I just realized that “Socra Tea” sounds like “Socrates”, which is why an old Greek statue is this company’s logo. I’ve had SEVERAL cups of tea from them, and THIS NEVER OCCURRED TO ME UNTIL JUST NOW. Clever. Perhaps a little TOO clever.
Anyway, this morning I hit the gym hard, and needed something refreshing afterward, so I decided to hit up Cranberry Mango green, iced.
And oh yum. The sweetness of the mango is balanced out by the tartness of the cranberry. The green base is perky, a teensy bit vegetal but mostly just spring-y.
This would be the perfect thing if you were babysitting some kids at a park on a summer morning. You’d be like, “Ahhhhhh… Easy on the slide, kids… Yum… Guys, stop hitting each other… Tasty… STOP STANDING ON THE SWINGS. SIT. BUNS ON THE SEAT.”
As you can see, I am a tea connoisseur as well as an A+ babysitter. I can do it all. And so can you, with this delicious treat.
Here’s the scoop!

I wouldn’t say I was an exceptional HISTORY student back in the day but the topics I was interested in I tended to research extensively. One of the topics I enjoyed not only in HISTORY but in GEOGRAPHY was AMAZONS and THE AMAZON. So when I saw Mango Amazon TEA from The Tea Can Company of course I had to try it for myself!
I may be a tad obsessed with Amazons. By Amazons – I mean the female warriors – known throughout history. I was a fan of Xena. Heck, I even ‘belonged’ to an online small group about 15 years ago of all females who made up a modern day ‘tribe’ that not only were friends but ‘sisters’ who shared our real daily lives with each other – as well as – wrote an ongoing story based around Amazon Living. I know – I know – it’s kind of nerdy – but – if you have been around The Sororitea Sisters for any amount of time – you already know that many of us are nerdy in one way or another and we tend to be pretty proud of that.
I also really appreciate THE AMAZON for all of it’s glorious beauty and wonder. The Amazon Rain Forest, The Amazon Jungle, The Amazon Basin…you name it…I appreciate it! The animals, the plant life, the scenery, the history! I hate to see the deforestation happening but that is for another day and another post.
I know I went off on quite a tangent here but when I drink tea I have several things that go through my mind. I have a lot of different associations with each tea whether it be because of the name, the flavor, the ingredients, the story behind it, the place the ingredients hail from, etc.
I really like Mango Amazon from The Tea Can Company for these and many other reasons. To get to the actual flavor part of the review I will say that the Mango in this flavored black tea isn’t over done but it is done nicely. Pair that with the floral flavors of the Marigold and the pucker of the Passion Fruit and you have something pretty darn special here!
The sweet to floral flavor combo is pretty even-steven and I think the passion fruit gives it a bitter of pucker which is nice and needed to make this flavor come full circle! It black tea base is a medium strength black tea but the flavor combo is what shines here – and the flavors all mesh well – they aren’t too over powering and done very nicely! For a trip back in time or to another place without leaving the comfort of your home give Mango Amazon from The Tea Can Company a try – it certainly made my day!
