Oh YUM! This Cranberry Mango Green Tea from Zen Tea is oh-so-delicious!
The contrast between the cranberry and mango is fantastic! This cup is at once sweet, tart, fruity, and of course, mildly invigorating with a lovely green tea lushness that I’m finding absolutely captivating.
I recommend letting this tea cool just a minute or two after pouring the cup, when it’s still right from the teapot hot, the flavors seemed to be hiding. But after a minute or two, the flavors really POPPED!
I’m loving the fruit flavor here. This tastes like authentic cranberry and mango – its not that artificial, chemical kind of fruit taste that some teas possess. The mango tastes sweet and juicy, like a fresh, ripe mango! Pair that with the robust tartness of the cranberry and BAM! You have a really delightful combination of fruits that work amazingly well together. Mango and cranberry are two flavors I wouldn’t have ordinarily thought of combining, but they work astonishingly well together!
And the green tea is not hidden in this blend either. The Chinese green tea tastes sweet, a little creamy (as if it were “kissed” with just a touch of butter) and slightly vegetative. I wouldn’t call it a grassy vegetative taste, more like the taste of steamed vegetables … but, a very mild vegetable … and the taste is very subtle. If you’re one who tends to shy away from green teas because of the sometimes aggressive vegetative taste … I’d recommend trying this one. The vegetative taste here is delicate.
This is really good – one that I’ll want to stock up on when it gets warm out … it’s going to make an AWESOMELY refreshing iced tea!
