Diablo Fit: A New Tea Culture Hits the East Bay

Red Mango Yogurt shop introduces three flavors of all natural probiotic ice teas.


Ice tea and summer time are a synonymous blend; reason enough why there couldn’t be a better time to unveil a powerful new contender in the arena of ice tea.

Last Monday Red Mango, an all-natural yogurt chain, unleashed three different flavors of probiotic ice teas to complement their menu of all natural frozen yogurts. The three flavors of teas—Mysteaque, a vanilla black tea, Fanteasia, a wildberry hibiscus tea, and Lemonocity, a lemonade green tea—are all packed with the probiotic GanedenBC30, a good bacteria that the company says helps with digestion and improves the immune system.

The yogurt shop says that the decision to add the teas was made because of the demand from customers for different beverages and because ice tea has an array of beneficial antioxidants.

Tasteless to the tongue, the trademarked GanedenBC30 probiotic has been added not only to the Red Mango’s teas, but to its all-natural frozen yogurts as well, lending more of a boost to its all-natural probiotic red mango ingredients.

Jason ShuehUnlike most probiotic ingredients the shop claims that GanedenBC30 is stronger than other probiotic because of its unique design. Within each cell the ingredient is a protective spore that keeps the fragile healthy bacteria intact through the rigors of manufacturing, product shelf life, and the harsh flow of stomach acids. Many probiotics found in capsules, tablets and yogurt are extremely fragile and thus few cells survive—providing minimal health benefits.

To taste for yourself, check out the East Bay's new Red Mango store in downtown Walnut Creek—teas range from $2.75–3.25.
