Mango Tango is a fresh take on the classic tradition of flavored black teas. This blend of crisp Ceylon and fresh passion fruit and mango creates a light and fruity combination that is great any time of year. It brews into a deep, reddish liquor with a heady, bright aroma that lends itself to versatility; a steamy pot will warm you up when it’s cold out while an iced cup will keep you cool on hot summer days.

The name of this tea brings back memories! When I was flavoring and blending teas way back when … I too had a mango flavored black tea … and it was named Mango Tango. But after taking the first sip of this tea, the only comparison between this tea and that one is in name only. This tea is much different!
We both started with the same tea base: a high quality Ceylon tea. But The Tea Spot wasn’t content with just mango … no. They also added passion fruit essence to their blend to create an incredible tropical taste that’s really quite delightful.
The combination of mango and passion fruit makes for a very satisfying taste: sweet, luscious, and smooth. And while I am sipping this hot at the moment (it’s far too cold outside to even think about iced tea! I want something warm and comforting!) and I am finding it very delicious served hot, I think it would make a really amazing iced tea too.
I’m really enjoying this tea – this and the other amazing teas that The Tea Spot offers has placed them as one of my favorite tea purveyors out there. I haven’t yet found a tea from them that disappointed me!

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!
