Green Tea Mango from Story Of My Tea. . .

This tea comes with a delightful “HELLO!” on the packaging. A tall thin envelope complete with a greeting from the tea itself: “Hello, I am the most delicious and energizing Green Tea Mango iced tea you will ever taste!” Well tea, if you are excited, I guess I am too!

The conversation doesn’t stop there though. This tea goes on to say “People say I am *Smooth *Sweet * Tropical. I contain caffeine. I am made of Chinese grown sencha, mango flavor and sunflower blossoms”. So that was pretty informative.

I opened the package and to my surprise, this was one large tea bag made for pitcher brewing. But how do I steep this pitcher of tea? Well, the tea had an answer to that question right on the package: “Cold Steep (Simple & Smooth) – Toss me in a quart of water and refrigerate for about 4 – 6 hours. or Hot Steep (Quick & bright) – Steep me in half a quart of hot water (170F for 3 – 4 minutes). Then add another half a quart of ice cubes.” Well thanks again, tea…you are so helpful! I went with the cold steep method and as soon as the water hit the teabag, the scent of mango filled the air. I left this for 5 and a half hours for no other reason than I forgot about it.

Sipping on it now, I will say the tea might actually live up to its promise of being the “most delicious Green Tea Mango iced tea”. This tastes just like 7D Dried Mangoes. Super sweet and deliciously fruity. The green tea base, as promised, is smooth and thus hangs out in the background, contributing the slightest bit of grassiness. It really is quite good and I doubt I will have any problems finishing off the pitcher.

So this was certainly a great introduction to Story of My Tea. The packaging was a lot of fun and the pitcher sized teabag is so simple to brew. Plus, the company delivers on flavor as well! What else can a girl ask for?

Green Rainbow from Love Some Tea. . . . .


Being summer time in the Midwest, cold brew tea is where it’s at.  I love drinking cold brew all day at work.  All I do is take my favorite water bottle, set it up the night before with a few scoops of tea, allow the tea to brew and viola, the next morning I have wonderful fresh cold brew tea to enjoy during the day.  The other day, I thought I’d try this dandy from Love Some Tea as my daily cold brew.

Green Rainbow is a flavored passion fruit green tea that gives so much loving.  When you first open the bag, you are greeted with a gorgeous fruity aroma that demands attention and cries to be cold brewed with loving care.

Cold brewed, this tea is the perfect answer to a hot summer day.  With a green tea base that is light, refreshing, but full of flavor mingled gracefully with the passion fruit flavor, each sip becomes more satisfying than the last.

What really kept me drinking this tea all afternoon was the tangy almost sherbet like flavors this tea yielded.  I was able to keep drinking this tea all day by just continuously adding water and ice to my water bottle.

For my first experience with Love Some Tea, I’m quite pleased with how this tea turned out as a cold brew.  Not sure how I would like this tropical sherbet like tea hot brewed, but it doesn’t matter.  This is one tea that may just become a staple in my tea stash during the summertime to enjoy on days when I need a cold brewed treat.

Taster’s Review:

Orange and Papaya flavored green tea from Tea Shirt had my interest right away. I mean orange, papaya, and green tea? How could this blend be anything but amazing?

When I received the tea, I was surprised by how big the fruit chunks are in it.The picture is exactly what you get.  Huge chunks of mango, papaya, and orange peel along with apple pieces. Really lovely to look at and amazing to smell. Very rich in citrus and tropical notes.

I scooped a few heap fulls into my infuser and cold brewed this tea. With how muggy the summer has been lately, I wanted this tea to be a nice iced cold brew.

I let the tea cold brew overnight and tried it in the morning. I was hoping that those gorgeous chunks of fruit and lovely green tea leaves would produce an amazing treat for my taste buds. And it did just that!

The green tea gives a lovely buttery base that the orange and papaya flavors compliment nicely.  Each flavor takes its time in the spotlight and there isn’t one flavor that overwhelms. Simple yet lovely.  Lush Orange notes mingling with the tropical hints from the mango and papaya.  A really nice refreshing take on a citrus tropical iced tea for the summer or really for anytime!

Well done Tea Shirt!
