Blue Mango Iced Tea by Adagio Teas
Herbal Infusion / Flavoured
$8.00USD for 6 pouches (2.1oz)
Adagio Teas has provided me with Blue Mango Iced Tea for the purposes of writing an honest review.
It’s still summer weather here (hello, tail end of another heat wave!), so having some iced tea in the fridge is always a good idea. When Adagio Teas asked me about trying out some of their iced teas, I wasn’t able to turn it down. I do enjoy something thirst quenching. Blue Mango Iced Tea comes in a sealed, resealable pouch.
Blue Mango Iced Tea comes pouches filled with the herbal tea blend. There are 6 pouches per bag, making it 2.1oz (~60g) of tea (it’s approximately 0.35oz, or ~10g, of tea per pouch). Blue Mango Iced Tea consists of: lemon grass, butterfly pea flower, rose hips, chamomile flowers, natural mango flavour, mango pieces, marigold flowers and lychee flavour. The aroma is very heavy of lemon grass and chamomile. The mango is more of a background aroma.
Adagio Teas’ steeping instructions for Blue Mango Iced Tea are to place in refrigerator over night, with 1 pouch per quart (1 quart = ~1L). I opted to pop the pouch into an pitcher with room temperature water and then into the fridge overnight.
Blue Mango Iced Tea cold steeps to a deep blue colour. The aroma is mostly lemongrass and chamomile. The mango is more of a background fragrance. The flavour is primarily lemon grass, chamomile, with hints of mango in the background. It does have a refreshing quality to it, beautiful blue colouring from the butterfly pea flower, and the mango is just lingering in the background.
A Second Cup?
As the pouch of tisane was steeped overnight, I opted not to attempt a resteep given the nature of it being an herbal infusion. But look at how the beautiful the butterfly pea flower is when it opens.
My Overall Impression
I liked Adagio Teas’ Blue Mango Iced Tea. It’s easy to use as it’s measured out already, steeps to a beautiful blue colour, and has a refreshing flavour to it.. I liked the flavour of the lemon grass and the chamomile, but I do wish that the mango was stronger. It’s quite a background note in comparison the lemon grass, which is a much stronger flavour than the mango. I did enjoy Blue Mango Iced Tea, and the colour is a lot of fun.
