Spring break special! Teajo’s mango Assam

Wake me up, before you mango-go...

Wake me up, before you mango-go…

The only thing better than tea is, of course, free tea.

Since Teajo is offering free Assam samples for new members, you can bet your pot that I jumped on it like Renly Baratheon at a Chippendale’s fest. Next thing I know, the Assample is at my doorstep and begging to be tasted. Fast shipping–plus the company has been nothing but warm and welcoming over the ‘Net.

Enter high hopes.

Hello my dear, pleasure to make your acquaintance.

Hello my dear, pleasure to make your acquaintance.

First impressions! Peachiness. Mango and peach are sister fruits, and here I could have sworn this was a peach-based blend by the smell alone. In fact, this particular peach smell is exactly like strep throat medicine, right down to the alcoholic astringency at its core. If I had been sniffing this stuff in a store, I’d have put it right back on the shelf.

Dare I take a sip?

Dare I take a sip?

In the cup, however, poof! Nasty peach vanishes, and it goes smooth all the way down. The mango comes out to play–literally. It’s a light, playful sort of tea, as if someone enthusiastically took you by the hand to show you something new and interesting. The flavor of the Assam itself isn’t the focus at all. Rather, it’s mango hitting you first and foremost in the nose and mouth, with the black tea coming in if you just sit back and wait for a moment. The two parts work together; Assam as a neutral base that grounds the invigorating mango.

In short, this tea says, “Let’s go on an adventure!–But first, pack clean socks.”

    Good mango tea is quite possibly one of my favorite things in the known universe. Maybe the unknown universe as well.

      Then you’ll just have to come over and taste it, won’t you?
