoy. Maybe it’s the coconut compliment (an ingredient I no longer love as much as I used to). Maybe it’s that this tea attempts to imitate mango flavoured rice instead of an actual fresh, juicy mango – an object that is so full of delight, wonder, and magic sparkles that nothing can hope to compare to it (only my love of birbs tops my love of the great mango). I don’t know, except that I like it quite a bit and came on here after a long hiatus because of it.

So not bad, I guess.

Steep Count: 3 (2min, 3min, 6min)

Sipdown!

I enjoyed this one, even though I’m not a coconut lover. It has a nice realistic coconut flavor that goes well with the genmaicha. It really does remind me of coconut sticky rice, which is amazing. The grassiness of the green tea detracts a bit, but the short steep helps curb that.

I think I got a bit more mango in this last cup as well, maybe I had more mango cubes? Either way, it does conjure up the thought of sweet coconut-infused rice with a few mango slices perched on top.

Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Grass, Mango, Rice, Sweet, Toasted

Hot, I couldn’t taste any mango at all. When it cooled off, I did notice some fruitiness that went well with the toasty genmaicha flavor, though I would have liked even more mango. I could picture this flavor as mango sticky rice. I’m enjoying it more as I’m considering the flavors. A ton of coconut went into this cup, but I don’t taste any. That’s okay with me though! The second steep tasted similar to the first.

I absolutely love mango teas, and I absolutely love genmaichas, so I was very excited to try this. I got loads of coconut flavor, and the distinct popped rice, but not mango to my palate.

Flavors: Coconut, Toasted Rice

Sipdown and time to write about it. :)

Toasted rice, good genmaicha, the aroma of coconuts and mango… The taste is very natural, nothing artificial. The mango flavor is a little light for me but you can taste it in the finish. Toasted rice is the main note, and it’s a very creamy feeling tea.

52Teas has made me rethink coconut teas. I love fresh coconut but hate artificial tasting coconut so other than eating coconut straight, I generally stay away from any coconut flavored foods, drinks.. Etc. In their teas though, both the aroma and taste of the coconut is really good.

Gah, I’m the same about coconut in tea. This and the Foggy Morning reviews are tempting me to dip my toes.

Kawaii433

hehe derk… This month’s tea is a coconut banana pie o.O. Now I’m tempted to go try that too.

tea-sipper

Kawaii, the coconut banana cream pie was my FAVORITE blend from the previous owner of 52Teas, Frank. And I’ve tried so many teas from 52Teas over the years, so that’s saying something. haha. You should give it a try!

Roswell Strange

(It’s hard to go wrong with a 52Teas banana blend in general…)

Mastress Alita

Unless you hate banana, like me. :-P But I will get on the soapbox and say I am absolutely cursed with my coconut going bad so fast, yet the coconut 52Teas uses is not only some of the best tasting coconut I’ve ever had in tea, I also have yet to have it go bad on me while every other coconut blend in my house is doomed. I am a fiend for their Foggy Coconut and Coconut French Toast with Cardamom Maple Syrup.

Frolic

I missed out on this one and I’m really hoping it comes back for the 12 teas of Christmas.

derk

Oh, Foggy Coconut, that’s the name. Do want.

Kawaii433

tea-sipper, I’’m going to get it then. hehe
Roswell, I agree. I have loved all their banana teas I’ve tried.
Mastress Alita, bah about hating bananas :P and I remember a post or two of yours that you mentioned your coconut tea going bad.

Kawaii433

Frolic, there are a few, especially the banana ones, that come back soon.:)
Derk, ok, I’ll check it out. Thanks ^^

Frolic

I’m not a huge banana fan abut boy do I love coconut.

Kawaii433

Ah hehe, ok. I was just saying that I’m like you that I hope some teas come back. :D

tea-sipper

Kawaii, I hope you like the coconut banana cream pie. I will feel better missing out this time around if you buy it. :D

This is our Featured Reblend for February – and unfortunately (due to having less Genmaicha in stock than I realized) there isn’t a whole lot of it left after fulfilling subscriptions.

This tastes so much like I remember it – nice toasty rice flavor from the genmaicha – a sweet, custardy note, a touch of mango (that hits toward the finish and lingers) and toasted coconut. Sweet, yummy, creamy deliciousness. A nice representation, I think, of my favorite Thai dessert.

Frolic

Awww I’m sad I missed this. I was going to buy it even though I have way too much tea and just received a 52teas order but I decided to sleep on it. I’ll take it as a sign from the universe I need to drink more tea before I can buy any more.

Is there any chance you’ll reblend it again anytime soon though?

52Teas

Probably not soon. Maybe – if it does well in the 12 Teas of Christmas poll? This one takes more steps to blend than most of my other teas because I toast the sesame seeds and coconut and it requires more steps (not just because of the toasting) – and longer cure times as a result – it’s worth it in the long run, of course, but it’s not something that I can easily put on the slate to reblend any time.

I’m a huge mango fan and I’d like to try making stick rice pudding one of these days (gotta get my hands on some glutineous rice) so this tea was a no-brainer for me.

I was hit by a lovely strong mango odor when I opened the pouch and I couldn’t stop sniffing the tea, it was so good! It isn’t as prominent in the flavour of the hot tea, at least initially, but as it cooled off it crept back in, giving the tea a great fruity tang. The coconut is in the background more as a hint but it’s more of the nutty flavour of shredded coconut rather than the rich, creamy flavours of coconut milk which I think are what’s missing from this tea.
