stash-mangosteen.jpgThe Stash website describes this tea with the following: "A fragrant tea that blends naturally sweet and slightly citrus mangosteen with juicy pear flavor. With Matcha." The brew itself had a brighter green color than most of the green teas I have tried, I believe this can probably be attributed to the addition of the Matcha. The aroma leaves no doubt that this is going to be a fruit flavored green tea. I generally enjoy most teas with a bit of sweetener, but I did find that this one required much less as it has a natural sweetness to it. I guess I was most surprised that even with the addition of Matcha, this tea didn't have much of a green tea taste to it all. The mangosteen itself is front and center on this one.
When I first started experimenting with green teas, I found myself more likely to try ones that had similar flavor additions to other teas I enjoyed. What I have come to realize after sampling so many different types of green teas in the past few months is that contrary to my initial belief, green teas are now some of my favorites. I have had to realize though that just because a flavor combination works well with black, white or oolongs, it doesn't necessarily mean the same flavor will automatically lend itself to a great tasting green as well. It also holds true that some green teas I would have never thought would appeal to me based on description alone have turned out to be my favorites. While this one isn't necessarily one that I would drink as an every day tea, it definitely has a place in my tea cupboard
