drank Mango Green Organic by Harmony
224 tasting notes

A neighbor was gifted this collection of Harmony Organic Teas and regifted it to me. It was a pretty collection of their teas that look like books on a shelves in cardboard boxes with 10 bags each in side. The outer package still had the sticker from Marshalls/TJMaxx.

I have had a few of these teas so far and have been underwhelmed. The envelop for the tea bag is plastic coated paper. The tea bag itself is a flimsy paper bag resembling a paper towel. The the leaf is tiny, tiny dust particles.

I steeped this one in 195F water for 4 minutes as recommended. There is a slight aroma of mango while steeping, definitely not strong. It has a clear pretty yellow/brown coloring. The tea does have a mango flavoring to it but definitely not overpowering. I think I taste it because I’m anticipating it to be there. There is more grassy flavor than anything else. It feels rough on the back of my throat. Over all, I’m disappointed in the tea and probably will use it to make ice teas or try my hand at tea infused spirits.

Flavors: Grass, Mango

Bio

In the early 2000’s, my brother worked for a grocery company that removed items from the shelves and I ended up with a cabinet filled with random tea.

After I finished that cabinet, I started trying new things and exploring the world of tea. Still exploring, still learning, and loving this community.

I tend to take my tea with no additions and quite hot. Though often I find myself having to reheat my mug due to distractions. I’m partial to herbals, white tea, green, and blacks. But I really will try anything once.

Rankings:
100-80 Love in varying degrees
79- 60 Good, but in the friendzone
60-50 Ok, would drink if offered
49-20 Don’t make me try it again!
19-0 Didn’t finish!
