Tea of the day: Mango Maui Black Tea by Hawaiian Islands Tea Company
Description: Perhaps our most popular tea! Mango Maui is a smooth, black tea enhanced by the tropical flavor of mangoes reminiscent of Maui’s warm sun-kissed beaches. A delightful tea to serve hot or iced.
Smells like mango. Sweet, ripe delicious mango, with an underlying strong and rich scent of black tea
Smells much the same steeped, even stronger mango smell though
Liquor is a rich chestnut-brown in the cup
Tastes like mangos, filling the mouth with sweetness, even before sugar. There is a bitter aftertaste before adding sugar, though, which leaves a slightly dry mouthfeel
Adding sugar significantly cuts down on the bitterness, and makes it even more fruity
Tea Rating: 3/5
Today, I’m writing to inform you all of a wonderful fantasy book that is currently available for pre-order for just $2.99 (for the e-book edition), called 1001 Islands, by K.T. Munson
The official release date is 8/22/2015, and here is the back of the book, just to give you all a taste of what’s to come
“The sliver of moonlight cast eerie shadows across the deck of The Dark Revenge. The Silence at the helm stood embracing the obscurity. His foreboding presence matched the anticipation aboard the ship, and no one spoke for fear they would break the stillness that encompassed them.
Tonight, everything changed.
The Dark Revenge gained on the Regatta. The raiders said nothing but he could hear the shuffle of taut female clothing and the tension in the air. It hadn’t sensed their existence, and drifted like heedless prey. Princess Roxana slept, unsuspecting of what was hunting her in the inky blackness of the night.
There was only one thing on the minds of The Silence’s crew as they drew near; Hang the Kings, Crown the People.”
And, as you can see, the absolutely gorgeous book cover
