Taster’s Review:

Oh YUM!  This Cranberry Mango Green Tea from Zen Tea is oh-so-delicious!

The contrast between the cranberry and mango is fantastic!  This cup is at once sweet, tart, fruity, and of course, mildly invigorating with a lovely green tea lushness that I’m finding absolutely captivating.

I recommend letting this tea cool just a minute or two after pouring the cup, when it’s still right from the teapot hot, the flavors seemed to be hiding.  But after a minute or two, the flavors really POPPED!

I’m loving the fruit flavor here.  This tastes like authentic cranberry and mango – its not that artificial, chemical kind of fruit taste that some teas possess.  The mango tastes sweet and juicy, like a fresh, ripe mango!  Pair that with the robust tartness of the cranberry and BAM!  You have a really delightful combination of fruits that work amazingly well together.  Mango and cranberry are two flavors I wouldn’t have ordinarily thought of combining, but they work astonishingly well together!

And the green tea is not hidden in this blend either.  The Chinese green tea tastes sweet, a little creamy (as if it were “kissed” with just a touch of butter) and slightly vegetative.  I wouldn’t call it a grassy vegetative taste, more like the taste of steamed vegetables … but, a very mild vegetable … and the taste is very subtle.  If you’re one who tends to shy away from green teas because of the sometimes aggressive vegetative taste … I’d recommend trying this one.  The vegetative taste here is delicate.

This is really good – one that I’ll want to stock up on when it gets warm out … it’s going to make an AWESOMELY refreshing iced tea!
