drank Mango Lassi by DAVIDsTEA
268 tasting notes

I went to DAVID’s yesterday to buy “pumpkin spice”.They were out. So now I’m there, at the counter, thinking “them’s the breaks. How can walk away with no tea?” It would be a waste of trip. So I refilled my goji pop before someone decides it’s a summer drink and they pull it, got “read my lips” and then, against my better judgement, I got some of this too. I say against my better judgement because I don’t like chamomile. But I thought maybe it will be more mango than chamomile.

Also, I feel like I’m getting sick, my throat feels funny so I made this when I got home and went straight to bed with the mug. You know, it’s not too bad. If you don’t like chamomile it can be really scary to see a whole bunch of chamomile flowers in the dry leaf. However, I can say that mango comes first. I am still not going to restock this but at least it’s not awful and I can drink the 24g I got.

Brews really pale and the aroma is predominantly chamomile although the taste is mostly mango. Juicy mango, not the mango in “happy kombucha” or “mango madness” .

Hope you don’t get sick!

LOL You really need to tell me these things. I was at the mall today, could have bought you some and tossed it in the package I just mailed. (How could they be out of pumpkin spice at this time of year?)

Thanks, stephanie.

Dexter — it was last night while at Jonathan’s so I didn’t get a chance to talk to you after that. But yeah, wtf, it’s DT’s fall lineup superstar, this pumpkin spice, how can they be out? I don’t want to order online and have to spend $50 for free shipping so I’ll have to wait.

Tealizzy

You mean pumpkin chai, right? I just ordered some online, justifying the $5 shipping by the fact that they send 3 free samples. I was getting worried they would be out, and I guess that worry was true!

Yah, pumpkin chai, you’re right, Tealizzy. Sorry!

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
