drank Mango by Harney & Sons
226 tasting notes

OMG….I don’t even want to know how long it’s been since I’ve reviewed a tea…wouldn’t be surprised if it’s around this time last Winter.

I got this tea as a Christmas present from my uncle, a pleasant surprise, as I didn’t know he knew I was a tea drinker. I had also gotten White Christmas Tea, and Raspberry Black tea from Harney, as well as a nice teapot set in silverplate with a beautiful tray. I going to have to have myself a little tea party soon to break it in.

On to this tea:
Opening the tin, out comes a sharp, sweet mango-y scent that makes me almost impatient to get this brewed so I can drink it. While, as usuall…I am not sure I would want more of this after the tea is gone, I think at the very least I will enjoy this tin. Slightly astringent, but not at all unpleasant…my misgivings have more to do with the fact that I am not sure I would reach for this one very often.But I don’t know, the end of this tin could be that I have to buy another.

Meh, using my kindle fire to write this review, and I can’t adjust the rating, so will have to wait til I am on my laptop this evening…I’m thinking somewhere in the high 70’s. like 77.

Bio

Currently 40 years old…

Been a tea lover for most of my life, though it’s only in the past? (5-8 years.) That I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea.

I like mostly blended teas in Black, White, and some Oolong. Sadly not much Green tea that I really like. And of course Herbal.

Rating Guide that I use, though I am not terribly consistent;)

100 Excellent
90-99 Very Good
70-89 Fair
50-69 The only teas that I am interested in in this rating are teas that I can buy locally, such as at a grocery store, fruit market, tea shop, etc. Or is fairly cheap/add on thru a website.
50 and Below No redeeming qualities whatsoever or is too much like a tea that I already have.

Some teas such as Constant Comment by Bigelow I still drink on occasion, it is one of my comfort teas from when I was growing up. Others are Perfect Peach, Mint Medley and Cozy Chamomile.

I am a bookworm, though I also enjoy art journaling/mixed media, making jewelry, spending waaaaaay to much time online…particularly bingeing various tv shows on Netflix and Hulu. Also various forums like this one (On and off.) Quora, Goodreads, Youtube and misc. others. If you see the nicknames Lynxiebrat/Lynxiegrl,Lynxiedove, Zaaron or Sarikcat, then drop me a message:)
