Red Mango Probiotic Iced Tea: I’m a Fan
Fro-yo girl here. Yes, I’m reviewing the new Red Mango probiotic iced tea because it’s the tea that thinks it’s fro-yo. And no, the tea doesn’t contain fro-yo (too bad?). Introduced July 27 and available year-round, Red Mango probiotic iced teas are all natural and good for you (just like their fro-yo).
I don’t actually like iced tea (I prefer hot tea) but I do enjoy cold pearl tea. I wasn’t sure how much I’d like the new probiotic iced tea. I tried “Mysteaque” ($2.75 for 16 ounces, $3.25 for 24 ounces). The tea was hand shaken with ice cubes and poured into a signature cup. It’s frothy on top.
Mysteaque is a blend of fresh black tea, natural cane sugar, vanilla, citric acid and probiotics. The first sip reminded me of something but I couldn’t put my finger on it. It later occurred to me that Mysteaque reminds me of pearl tea. It’s balanced, clean, smooth and refreshing: not too sweet, has a strong but not bitter tea flavor and a delicious bourbon vanilla flavor. They didn’t put too much ice in my cup either. The tea went perfectly with my tofu sandwich. I bet it would be good with tapioca balls too (but then it would no longer be healthy and low cal). Love Mysteaque!
Flavors: Lemonocity, Mysteaque, Fanteasia
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
