In 1899, the French painter Paul Gaugin set up his easel,  unwrapped his painting kit and sat down to paint two young women, one of  whom posed with a platter of mango blossoms. If you like mangos and  Gaugin, the painting, fittingly titled: "Two Tahitian Women", now hangs  in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum in NYC for your viewing  pleasure.

So, where does tea fit into all this? The setting of  the famous painting was the French Polynesian island of Tahiti. In 1891,  and again in 1895, Gaugin sailed to the island in order to escape  "everything that is artificial and conventional". When you run a tea  company, it is that same thought process that drives one to develop a  new tea blend!  

And so it was for our Master Blender, also a  fervent art-lover, who after a trip to the Met decided to create a tea  that would celebrate Gaugin's famous work. The blend, as per Gaugin's  reasoning, would have to be all-natural, and represent a break from the  conventions of traditional tea blending.  After rolling out his blending  components, in much the same way a painter rolls out his paints, and  after careful experimentation to get the flavor and character just  right, our Master Blender found the magical combination you now hold in  your hands: Oolong J'Adore Mango.

This stunning blend begins  with a base of Fujian grown Oolong, selected for its leaf quality and  rich, bright cup. This is then craft-blended with all natural mango  flavoring to create a tea that is at once fresh, full bodied, and  brimming with mango flavor. If you love the artistry of fine tea, this  is one you're going to love as much as Gaugin loved the fruits of French  Polynesia. (He never left the islands, dying there in 1903.)
