Mango Magic (Black Tea) from Ahmad Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 2nd, 2016

I love this fruity-scented mango black tea that smells and tastes great! (No milk - ever!) Not even sweetener is needed. The super-strong black teabag can do 2-3 infusions easily!

Lady Grey from Twinings

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

I HATE Earl Grey - and Twinings is no exception - but Lady Grey I can somehow tolerate. Maybe it's the lemon mixed with the bergamot? Anyhow this one smells way better than it tastes and you do NOT want to add milk to it. I had it both with and without Splenda to see what it would be like. Meh.

Lemon Lift® Decaffeinated Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: ?????

37 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
Sep. 15th, 2014

Free in my office circa 2014. This "decaf" black tea with a hefty dose of citric acid (lemon juice?? I think not.) is available and drinkable but I would not go out of my way for it. We also have Bigelow's "Classic" green tea in the office. It's a step above Lipton-kick-your-ass black, but that's about it. No big w...

Mango Ceylon from Republic of Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 26th, 2014

I like the convenience of RoT's round brown tea bags - and Mango Ceylon is a fruity, good-tasting choice - but I much prefer the ginger peach. Makes a good iced tea.

Mango Maui Black Tea from Hawaiian Islands Tea Company

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 28th, 2014

Smells great - a strong fruity Mango/Tropical scent but doesn't taste nearly as good as it sounds/smells. In fact - if yuou sweeten it it is cloying and "fakey-mango".

I got this for free from my mother-in-law who visited Hawaii. I don;t think I'd go out of my way to seek this brand out, nor purchase it.

Too bad...

Dec. 3rd, 2013

Smells great - but had an unpleasant bitter aftertaste - even moreso than other mid-grade bagged black teas that i have tried. Meanwhile, the pineapple scent was delightful - too bad ot does not taste as good as it smells. Steeps quickly and brews-up dark!

Passionfruit from Adagio Teas

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5

Now I am thoroughly confused, as I thought this was a Shanti tea - but was informed that the Shanti Pasionfruit Black has been d/c'ed. Meanwhile...

I usually don't care for passionfruit - but I had a Delicious Iced Passionfruit Black tea - and man, was it good. Granted, it was the middle or summer - so this was a ...

Passionfruit Black from Shanti Tea

Jul. 3rd, 2013

I usually don't care for passionfruit - but I had a Shanti Iced Passionfruit Black tea - and man, was it good. Granted, it was the middle or summer - so this was a fruity, refreshing sip.
I don't think this tea is discontinued - as I just had it.

Black Currant from Tea Forte

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 13th, 2013

Super expensive (as all the cutesy-packaged Tea Forte teas are!) but so deliciously fruity and easy to drink. (You can get 2 cups easily out of a bag - so keep that in mind. Needs no sweetener. Very good for first-time tea drinkers and the adorable packaging (and high price) make it a suitable hostess gift. Fun. (S...

May. 5th, 2013

Not a fan of Bieglow Teas - but my old company had them and Lemon Lift was better (to me) than the dreaded "Constant Comment" - an orange/spice. Just OK. Not a fan. I actually like the I love Lemon herbal tea (which is a tisane and contains no tea at all) a bit better when I have a cold. This is a step about Lipton...

Ginger Peach Decaf from Republic of Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

94 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
May. 3rd, 2013

I love this tea - sweet, peachy (without tasting of artificial peach) and a whisper of ginger (slightly lemony when served hot). Great hot or over iced. A winner for me.
