Mango Peach from Gypsy Soul Tea . . . .

Most fruity herbal tisanes are either too sweet for me, uninteresting when it comes to the flavor combos, and/or incorporate way too much tarty hibiscus for my liking. But I have to give credit where credit it due. Mango Peach from Gypsy Soul Tea – a lovely Etsy Shop – you will have to check out! It was completely up my alley!

Ingredients in this fruity herbal include: apple, hibiscus, pineapple, peach, papaya, and lemon peel. The apple and peach seemed to pair up, the pineapple and papaya are no stranger to flavor pairings, and the lemon really added that extra something to this fruity cuppa. The hibiscus was there but not overpowering – thankfully! When it came to the aftertaste it seemed like everything came full circle, too, because the apple and the lemon rounded everything out at the end.

I didn’t see that there were actual mango pieces in the loose mixture of ingredients nor did I see mango in the list of ingredients BUT the mango could just be the additional natural flavor(ings) that the product description nodded at and I’m ok with that because this was a flavorful, fruity, cup! It was pretty good hot but even better cold! It was sweet enough the way it was but also had those stereotypical tropical fruit flavors, too, so it seemed to take me to a different time and place…more specifically a warm, sunny island instead of the wintery-cold mess I’m currently stuck in where I live which is one of the snowbelts of the US.

Here’s the scoop!

Green Treasures from Gypsy Soul Tea

With having such a stressful work week, I grabbed this tea hoping it would be comforting and soothing.

First thing I noticed was the amazing dry scent the leaves had. Tropical with a hint of strawberry.

Brewed up and allowed to steep for about 4 minutes, this tea yielded a gorgeous brew that was a lovely golden color. I allowed the tea to cool for a few minutes and sat back, holding the cup, enjoying the moment.

My first sip yielded a faintly flavored green tea that left me wanting another sip.  There was also a mouth drying factor as well. What was really nice about this tea blend is the mix of green teas are the star, not the additional flavorings.  The additional inclusions and flavorings are a nice side note that subtly give a sweet factor that heightens the somewhat vegetal notes that the green tea yields. This is an extremely interesting tea that is subtle and typically not one that would grab my attention but I can’t stop drinking the cuppa.

Overall, I think this tea would be a wonderful tea for someone that is looking for that subtle hint of flavor but really looking for a solid green tea. With this tea having a mix of different green teas, a solid green tea flavor is definitely what you get. I could just imagine that this tea would be dynamite as a shaken iced tea with a spring of mint or fruit slice.

So far I’ve had a few Gypsy Soul Tea offerings and they have all been pretty good. This one may be my least favorite so far but I’m liking the sound of this tea as a shaken iced tea. Maybe I just need to experiment a bit more!
