Tea Forte Green Mango Peach is a great summer tea, hot or cold. It’s light, mildly fruity with some sweetness. The aroma is lovely too, tropical and sweet. I didn’t find distinct mango or peach flavors, but rather a bright sense of fruit in the tea. In fact, the blend of ingredients is pretty interesting: green tea, mango cubes, peppermint, ginger root, green honeybush and natural flavors. I’m not too sure about “natural flavors” and what that actually means, though. I don’t taste much of the peppermint, but the green tea flavor is there and blends well with the fruits and balances the sweetness nicely. And, of course another thing I like about this tea: It’s USDA certified organic! Hooray!

While drinking this tea is reminded me of summer white wine actually. It has a crisp, clean, barely fruity taste that is light and easy to drink. Much like my favorite white wines for warm weather. This one is easily a go-to for green tea drinkers and for those looking to lighten it up in a fun way for the hot temps.

This is a nice mild green tea. It has a beautiful fruity smell. However, I don’t really taste the fruit flavors. It has a very mild mango taste but you get mostly just green tea flavor. The being said, the green tea taste is very nice. In my opinion, no sugar is needed for this tea.

What made me give this a 3.5 instead of a 4 was the small bits of tea. When I drink a loose tea I like it to have BIG leaves. For this tea you need a fine strainer. (see the photo above) The Mr Tea infuser worked pretty well, but some bits of tea still escaped. My wider strainer didn’t work at all and even the dry tea went right through the holes.
