THE STORY OF LAST MANGO IN PARIS

Introducing an herbal tea that's sure to make as big a splash as Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci's 1972 film, Last Tango in Paris. If you haven't seen the film, suffice it to say that when it was released it was met with so much steamy controversy that Bertolucci was handed a 4 month suspended prison sentence by an Italian court. The court also ordered that all copies of the film be destroyed! As you might have guessed, we can't really go into the nuts and bolts of the film which chronicles the sexual escapades of an American widower, played by Marlon Brando and the object of his affection, a Parisian woman many years his junior. What we can tell you is that the film, like a pot of this herbal tea, is hot stuff!

Last Mango in Paris shares the same racy sentiment as the groundbreaking piece of cinematic revelry. The tea blends the sultry character of fresh tropical mango with sexy hibiscus, elevating elderberry, sultry orange, arousing apple and racy rosehips. The resulting cup is sure to get your motor humming with its round notes of musky mango intertwined with soft berry juiciness and delicate flower petal sweetness. (Thankfully, no one was ever convicted of blending delicious teas.)

Like the famous "city of lights" that shares its name, caffeine free, Last Mango in Paris is a pure delight anytime of day or night. So if you're looking to heat things up on a cool winter's afternoon in, brew it up nice and hot and enjoy under the covers with that special someone! Or, if the temperature rises, your heartbeat begins to climb and no lover is in sight, cool yourself off by pouring the freshly brewed tea over ice. Either way, you'll never forget your first time! 

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with water brought to a rolling boil (85 degrees Celcius) for 3-7 minutes.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 7 minutes.  Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher.  Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add lemon and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 7 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves.  Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Add lemon and sweeten to taste.

NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves.  Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion.  Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
