Teavana Mango Black Tea Lemonade (Starbucks) By @Cinabar
I think it is safe to say Mango is my favourite fruit. Its sweet and juicy, so it is my first choice as a fruit to snack on, and I love anything mango flavoured. As the weather seemed to be getting over the rainy patch we’ve just had, I popped into Starbucks to find a chilled drink. I spotted a new drink listed on the menu, and knew what I was going to pick; Teavana Mango Black Tea Lemonade.
The drink is served over ice, which I much prefer to ice crushed drinks which are always too cold for me in British weather, with the exception of some very hot days.
The drink sounds like it is packing quite a lot of elements in, mango, tea and lemonade. The drink arrived, with my name spelt wrongly on the side, but looking like a pale orange colour. I gave it a sip to test it out. The mango flavour is the most dominant, and the fact that it isn’t too sweet is down the addition of the black tea and lemonade. Although the lemonade element isn’t fizzy, I enjoyed the sharper citrus flavour it gave, as it added a nice lemon tang. The black tea was more difficult to pick out, but there was hint of leafy bitterness just rising in as an aftertaste. This gave the drink a more mature flavour. Mostly though this drink is gorgeous mango and that over ice was wonderfully refreshing on a warm day. Think sunshine in a cup.
