drank Mango Lassi by DAVIDsTEA
407 tasting notes

Steepster, what is wrong with you? I look up “mango lass” and this pops up, but then when I add the “i” on the end there’s nothing resembling a lassi. Goodness.

I got my box from MissB today! I picked a few teas up in her recent sale, so I was very surprised to find how many extras she popped in the box! This is one I actually did buy. When I open the tin the smell is overwhelmingly mango-y, hooray! I love tropical fruits so much.

I was afraid this one would be too much chamomile, but this tastes much more like mango than anything. It’s also really creamy! Everything I hoped it’d be and more. I can only imagine how good this will be iced—I’ll have to try it soon.

ETA: Cooled off this isn’t quite as good, actually. It’s still fruity but the creaminess is gone. I might try truly icing it, but I don’t know that this’ll be all that great cold.


Oh, yay! So glad you got the box safe and sound, and that you enjoyed tea #1. :)

Elizabeth, college student, history/anthropology major. I love to read, travel, and try new foods.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it about a year ago. I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything! Currently:

-comfortable and experimenting with black teas
-enthusiastically embracing oolongs
-cautiously trying chai, greens, and whites
-adoring herbals (without hibiscus)
-neutral to rooibos
-afraid of pu-erhs (but willing to try!)

My rating system:

95-100: I would cross oceans for this tea. Drinking it is an amazing experience. If I don’t currently have it in my cabinet I’m probably very sad about that.

80-94: A very good tea. I would probably buy it again if I had the money/room in my cabinet.

65-79: Decent. I might buy it on sale or pass it by depending on my mood.

40-64: I’d accept a cup of this if it was served to me, but not buy it.

below 40: Ugh! Never again!

Keep in mind that bitterness is the worst thing that can happen to a tea for me, followed closely by hibiscus; I also have food allergies that rarely influence my tea habit, but please check with me before sending anything!

About Swaps: I am always willing to swap with anyone within continental North America! Just drop me a note. For anyone in the eastern half of the U.S. I’ll gladly swap small samples of things, but further away than that I would prefer if we dealt with larger amounts.
