drank Mango Lassi by Butiki Teas
1116 tasting notes

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 and 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 (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

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.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

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.
