This tasty specimen is a sencha green tea blended with pieces of mango for a delightful aroma and taste. Sencha is a specific type of Japanese green tea, made without grinding the tea leaves – this distinguishes it from Macha, which is made from powdered tea leaves. “Sencha is said to have a bittersweet taste that goes well with both seafood and chocolate”.
The benefits of green tea are practically legendary at this point. It is said to benefit cardiovascular health, prevent cancer, bolster immune system functioning, enhance brain functioning, and protect the skin from aging and environmental damage. Along with its low caffeine levels, it contains a large quantity of strong, health-promoting antioxidants. This tea is wonderful either hot or iced, depending upon the season or your mood. Mangoes taste like a tropical island getaway, which is a good enough reason to add them to your diet, but they also have a number of health benefits, including being high in antioxidant vitamins A and C. Combined with the benefits of drinking green tea, mangoes make for a delicious, healthy and guilt-free beverage.
You’ll want to steep this tea for 1-3 minutes with 180-190 degree water for best results.
