drank Mango Lassi by Butiki Teas

For whatever reason, I enjoyed this much more last night than I did the other night. Perhaps the lower water temperature?

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 15 sec
VariaTEA

I wonder how this compares to DAVIDs Mango Lassi.

MissB

I have both (although DAVIDs is leaving the premises soon) and I find this one much more enjoyable and true to an actual lassi. Mind you, I also was finding issue (read: having a mild allergic reaction) with the chamomile (or maybe something else?) in DAVIDs version.

VariaTEA

I figured that was probably the case. I am sorry to hear about your allergic reaction. I know for me the chamomile in the DAVIDs blend was off-putting so I sent it away. Then when it came to placing my Butiki order, I was biased against Mango Lassi teas but perhaps I will look into this when I place a future Butiki order.

I find Butiki’s version a lot spicier

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Having said that, I’m traveling indefinitely (currently in Ireland) so my stash will sit and wait for me, as I send back tea to explore more when I get home again.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
