Finally a tea blend using hibiscus done right! Miami Mango from Steep City Teas is refreshing, sweet, excellent hot, or iced, and just a perfect blend. Fruity, with definitive flavors of mango, and a lightly zesty flavor that makes you feel revived and energized. The hibiscus in this blend is truly necessary to give it the added zip and tang that it has yet it is not overly done as in so very many teas that have hibiscus in them!
This tea is surprising and versatile. I could see this being mixed into a tea cocktail with alcohol, or just lightly sweetened a little more and served to the kids at a party. I love it with no additives hot, and iced it becomes this dreamy island drink that reminds me of hot steamy nights in Miami Beach, listening to Jimmy Buffet or Reggae music while digging my toes into the sand.
This tea takes you right to the edge of tart but is absolutely not puckering or sour, the sweetness is just perfect, like being kissed by candied lips but not being spoon fed sugar.
The apple peeks out more as the tea comes closer to a room temp and when iced the apple pops even more but does not leave luscious mango behind!
Lets not forget though, through all of these sunny flavors, this is a tea, that is one thing that is fairly easy to forget as you get lost in the plentiful flavors of this blend, however there is a nice black tea base used here that is mild and compliments the true nature of this tea.
Miami Mango from Steep City Teas is an excellent steep for those like me, who are dreaming of sunny summer days ahead.
