Taster’s Review:

A tea friend sent some of this tea my way, and I was only too glad to try it!  I love mango, and I love spicy teas, and this green tea seemed to offer both.  When I first opened the package, I was blown away with how delicious it smelled.  It reminded me of Thai food:  savory, sweet and spicy!  YUM!

The flavor is a bit of a surprise, actually!  It’s spicy, but it isn’t as hot as I thought it might be.  The spiciness is tempered by the sweetness of the mango and also the green tea, to give the cup a savory element.  It’s not a sweet tea which typically a mango tea is.  At the same time it’s not too spicy, instead I’d call it a mild-to-medium heat that builds gradually, and it offers a pleasant kick that lingers in the aftertaste.  I think that the spicy and the sweet have met together somewhere in the middle to provide a surprisingly savory cup that is absolutely mouthwatering!

I really love this.  Unfortunately, I was not able to find it on the Gurman’s website nor was I able to find it on the Nedas website.  That’s a bummer because this one is good, one I’d like to revisit again someday!
