Steeped in a Tea Forte Café Cup, with the spent tea pyramid resting on a Tea Forte tea tray, all the pieces were set to provide an enjoyable tasting experience of this mango flavored green tea. Impeccable as always, the packaging of this individual tea pyramid infuser bag was clean and sharply presented. After heating the water to the proper temperature, I proceeded to steep the tea for only two minutes before moving on to tasting it. The aroma is light, and the mango smell is lighter yet. My guess would be that the green tea base is a sencha or something akin to it.
The tea itself has light forward notes with a strong finish. The mango is present but not very prominent. Overall the tea is not very impressive in its taste. Not wanting to judge it by first try, I steeped a second cup. This time, I left the tea pyramid in the water for three minutes. The mango flavor is now a lot bolder and broader. It complements the green tea far more than during the first infusion.
Overall, I think this is not one of Tea Forte’s better blends. However, for lovers of fruit flavored green teas, it may be worth giving this one a try. On my personal enjoyment scale, I would rate it a 76/100.
It is possible that this tea has been re-branded as Tea Forte's Green Mango Peach.
