Continuing my September sipdown efforts by finishing off this one. It’s…ok. I don’t mind it, but don’t love it either. I steeped it for exactly two minutes at 180f to avoid oversteeping per directions, so it’s not a matter of bad preparation. I haven’t had this all that long either, so it’s not a matter of the tea being too old. I’m just not all that impressed with the quality of the base tea or the flavoring. The base tea is fine, it’s a basic pan-fired green tea that’s slightly on the dry side. The flavoring is sort of generically “sweet tropical fruit” but isn’t really distinctly mango. It’s missing a certain fresh brightness that’s promised in the name and description but not quite delivered in the final product.
ETA: Bonus, this counts as a tropical tea for Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge this month!
