Mango Green Tea .Adagio Teas

Adagio Teas 6$/4oz or $15/lb +S&H … cheap, but its mixed, flavored… tea.
ordered this along with the bottled teas,
just to see what mixed tea tastes like…
also mango is my favorite fruit (to eat, not to clean and slice every little bit from the pit.)

Dry:
smells good, maybe too pungent — additives?!
looks like some sort of flat green chopped up. with little bits of yellow mango.

Method: leaf + water @ 180 x 3min


dry leaf_________ infusion 1_______ in the cupwan_____infusion 2 _____ _ wet leaf

Liquor: yellow-green, second infusion dubiously fluorescent green.

Taste: a mild green astringency dominating + mild mango..ish?
<going to clean tongue, feel confused.>>
clean tongue — same — a bit confusing.
added sugar: brings more of the mango…ish taste to the tongue, not much green feel anymore.
the mango bits taste sort of like mango, without sweetness,
the leaves also contain some sort of flower petals?

Overall: its ok. smells better than tastes. would i get it again … eh… probably not.
