 Words that come to mind to describe this tea are tropical and summertime. I sampled this tea hot, but I think it would make a great iced tea. In fact, I recently made some ice cubes with frozen mango pieces in them for white sangria and I think they could work well added to this as an iced tea too!

The flavors in this tea are simple, but refreshing: grassy green tea and fresh mango. The combination works well to give just a little sweetness to the green tea.  I don’t like teas that are too sweet, so this tea gives just enough of it to make me happy.

Taste: 4 of 5 leaves – Quite a good cuppa!

When steeped this tea has a lovely golden-orange color. First I made it in a ceramic mug but I really loves the look of this tea in my clear travel
Mug. Very pretty! Speaking of travel mugs, if you make this tea “to-go” be sure to use a mug that allows you to remove the leaves from the water. Most green teas have a tendency to become bitter. This was one of the less forgiving green teas I’ve had.

This tea has a grassy Green mango flavor, with no real sweetness. This tea smells wonderful. However, I wish the strong notes of mango that I could smell came across more in the steeped cuppa. This is a good standby. Know that this is not a light & mild green; instead it is a full bodied gassy green taste.
