Recreating the sun-soaked heat and sweetness of Mexican cuisine, we’ve blended a base of malty Chinese black tea with pieces of juicy mango, pomegranate flowers and a pinch of chilli: a winning combination which struck gold in the 2012 Great Tastes Awards.
With a final flourish of Aztec Amaranth and a scattering of cactus blossoms it’s quite the Mexican fiesta – just add paper lanterns and a piñata.
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Best drunk without milk.
We went into Whittard and after trying this tea we decided to get some we love the sweet taste of mango with the kick of the chilli it's a lovely tea and will definitely be getting more

Good stuff! I love the sweet taste of mango and the kick of chilli gives this tea an interesting flavour. I would love to see another mango black tea, perhaps with coconut or vanilla and a hint of peach, or maybe some kind of toffee flavour. Any chance, Whittard?

I am a big fan of flavoured black teas an usually get them from a wonderful shop in London, but I saw these new ones in Whittard and thought I would give them a try. I have to say this is the best one so far, it has a nice subtle mango flavour with a lovely warming tingle of chilli.
