This morning I enjoyed another perfect cup of tea from Republic of Tea. This delightful little blend came to me as a single sample pack, but after an enjoyable first tasting I will be purchasing a full tin very soon!
Mango Ceylon comes neatly packaged in Republic of Tea’s round, natural, unbleached teabags. The teabag itself smells of sweet, tangy mango. Once brewed, the tea liquor actually smells slightly malty with a tiny hint of fruit.
This is a simple tea with three basic ingredients, one of them being sunflowers. This tea was also effortless to prepare – use boiling water and steep for 3 minutes. The brilliant tea blenders at Republic of Tea also created a decaffeinated version of this flavor, so it is just as suited to a nice evening cuppa before bed.
Republic of Tea describes this tea as:
This favored tea is light, sweet & intoxicating fragrant. Mango & sunflower blossoms are blended with superior Black tea leaves to produce an uplifting cup. A favorite retreat for coffee lovers. Wonderful served hot or over ice.
This tea certainly is uplifting! The first taste is fruity with a nice, full body. It has a pleasant astringency with a palatable malty finish. I’ve found that it is best with a small amount of milk and sweetener, although too much milk lessens the beautiful mango flavor. This tea is divine as a juicy morning wake-up cup.
I sure am fortunate that this was my random choice for the first cup of tea this morning. It will leave you with a lingering cheerful note to carry you through the start of your day!
