So much fun to break out the new herbals/fruit blends one by one!
Even though I’d never tried this one, I bought a big honking bag of it. I was feeling lucky and brave, and I also haven’t ever really had a fruit blend I couldn’t at least tolerate, so I figured it was worth a shot. Plus, if it was really good, I figured the BF would want some too being a mango fan. And what with the general need to seriously “overleaf” with these types of blends, I just went with it.
There’s a great mango/general fruit smell coming out of the big chunky dry mix that makes me want to eat it.
The mango is a bit overpowered by the other ingredients in the steeped blend’s aroma, particularly the hibiscus. It’s not that the mango isn’t there, it’s just that it isn’t as strong as I’d hoped. But sometimes with blends like this, the flavor varies from cup to cup depending upon what big hunks end up in your cup on a given day. So it may be different another time.
The flavor mimics the aroma in that the mango is there, but it could be stronger. The ingredients say there’s only mango flavor. I’m wondering why there’s no dried mango?
Anyway, it’s fine — and while it doesn’t live up to its name quite as well as the berry of yesterday, I’ll have no trouble polishing off this humongous bag.
Flavors: Citrus, Hibiscus, Mango
