Information:
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! Ooh la la! 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, ahem, affection, a Parisian woman many years his junior. What we can tell you is that the film, like a pot of herbal tea, is hot stuff! Phew!
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! Go ahead, brew a pot, put in a DVD, draw the curtains and get ready for some excitement!

Hot tea brewing method: Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 2 teaspoons of herb & fruit blend for each 7-9oz/200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time, the better the flavor as more fruit and herb flavor is extracted). Garnish and sweeten to taste.

Iced tea brewing method (Pitcher): (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 12 slightly heaping teaspoons of herb & fruit blend into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml over the herb & fruit blend. Steep for 5-10 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the tea or removing the tea bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot brew since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.

Iced tea brewing method
(Individual Serving): Place 2 slightly heaping teaspoons of herb & fruit blend into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6 -7oz/170- 200ml per serving over the herb & fruit blend. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted.
