I haven’t had a chance to hit up Teavana or David’s tea yet so I’m still relying on my supply of bagged teas. Tonight I decided to try Lipton’s Island Mango & Peach tea, one of their pyramid teas. According to the box it’s made with real orange leaves and lemongrass.
This is a new one! Use one bag per cup and steep for 7 – 10 minutes in ~71°C water.
Today’s tea also reminded me of home. Although I didn’t really like the smell, the taste of the mangoes brought back a lot of memories of home and Trinidad in general…and also a craving for real mangoes!
This tea had an almost sickeningly sweet scent that made me hesitate to drink it. After having a couple cookies, the last thing I wanted was to drink a super sweet tea 😕
Fortunately, the overly sweet smell wasn’t an indicator of the taste. Though it was easy to identify the mango in the tea, it was pleasantly fruity and not overly sweet 🙂
White tea is supposed to facilitate healthy teeth, gums and skin. I’ve only had one cup so I can’t be the judge of these side effects, but if I suddenly wake up with extra smooth skin and ridiculously shiny teeth, I’ll be sure to let you know 😉
Thanks for reading!
p.s. I’ve never had white before tonight, and honestly never new it existed! Glad I learned something new 🙂
What are you’re thoughts on white teas?
