Leaf Type: Fruit/Herbal Tisane
Where to Buy: Fusion Teas
This award winning blend combines extra large flakes and cubes of juicy exotic fruits. A perfect balance. Low in acid this artful taste was further enhanced by a particularly sweet and fresh flavor combination. A very delicious fruit tisane, which will outshine all other juice drinks. Especially refreshing over ice.
The mango is the national fruit of a few countries including India as they are the worlds largest cultivator. In Hinduism, the perfectly ripe mango is often held by Lord Ganesha as a symbol of attainment, regarding the devotees potential perfection. Mango leaves also play a large role in the culture. They are used in the worship of the goddess Saraswati and during celebrations such as weddings. In this comparing symbolism the mango is Lord Ganesha and the devotees are his friends that have attained its potential perfection. We think you will agree that this blend needs to be celebrated.
Ingredients: pineapple cubes, mango cubes, pineapple and mango flakes, orange slices, tangerine pieces, safflower, marigold blossoms, and strawberries
Do you love mango? Because this is the BEST mango tisane I’ve ever tasted!
The mango flavor is strong! But mango is not the only flavor here. I can taste hints of pineapple and tangerine. I don’t taste much from the strawberry, but every once in a while, it peeks its way through the other flavors. And here’s the best part … there is NO hibiscus in this! Yay! I’m so glad that Fusion Tea Room decided to leave the hibiscus out of this blend.
The overall flavor is sweet and fruity. It has a very nectar-like quality. I can almost feel the pulpy texture of the mango on my tongue. There is a hint of tartness to this – not a lot, just enough to keep things interesting.
Obviously, this tisane is mostly about the mango… but I like that I can taste these other flavors in there too. While mango is the guest of honor at this party, the mango seems happy to share the attention with some of its friends!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
