Taster’s Review:

A tea friend sent some of this tea my way, and I was only too glad to try it!  I love mango, and I love spicy teas, and this green tea seemed to offer both.  When I first opened the package, I was blown away with how delicious it smelled.  It reminded me of Thai food:  savory, sweet and spicy!  YUM!

The flavor is a bit of a surprise, actually!  It’s spicy, but it isn’t as hot as I thought it might be.  The spiciness is tempered by the sweetness of the mango and also the green tea, to give the cup a savory element.  It’s not a sweet tea which typically a mango tea is.  At the same time it’s not too spicy, instead I’d call it a mild-to-medium heat that builds gradually, and it offers a pleasant kick that lingers in the aftertaste.  I think that the spicy and the sweet have met together somewhere in the middle to provide a surprisingly savory cup that is absolutely mouthwatering!

I really love this.  Unfortunately, I was not able to find it on the Gurman’s website nor was I able to find it on the Nedas website.  That’s a bummer because this one is good, one I’d like to revisit again someday!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!

    • Hi Ruth!

      Thanks for commenting. I did hear that they are now carrying this tea on their website, but I just looked at the two links that I added to this review and did not find this tea. Do you have an alternate website link so that I can update this review?

      Thanks!
      ~Anne aka LiberTEAS
