I’ve never tried any of Good Earth’s teas before but my local grocery store suddenly started carrying them and this flavour sounded unique and intrigued me. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect – I’ve never eaten the mangosteen fruit before so I have no idea what it smells or tastes like.
OMG the tea smelled almost exactly like fruit punch as it was steeping, I couldn’t believe it. I almost expected it to taste like fruit punch too – and it actually sort of did. It was fruity and moderatly sweet, but there was a bit of a tart bite at the end. This tea does have some hibiscus in it so I’d say that was the cause. I don’t think it’s really detrimental to the flavour though.
This is a tea that would be really good iced (in fact there are recommendations on the box to that effect. I can certainly imagine this tasting fantastic perhaps with a touch of agave nectar to sweeten it.
