What does it mean when the ingredients in my herbal tea say "mango flavoring" or something similar? Is this not a natural flavoring?

What brand of tea are you asking about? In general its hard to tell as “mango flavoring” is fairly ambiguous as it can be legally applied to both natural mango extracts and artificial chemical based flavors; although I think it would probably be a good chance that it is artificial as they probably would have barged about all natural ingredients somewhere on the package if it was the case.
