Summer of Mango



A tropical getaway for your taste buds

If you love warm tropical beaches, our tropical mango flavor can transport you there! Vibrant, juicy mango brings the sandy summer beaches to you wherever you are. Maybe you’re in the office during the day? A cool, refreshing iced mango latte is just what you’ll need to fight off the afternoon slump. Or are you on your way to visit with friends? Green tea Mango Mints give your breath a tropical freshness and a great flavor to enjoy. Whatever your summer brings, you can always enjoy the refreshing taste of our Tropical Mango lattes and mints. 

Don’t limit your tropical daydreams to the pool or beach. Bring the tropical beaches with you on the go! Fight dragon breath and enjoy a good for you treat during your long summer days and busy social life. Our mints are great for after a lunch with co-workers or before a night out. Best yet, they combine the flavors of tropical mango with matcha green tea so you’re getting all the benefits of matcha with your favorite tropical flavor. Our canisters can slide easily into your beach bag or work bag so whether it’s the weekend or another Monday, you’re ready to go. If you’re traveling, keep your mints in our resealable mint packets! You get more mints for your money, plus the resealable packets help keep your mints fresh and protected from all the elements. Our resealable mint packages are our favorites for traveling and especially if you’ll be traveling to anywhere with blue waters.

Our green tea mints pack the benefits of green tea perfectly blended with the juicy mango flavor. Matcha delivers a powerful antioxidant punch. Antioxidants are important for our health because they fight free radicals in your body. Free radicals are unstable and can create negative reactions in the body- including attacking the collagen in our bodies (think wrinkles!). One cause of free radicals is from the sun, which is what you want to enjoy all summer long! That’s why matcha’s antioxidant properties make it such a strong contender in adding to your daily dose of wellness. In addition to keeping your breath fresh, you can help your body ward away free radicals- it’s a win-win!

Sitting poolside in the warm summer sun pairs perfectly with an iced cold drink. Instead of reaching for sugary juices or chemical laden sodas, grab an iced matcha latte. Refreshingly cold, iced matcha lattes perfectly blend as your stir together your favorite tropical drink. With our matcha lattes, we use unrefined coconut sugar, and natural ingredients so you can enjoy a better-for-you, tastier alternative that's vegan too! If you don’t want your drink on the rocks, maybe blended is more for you. Simply mix some ice, our matcha latte mix, and water to create a refreshing blended drink. Our matcha latte powder blends smoothly so you feel like a professional barista as you’re mixing in the kitchen. Take your drink poolside and imagine you’re on the beaches of an island, sipping a refreshing latte infused with tropical mangos. It’s the perfect escape! 

One of our favorite parts about our matcha latte mix is getting creative in the kitchen. With hot summer days, we’ve been finding creative ways to cool down our lattes. Check out one of our summer favorites:

Mango May: 6 Sweet Benefits of Your Favorite Summer Flavor

With its sweet, juicy flavor profile reminiscent of beaches, palm trees, and lazy summer afternoons, it’s easy to forget that mangoes are actually GOOD for you.

But- there’s more to mango than being the “poster flavor” of all things tasty and tropical. Here’s just a few of the amazing benefits it has to offer:


1. A Fresh Face Forward

Mangoes not only refresh the palette, but the face as well. Chock full of antioxidants, this tropical fruit unclogs pores, wiping out blemishes and blackheads. In addition to keeping the skin clear, mango’s high vitamin A content helps maintain a youthful glow, fighting against early signs of aging.


2. Immunity

Even with flu season behind us, it’s always smart to keep up a solid defense where colds, coughs and sore throats are concerned. A little mango goes a long way in protecting against any stray ailments in the air; vitamins A and C, as well as a multitude of carotenoids (at least 25 types!) help boost the immune system, keeping you well all year long.


3. Stay Cool

There may be a biological reason mango hits just the right spot on those real sweltering days. A simple ayurvedic remedy made up of green mango juice, water and a light sweetener, is thought to help cool the body, and release toxins from the kidneys, slowing damage caused by heat stroke.


4. Alkalizes the Body

Malic, citric, and tartaric acids work together to help alkalize the body. This helps soothe the digestive system, helping alleviate conditions like IBS, indigestion, bloating, as well as  inflammation throughout the body.


5. Eye Health

Carrots aren’t the only food that keep those eyeballs in top form. High vitamin A content makes mango a heavy hitter when it comes to caring for your peepers- preventing dry eyes and night blindness.


6. Help Prevent Cancer

As far as health benefits go, you can’t really beat cancer prevention. Mangoes help prevent leukemia, as well as breast, prostate and colon cancers, with powerful  antioxidants like quercetin, isoquercitrin, gallic acid and astragalin.

In the midst of mango season (April-June, by the way..), there’s really no reason not jump on the bandwagon.
