Adagio Teas Mango Mate Tea

Country of Origin: Argentina
Leaf Appearance: small, dark green with strong fruity aroma
Ingredients: yerba mate tea, natural mango flavor, marigold flowers
Steep time: 3 minutes
Water Temperature: 150 degrees
Preparation Method: Breville One-Touch Tea Maker
Liquor: brassy gold

The dry leaves of this tea were incredibly aromatic. It wasn't exactly like mango fruit but reminded me very much of mango flavored Italian ice. The tea itself was woods and sweet with the mango coming through as mellow fruity notes. I enjoy yerba mate because it feeds my caffeine addiction but sometimes it can have a bitter edge that I find unpleasant. The mango flavoring in this blend tempered that astringency and gave the tea a smooth finish. I have a feeling that this tropical blend would be just as great if it were iced. I would definitely recommend this tea.
