ICED MANGO BLACK is a tea blend of organic, single-estate black tea and mango oil produced in-house. Sourced for smoothness of body and a balanced profile, the bud-rich black tea base is an ideal foundation for fresh mango.
At origin, the whole leaf tea is hand-plucked and skillfully processed to maintain intact leaves that extract more evenly than commodity teas used for similar blends (resulting in a richer "iced tea" flavor that balances the concentrated sweetness of mango). The distilled essence of dried mango makes for an enticing aroma of tropical fruit pulp that mixes seamlessly with cream or fruit juice for elevated signature beverage service.
We pack the tea into oversized, unbleached cellulose sachets that provide optimal breathing room for the tea to extract evenly. These sachets are also ideally portioned for pitcher-size servings (32 oz / 950 ml), making prep simple: just drop a pouch into a jug for overnight cold brew (our preferred method), or steep hot for added complexity before chilling. Tropical, hugely refreshing, and a summertime crowd pleaser. Serve it chilled with a slice of tart lemon and black tea ice cubes.
