Thursday Tea Time

Double feature this week!
The Republic of Tea Life of Pi Mango Black Tea

Cost:  $11.99 at Cost Plus World Market
Number of teabags:  50
Caffeine:  Yes
Type of tea:   Black
Steeping time:  5 minutes
Add ins:  Just a splash of Coffee Mate's Natural Bliss Sweet Cream.  It's quite good by itself, too.
Teabag fragrance:  Mango
Ingredients:  Black tea, apple bits, sweet blackberry leaves and natural mango flavor
Opinion:  Normally I don't really like fruity teas in the cooler months, but the Life of Pi tea just came out along with the Life of Pi movie.  Maybe it will taste better when the weather is warmer and/or iced.  Maybe the movie is better.  It had a nice mango scent, but I thought it had a strange aftertaste I couldn't quite put my finger on.  Not bad, just unexpected.  I also brewed two bags and had eaten earlier white chocolate peppermint popcorn.  Well, that could be it right there - there's an unexpected and strange combo!
