Taster’s Review:

I love my Beacon Hill Tea Company’s monthly subscription box. Each  month you get 4 1 oz packages of a variety of teas for you to enjoy.  Some of them I love, some of them I don’t. What I love the most is the variety of teas I can now try that I never would have thought of trying before. This tea is a perfect example.

A decaffeinated version of a ceylon tea with mango.  A perfect tea for the spring/summer time. I brewed up this tea with the package instructions and then put to sphere ice “cubes” into a mason jar and finished the jar off with an orange slice. Can you save heavenly?

The tea is a lovely light fresh black tea with a creamy mango undertone.  All ingredients are allowed to shine.  The tea is amazingly refreshing yet simple. I love that. How simple the tea is. There isn’t a mix of complex flavors just fresh wonderful tea that make an amazing iced tea. I have tried this tea hot and it is pretty tasty but where this tea really shines is as an iced tea.

If you are looking for a great monthly tea box that provides you with a nice array of teas, then look no further. I love the variety the box provides and trying out teas that I never would have thought about trying before. Sure it is a bit more expensive than others but you do get quite a bit of tea that you can re steep for several sessions and infusions. So far I have been very happy with my subscription and don’t see myself cancelling anytime soon!

Taster’s Review:

Wow is it hot today.  Like crazy smoldering hot. The kind of hot that makes you feel icky and gross as soon as you step outside.  So today is a stay inside and catch up on projects sort of day.  Oh and drink lots of tea.  So that is my new plan.  Drink lots of tea and do some reviews.

I thought this would be a good one to start with. The dry leaves had a nice sweet mango fragrance that just called to be made up like an iced tea.  So that is exactly what I did.  Brewed this up like I would a traditional black tea (212F-3 min) and then allowed it to cool.  Added ice and took a sip.

Yum! Sweet tropical paradise.  This brewed as an iced tea had such a nice subtle sweet taste.  You could still taste the fantastic black tea base but there was a sweet mango flavor in there too.  This is a great simple mango black tea. Not a knock you in the face sort of mango, just hints of mango.  So nice.  I was very pleased.  This is exactly want I was wanting today.  I can’t wait to take the rest of the loose leaf I have and try this as a cold brew.  That is exactly what is accompanying me on my way to work tomorrow.  Can’t wait!

Another fantastic tea from Mountain Witch Tea Company.
