Somehow I was on the internets looking at teas during my buy-ban (a no no!) and noticed they had a mango chai that was being discontinued. So I just had to buy some and a couple other teas. I had a mango chai years ago that I loved and was hoping this was the same. The flavor is what I remember the other mango chai being, but I think the other tea had a couple other spice ingredients included. I’m not sure. This is CTC black tea (looks like with some other black tea mixed in as well) with plenty of spices and actual mango pieces and flavoring. I love there is mango pieces AND flavoring, the flavoring is sure to be immersed in the tea with both mango elements. I love the briskness, the boldness of the black tea matching the strong spices. The mango doesn’t get overpowered either. It’s delicious. I’m very happy I bought some before it’s gone. (still some available as I type this!)
Steep #1 // 1 3/4 teaspoons for a full mug // 18 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3-4 minute steep
Edited to add: I feel bad buying a couple teas in my buy-ban BUT it has been almost six months without actually buying any teas, and six months is probably the record for not buying teas…. since I started drinking teas. So the record was beaten anyway.
