drank Mango Party by Wize Monkey
2867 tasting notes

I bought a little sampler pack of these with the condition that I finish them before the end of the month. I’ve been considering it for a while so when I saw the sampler pack for $7 in whole foods I decided to go for it.

Mango madness has been my favourite so far. Quite realistic mango flavouring, very creamy and aromatic. The coffee leaf base gives a similar roasted flavor as yerba mate. The juicy fresh mango flavor really comes out strong and it makes a good iced cup or hot (with or without milk).

It was good enough that I’m considering keeping this one in stock in my cupboard. It is low caffeine and I like the company. By providing income to coffee farmers the rest of the year (non coffee cherry/bean harvesting months) the farmers have a more secure yearly income and can afford to have fewer plants (less rainforest cut down) and spare income for food and whatnot. I like this principle and want to support alternative ways of supporting farmers.

Flavors: Fruity, Mango, Sweet, Tropical

Wize Monkey sent me a sample of their coffee leaf “tea” a couple of years ago and then I never heard of them again. Glad to know that they are doing well and have more flavors available! I’ll have to look out for this next time I’m in Whole Foods.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
