Mangoes and Strawberries together with a Sri Lankan mountain grown black tea for just the right touch of fruitiness. But where does the name come from?
You may be surprised to learn we did not pay marketing consultants or publicity experts to develop the name. No research firms or costly focus group testing. We came up with the name ourselves! What do you think about Strawbango Black, catchy, huh?
We could have given this fine black tea any name and no matter what we call it, you will love the flavors in perfect harmony with a touch of calendula added for a bit of anti-inflammatory benefits. Enjoy Strawbango Black as a start to your day or serve as an iced tea and see if others can guess the flavors.
Sri Lanka has a long history of tea growing, dating back to when the island was named Ceylon and Thomas Lipton was creating his brand of tea from plantations in the southern part of the island. Sri Lanka continues to be a very large exporter of tea. The humidity, cool temperatures and rainfall in the tea growing regions provide a climate ideal from producing high quality tea.
This tea is organically cultivated but has not pursued the requirements to be designated ORGANIC.
