A modern fusion of both white and green tea extracts, with natural mango and acai flavours, this is a great choice for those looking to update from the run-of-the-mill 'orange and mango' flavoured drinks.
While I expected the mango drink of this to be rather pleasant as I normally enjoy mango flavours, I found this to be lacking a little in flavour but still drinkable. As with the other flavours, the size of the bottle itself is great as sometimes a drink is either not enough, or it's too much and you feel like you have to finish it, often not enjoying it.
The fact that it is a healthy drink is definitely a bonus, but probably not enough to encourage me to buy this particular flavour
Well this ones was ok, nothing WOW in it to me. Certainly was not an update from your "run-of-the-mill" orange and mango drink at all.
This one left a gritty thick aftertaste in the mouth. Although it could have been my tastebuds tho.
Maybe this only should be drunk quickly and not slowly.
Can certainly taste the tea in it as you swallow the mouthful.
If your wanting something different to try, this would be my suggestion.
another good drink though once again the flavour wasnt quite as strong as i hoped. the mango was there in a most subtle hint but the acai showed no real presence at all. the slightly dry bitterness was less pronounced, and that was a good saving grace. I cant speak about the health benefits because there are no short term effects but the flavour was about what i expected for a healthy tea based drink. not too bad but a little underwhelming for me.
I regret to say that not even being made into a sorbet saved this one for me. The flavour was flat and slightly bitter, undoubtedly from the high concentration of healthy polyphenols but all too subtle flavour of the mango. I couldn't detect even a hint of the acai, but then I have always had trouble tasting all but the strongest of berries for some reason.
In short, not my kettle of fish I am sorry to say, for I had very high hopes for this one, as I really enjoy the taste of mango juice.
Like the others in this range, this drink is rich in polyphenols, fibre and has a healthy ORAC value too. However, in my opinion, the taste of this was a 'dry and lacking' flavour.
The 'dry' taste of the polyphenols came through too soon and the mango flavour was somewhat lacking the carry through over the palate. The mango flavour was a little too subtle for my taste. Perhaps this is best sculled chilled rather than linger on the taste-buds.
Again the White tea with a splash of green tea confused the picture and the Acia, of which I was hoping for physical amounts was little more than a flavour rather than as a freeze dried powder or even a spray dried powder, so no nutritional benefits can be claimed there either - which is a shame, because Acia is attracting attention as a superfood and it could have been a good coup to get a white tea and acia drink out rather than just using a flavour.
However, in the overall picture, the developers of this drink have put some thought into it by releasing something rich in the polyphenols.
Whilst this was not my favourite of the bunch thus far (and I have one to go at the time of writing) it is certainly a drinkable product.
Though I am an avid fan of Mango, the 'tea' aspect of this drink had me cautious... almost TOO cautious as it turned out, because it wasn't until I was nearly at the bottom of the bottle did I slow down enough to really let the taste seep through and register properly - and I am glad that I did.
The downside of testing a drink such as this right when Summer is starting to get it's hooks into us, is that the 'oh please dear god, give me something, anything, liquid and COLD!' effect of the weather had me guzzling it back too fast to really appreciate the full flavour until it was almost gone. This would have been such a pity, as the drink itself is delightful!
The mango flavour comes through nicely, without drowning out, or being drown out by, the acai and tea flavours, which add some interesting complex tones to the beverage. I still found the strange, almost "red wine dry aftertaste" to be there, but it wasn't quite so strong this time - I suspect because of just how thirsty I was, and how cold I had chilled it, I just didn't really notice it much.
Overall, though these drinks aren't about 'instant results and energy boost' they certainly are refreshing and tasty, unique and very appealing... and only time will tell if there are any measurable long-term benefits. Regardless of this, on the effects and results they promise, this one clearly seems to deliver on it's hype, in that it's delightful to drink! I would be very curious to see if this could be turned into a Gelato or Sorbet successfully... (Subtle hint to Giapo! )
