Company Description:

A Green tea blend called SENCHA FINE from Japan with all natural Vanilla & Mango flavoring. Think of swinging ever so gently on a canvas hammock, one leg draped off the side. A warm breeze blowing across the lagoon of an exotic island with the smell of mango in the air, as you sip away your worries…

Taster’s Review:

This is a very unusual tea – and I mean that in a very good way.  Mango and vanilla are two flavors that I wouldn’t ordinarily think about putting together, but this combination of mango, vanilla and Japanese Sencha tea creates an almost seamless flavor that is not exactly vanilla or mango or green tea.  It’s like a new flavor that I’ve not really encountered before today.

It’s really delicious!

The green tea offers a fresh and somewhat vegetative nature to the blend.  I can also note a slight buttery essence to the tea, which I would attribute to the Sencha as well.  The mango is sweet and fragrant – as is the vanilla.  The vanilla also offers a creamy taste and texture to the cup, while the mango offers its distinctive fruit flavor to it.

These qualities mesh together so well that it’s difficult to distinguish one flavor from another.  The result is a smooth, rich flavor that glides over the palate like a beautiful, elegant dance executed so well that it appears effortless.

This tea is really, truly YUM and I want more.
