ingredients & lore
black tea, mango pieces, natural mango flavour and marigold flowers
Mangoes originated in Southeast Asia, where they had been cultivated for over 4,000 years. Since their discovery, mango groves have spread to many parts of the world, though mostly the tropical and sub-tropical climates. There are over 1,000 different varieties of the mango plant in existence, and India alone produces half of the world's supply. Mangoes are used widely in the culinary world, from sweet sticky rice, to delicate chutneys, to spicy and savoury pickles. It's also an important part of non-food life in several cultures; both the fruit and leaves are used for decoration, religious ceremonies and weddings.
