I was interested in the name of the blend since it implied a white and green tea base. The label of the packaging indicated that it contained “China Sencha, Lung Ching, green Yunnan and Pai Mu Tan” – quite a few teas! Looking at the blend, there was also a nice sprinkle of rosebuds and mango cubes. The dry blend had a nice pear aroma that became grassier after steeping.
The liquor was smooth and pale yellow with very mild astringency. The green and white tea blend base came through and had a very clean taste. There was a slight sweetness at the tail end of the sip, which may have come from the mango cubes or pineapple flakes.
This would be a nice tea if you want to unwind and relax with a book or movie!
Here’s the scoop!

Today’s tea I geeked out a bit – I have to admit – it’s Jackfruit Delight from Mahamosa. Now let me tell you WHY I geeked out about Jackfruit Delight from Mahamosa. There are several reasons. The first being that it’s Jackfruit. Jackfruit has been popular in certain countries for a while now but here in the US it’s gaining popularity and I try and find Jackfruit and Jackfruit flavored things whenever I can. The 2nd reason I geeked out about Jackfruit Delight from Mahamosa is because it’s a Black and Green Tea Blend. I’ve had a lot of black/green blended teas that have been pretty bad and this one is the complete opposite. This black and green tea blend is super YUMMY!
Jackfruit Delight from Mahamosa smells like Jackfruit, green tea, and black tea. Mission accomplished on aroma! It ‘brews up’ a darker brown once in the cup. The Jackfruit flavor is powerful followed by BOTH the green tea and black tea flavors. My palate picked up about 60/40 green/black ratio. I think this is a good ratio to have. I have tried green/black blends before and all you can taste is a ‘stale’ green tea and very little to NO black tea. This is NOT the case here with Jackfruit Delight from Mahamosa. The green tea is nice and fresh and so is the black tea in this blend. The black tea doesn’t over power the green tea or the flavor of the Jackfruit. I give this tea two thumbs up on aroma, flavor, and blending success!
