Mango Green Tea Loose Leaf Tea Blend by Coastal Tea Company (Review)

As the weather gets cooler, and as I am on my third cold in the last 2 months (my daughter started Kindergarten and my husband works in a busy hotel restaurant, so I am assuming we have a lot of germs here), I like to enjoy a nice cup or 2 of tea per evening before bed. I generally enjoy an herbal or mint tea as it is soothing to my digestion. I recently was sent a loose leaf tea for review, in exchange for my honest opinion. I always prefer loose leaf over a bagged tea.

The Mango mint tea is by Coastal Tea Company and was quite surprising to me. I was at first hesitant to try it. Although I love mango, peach (yes there are hints of peach!) and mint, I did not envision the flavors to meld well. There are dried chunks of a candied mango inside the pouch of tea. The mint flavor is very light and crisp. Luckily it is not a spicy or strong mint flavor. The flavors work well together. I would have liked more peach flavor, as I detected the other 2 flavors more. I also would have preferred the peach to have been dried pieces as well, instead of "flavoring oils."

I do want to mention that the stock photo shows the mango pieces to be more of a true orange toned mango color, when in reality, they are more grey.  I enjoy this tea with natural raw honey after brewing it with my metal strainer.  Please excuse the small pieces floating in my cup, it seems some pieces of tea are small enough to pass through my strainer.

This is a loose leaf, low caffeine, sencha green tea blended with dried mango pieces, peach flavoring oils, and dried mint leaves. It is said to be naturally flavored with no artificial ingredients.  It comes in a paper bag with a nice secure seal for ultimate freshness.  I like the width of the bottom of the bag that allows for storing on the shelf.  The "best by" date is stamped on the back of the bag.

I like the tea and recommend it.  I would have preferred there to have been dried peaches in the tea in addition to the mango.
