Origin: Blended Leaf Type: Green Sencha Tea with Flower Petals and Flavouring Taste: Exotic mango with bergamot Drink: Without milk Brew: Lightly, 2-3 minutes according to taste with water off the boil When to drink: Throughout the day
Mango and Bergamot Loose Tea is a sophisticated aromatic green tea blend, perfect for an afternoon indulgence.
Green Sencha tea leaves are used as the base of this blend. Originally from Japan, the leaves are picked in early spring and steamed and rolled to keep their colour and verdant herb-like taste. They have been combined here with petals and the flavour of mango, lulo and a gentle hint of bergamot to create a decadent and delicious blend.
Mango and Bergamot is a flavour-packed naturally sweet green tea that does not need milk or sugar.
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and use freshly drawn water which is heated to around 80 degrees. You can either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for a few minutes afterwards. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Should be drunk without milk.
This is one of the nicest teas I've ever had. It's fruity and light. I've recommended it to everyone and intend to buy stocks of it for myself.
Not a replacement for Green Earl Grey :(

It was suggested that I should order this tea instead of my favourite, Green Earl Grey Tea. I cannot see how this tea possibly could be a substitute for the lovely Green Earl Grey. Taste is not bad but smell is overpowering and far too perfumed.
Please bring the Green Earl Grey back!

This tea is very nice indeed. I drink it on my morning tea break and sometimes again in the afternoon. In contrast to another review, I personally wouldn't liken too closely to Earl Grey. Whilst it does contain bergomot, the dominant flavour is that of the mango in my opinion; it's therefore more of a fruit than a citrus flavour that comes through. Indeed, the taste and smell of mango dominates for me.

I was very disappointed with this tea which I purchased having previously tried the Earl Grey Green Tea, which does not now seem to be available. It smells like furniture polish, though the taste is not quite as bad. Not again I'm afraid, but it is the only Whittard tea I would say this about. Shame, I purchased 2 packets on the basis of an earlier review! You live and learn.
