The Blue Mango. Even the name of this fruit sounds mysterious. Throughout recorded history the Blue Mango appears to have held many people in its sweet grasp. Included among them is an Indian writer named David Davidar who recently published a book called The House of Blue Mangoes. In it he describes the blue mango as, “astonishingly beautiful” and recounts how the fruit glints blue against the dark green leaves of the tree.
Blended with a sencha style green tea base, because of it smooth, sweetish taste with an almost honey like finish that truly enhanced the natural Mango flavoring. Interestingly, the base Sencha derives its smooth character from the way it is processed. The green tea leaves can be plucked from the same plants as black tea but forgo black tea’s fermentation process. Once they are plucked and chosen for green tea production, the leaves are immediately steamed and bruised either by machine or by hand. They are then pan fried or basket fired giving the tea its distinctive glossy look and feel. We think you’ll agree that the flavor profiles blended together in this tea are out of this world.
