Organic Mango Rooibos

compostable-tea-packaging-1.jpg

This Fair Trade Certified organic herbal tea combines organic rooibos (pronounced ROY-bus) with the essence of tropical mango for a tropical loose leaf infusion. The apricot-like notes of the rooibos help to accentuate the mango, so that the blend tastes even more like mangos than it smells! Rooibos is an herb native to the beautiful Cederberg region of South Africa and contains no caffeine.

Ingredients: organic South African rooibos, organic mango, organic calendula petals and natural mango flavor

What are Flavored Teas?

Our delicious flavored teas use the same top-quality organic tea that we offer in our unflavored varieties, but are blended with pieces of real fruit, spices, flowers, and 100% natural flavors. When blending our teas, our goal is to create a cup that balances the taste of the tea with the flavors of the additional ingredients so that neither one overpowers. All of the natural flavors we use are either extracts taken directly from the botanical ingredient, or extracted using 100% GMO-free grain alcohol as a solvent. You can rest assured that none of the flavors used in our blends are synthetically or artificially derived, and do not use artificial preservatives.

Steeping Instructions

At Arbor Teas, we believe tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. We’re happy to make recommendations to get you started, but don’t hesitate to experiment! When brewing your tea, your main considerations are tea quantity, water temperature, and steeping time. We recommend herbal and rooibos teas to be steeped for 5 to 7 minutes in water heated to a full rolling boil. For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible, and avoid overboiling. If you want a stronger brew, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!

Health Benefits

Rooibos (aka “red tea”) boasts an array of beneficial health properties. Like true tea, rooibos has a high concentration of antioxidants, and is the only known source of aspalathin, a particularly potent antioxidant. Green rooibos tends to have even higher levels of antioxidants than red rooibos, but both have enough to measurably raise the levels of antioxidants in the blood. Rooibos is also rich in flavonoids; compounds likely to have anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic and antimicrobial benefits. Lastly, rooibos is low in tannins, making it less bitter than true tea.

    Mango Rooibos

    Posted by Martha Carlson on 6th May 2019

    Not good - too bitter and definitely not enough mango. Rooibos needs much more of another flavor added because it doesn’t taste good by itself.

    Rooibos + fruit = delicious!

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Mar 2017

    I have found rooibos is perfect for fruity favors, especially blueberry and this won't disappoint you. Makes a great iced tea without sweetener. The mango could be more pronounced, perhaps a little honey would give it a boost. Otherwise as is, it tastes peachy.

    Flavorful versatile tea

    Posted by Michelle S on 12th Dec 2015

    This version of Rooibos is my favorite. I drink it during the summer as a flavorful iced tea and in the winter as a warm tea. When I serve it for guests they always rave about it - combine aroma and flavor. My 7-year old son asks for it all of the time.

    horrible aftertaste

    Posted by Jo on 22nd Apr 2015

    I don't know if I just don't like rooibos, or if it's the 'flavored' part of this that made it seem so nasty, but it is still sitting in the canister in my kitchen a year later. Both my son and I, who are avid iced tea drinkers, can not handle the 'fake' taste that we agree it contains. He is a big mango fan, too, but definitely not in tea, it would seem.

    Fantastic Blend

    Posted by JSL on 2nd Jan 2015

    I was a little skeptical trying a mango tea. I like mango, but usually don't prefer fruity teas. I was pleasantly surprised. And, this has now become my favorite tea. The mango is subtle and blends well with the rooibos. I enjoy it for my first cup of tea in the morning. I add a small amount of stevia to bring out the flavors. It is VERY pleasing. Thank you Arbor Teas!

    Good flavor

    Posted by Robin K. on 12th Dec 2014

    This tea brews up with a very strong apricot-like aroma, so I thought the taste might be overpowering. The flavor is not nearly as intense as the smell would lead you to believe. You can definitely taste mango, and it has a somewhat sour/lemony finish. I wasn't crazy over the lemony part. I did a second steeping though, and that was delicious! The sour note disappeared, but the mango taste was still apparent.

    Robust

    Posted by Rajan on 21st Mar 2014

    A very robust, invigorating tea and without caffeine to boot! Can't expect a better decaffeinated kick in the morning or afternoon.

    Pleasant surprise

    Posted by Yen-Wen C. on 10th Mar 2014

    The tea has a beautiful hint of mango and the small amount of flavoring cuts down the earthy taste of Rooibos tea. I find the balance pleasing! We do not need to add any sweetener at all! We love the tea! It goes very well with all kinds of desserts... It's a cup of easy going tea for any time of a day :)

    Lovely!

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Apr 2010

    A very nice well-balanced tea. You can really taste the mango. I love it and my six-year-old loves it too.
