Surprisingly good! Though the flavor is better than the aroma (which is a bit weak), this is among the best blends between fruit and black tea that I've tried. Very smooth, neither bitter nor overly sweet. There's the hint of raisin-like flavor, but it's also properly balanced and not dominant. This cup also provides a healthy buzz.

If I was a need-my-caffeine-every-morning junky, this is the kind of tea I could see myself drinking regularly to satisfy that need. At less than $10 for 50 bags, I may actually buy a container of this and leave it at work just because I like sharing. Also, I think people trying to switch from coffee to tea would find this tea a relatively smooth way to do that.

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.

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.
