Review of Mango Ceylon

4 of 103 of 53 of 547 of 100

I had this from a teabag in Panera bread. It could be that it wasn't terribly fresh (I wouldn't put that past Panera) but I was disappointed by the weak black tea presence in this tea. Some people might like that though as this tea is very smooth and has very little bitterness or astringency. I took it as having no "kick" however. It's fruity and the aroma suggests sweetness but it just comes across as bland to me.

The fruit aspect is very pleasant, but not terribly complex...it has a slighty artificial-seeming quality, like fruity candy rather than real fruit. It lacks the piney complexity of the aroma of a fresh or even a good dried mango. But it's not unpleasantly artificial the way some teas are.

This tea is relatively inexpensive so I can't complain too much about the value. Overall I'm disappointed: Republic of Tea has much better teas.
