with this titillating herbal fruit tea blend inspired by Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci’s steamy 1972 film, Last Tango in Paris. The film, which portrays a salacious affair between a widower played by Marlon Brando and a young Parisian woman, was a cinematic scandal that ruffled feathers worldwide.
Much like its namesake, which was deemed too risque for the public in several countries, this juicy and floral blend is sure to rev your engine. A tango of flavors combines luscious mango, juicy orange and apple with flowery hibiscus and rosehips that don’t lie, creating a tea so sultry it should be government-censored! Its lemony character provides a lively kick, complimented by the addition of elderberries, which have been shown to boost respiratory health and alleviate allergies and flu symptoms. Whether you’re curling up on a winter’s day or that summer night is about to get even hotter, Last Mango in Paris is the perfect partner.
Enjoy a steamy cup and let this caffeine-free tropical blend take you along for a ride. Very Nice Iced, too.
