I've been curious what the "resin" taste is like?  I've not had the chance to sample as many different types, so trying to pin down that characteristic.  I've tried some imported Kensington Pride that had what I might consider a resinous aftertaste, although I might stretch it further to more of a gasoliney flavor.  Perhaps a closer resin hint I've tasted would be in some lesser ripened Valencia Pride.

Buy an Alphonso and/or Kesar mango from an Indian supermarket.  You'll see right away.  Little India in Artesia is not too far drive from you.

The pink probably came from pink slime being injected into it

2500 years ago after a sermon by Gautama (Lord) Buddha where he advocated non violence towards all kinds of animals, birds, fish, insects and pointed out that they should not be consumed as food. After the sermon his well learned disciple Ananda asked his teacher "Lord. Don't the plants and seeds have no life?". His teacher had no answer nor reply but turned his head and gazed at the Sun! Triphal

  The last meal he ate was dried boar's flesh at the house of Cunda

I slow compost, using large containers & half barrels.  I put banana leaves & stems, various leaves, newspaper, kitchen scraps.  I don't bother turning, just allowing the bacteria & worms to break it down.  I also put old potting soil when transplanting potted plants, to recharge it.

In the garage, I have a DIY wormbin, with newspaper & brown cardboard bedding.  I feed the worms insect frass, kitchen scraps, various leaves and such.  Instead of waiting for the worms to compost everything and then separate, I just gather castings every now & then

Rooted a couple more cuttings

Look into self-fruiting dragonfruit varieties-
American Beauty
Sugar Dragon
Hailey's Comet
Giant Vietnamese

Impressive list of ingredients.  I think adding kelp meal would be a great finishing touch

Honey Kiss

Hard prune every Winter, for it's a vigorous grower.  Tilapia love it (boiled, of course)

I slice fresh ginger into slivers. I break the cinnamon stick into pieces.  The rest of the spices, I put in my Magic Bullet to grind for a few secs.  Not to grind into powder, but just enough to break them up to infuse better.  I boil these in the water for 5 minutes.  Turn off the heat, then add the tea to steep for 5 minutes.  I use coconut milk as the lightener.  I don't add sugar.
