Thursday Tea Time

This week - Choice Organic Teas Decaffeinated Mango Ceylon Tea

Cost:  $4.29 at Whole Foods, I saw this brand recently at a Signature Kroger for $3.99; and I also believe some of the larger HEB's carry it.  I  Surprisingly, this flavor is not available in the decaffeinated version on their website.
Number of teabags:  16            
Caffeine:  No
Type of tea:   Black
Steeping time:  5 minutes
Add ins: Hot - a little teaspoonful of Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf's Fat Free, Sugar Free Vanilla Powder
Iced - Perfect as is!
Teabag fragrance: Fruity vanilla
Ingredients:  Naturally decaffeinated organic black tea, natural mango flavor and organic vanilla extract.
Opinion:  Nice!  As the weather warms up, I tend to go towards fruity flavors, seeking the perfect iced tea, but also wanting to enjoy something hot after dinner.  Bizarre quirk, but if it keeps me away from the ice cream...!  The mango-ness is fruity without being cloying or artificial, and the vanilla really punches it up.
