Starbucks Mango Black Tea Lemonade

This is officially known as the Shaken Iced Mango Black Tea Lemonade. The tea from Teavana was introduced on July 7th. I was actually at a Starbucks considering it at the time, but I was very fixated on trying a cold brew that day. To be honest, I was at a Reserve location, so I tend to stick with coffees there.

Fast forward to today -- ordered a venti for $3.95. Starbucks says the tea is shaken 10 times to unlock vibrant flavors. My drink was ready in 10 seconds. That's a quick-shaking barista I have here. Unless this tea had it's shaking done in the morning. The flavor really is unleashed on that first sip. Incredible flavor that really screams mango in my mouth. I will definitely re-order mango black tea lemonade after I go through my other favorite teas at Starbucks. Very rarely do I order the same tea on back-to-back visits. This one is tempting me. Maybe I'll go with mango black tea sans lemonade. :)

More info on this tea can be found on the Starbucks website.
