Best part about Summers is the abundance of homegrown, luscious, sweet mangoes that are available. They are not only the King of Fruits but are loaded with vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, B & C, folate, copper etc. Infact, these nutrients are beneficial in pregnancy also as they help in fetal growth and development.
So, we at Divyntea thought of blending this versatile fruit with Green Tea & Oolong Tea to increase its health benefits and taste. Green Tea with Mango and mint is a refreshing blend which tastes great as an iced tea during summers. Oolong Tea with Mango & vanilla is a perfect dessert tea which keeps your sweet cravings at bay since vanilla has a natural sweetness to it and can be paired with almost all desserts. So, enjoy these limited edition teas till the Mango season is abundant and stock up so that you can enjoy this tea all year round!
Mango Green Tea Iced Tea
Mash some mangoes cubes. Brew Divyntea Green Tea Mango Mint tea in water, strain and cool. We suggest cold brew-add some tea leaves to room temperature water and let it steep for a few hours and then strain. Add the mashed mangoes to the tea, some ice cubes, mint leaves and serve chilled. We have not added any sugar to the tea since mangoes contain natural sweetness, but if you would like you can add some honey or sugar syrup.
Mango Green Tea Slush
Brew some Divyntea Green Tea Mango Mint in water, strain and keep aside. Blend some mangoes, mango tea, coconut water and lime juice in a blender. Store in the refrigerator, blend again before serving. Take a glass, make a rim of salt and pepper/chilli powder and add the mango slush. Serve garnished with lemon wedge or mint leaves.
Oolong Mango Sangria
Non-alcoholic- Brew some Divyntea Oolong Mango Vanilla Tea in water, strain and keep aside. Add lemon juice and top with lemonade.
Alcoholic- Brew some Divyntea Oolong Mango Vanilla Tea in water, strain and keep aside. Add some muddles mangoes and white wine to this mixture and let it stand in the refrigerator for a few hours to infuse before serving.

Oolong Mango Granita
Brew some Divyntea Oolong Mango Vanilla Tea in water, strain and keep aside. Blend some mangoes, mango tea, grated fresh ginger, pinch of sea salt and lime juice in a blender.
