New tea #3! Picked this up on Monday because it just smelled too good to not get. I only got 15 g however, and the mango pieces are pretty weighty, so there’s not a whole lot left in my bag. Ah well, enough for 2 or 3 cups.
The dry smell is so much mango! I don’t smell very much pomegranate, will have to see if it comes out in the flavor. I steeped for about 3 minutes, a bit shorter as this is a black tea and I tend to prefer shorter steeps. But there was mostly mango in my infuser lol, so it might be more fruity than black tea anyways. Steeped it smells sooooo juicy! Almost entirely mango again, there might not be a whole lot of pom in this tea, maybe I just didn’t get too many in my bag this time around.
So this is a very good fruity black! Very mango and fresh! I think there might be a tiny bit of pomegranate flavour, but mostly pure, juicy mango. There is not a lot of black tea taste either, but it does make a nice base for the punch of mango I think! Yum this is pretty good, I wish it was sunny here today because this screams spring leading into summer! It is a bit similar in flavor to Green & Fruity, but more mango and no rooibos adding in its own flavor. This would be a nice morning tea with the black tea kick of caffeine. Oh, and I am also trying my first attempt at cold brewing! With the leaves of this tea that were left over! I hope it goes good, I put it in a filter bag in my biggest mug in the fridge, with my perfect mug lid on it, I’m not sure if a lid is required, but since I don’t have a glass jar I hope this will work!
Overall, this is a pretty good fruity black tea. If you are into fruity black teas, you MUST get this, as it is excellent. I think the slight pom taste is coming out a bit more as it cools too. I will try to remember to update with how the cold brew turns out (if it is good haha).
ETA about cold brew – I let this cold brew for over 12 hrs, probably around 18? It wasn’t bad, but a bit weak, probably did not have enough tea leaves. The tea bag worked well though, I am going to use cold brewing to use up a bunch of the 100 pack of my teabags from Davidstea. Can’t wait to do more of these!!
