drank Mango Lassi by Butiki Teas
43 tasting notes

After going out for Indian food one night I decided to develop a rooibos that was similar to mango lassi. As I vegan, I don’t drink anything with dairy in it but I wanted to make a tea that I could enjoy that reminded me of one of my old favorite beverages.

The dry leaves of this rooibos are small and thin and are varying degrees of red and brown. Calendula and mango chunks are mixed in. The aroma is a wonderful spicy and fragrant creamy mango. The wet leaves of this rooibos are walnut colored, thin, and small. Chunks of mango and calendula are also present. The wet leaves have a spicy cardamom aroma that gives way to a creamy sweet mango scent. Mango Lassi produces a brilliant red liquor with great clarity and immediately smells of cardamom and mango followed by a sweet cream. Sipping this tea without sugar produces notes of citrus and mango with prominent cardamom notes that linger and become lightly creamy. With a little brown crystal sugar added, this rooibos becomes an intensely creamy with mango and cardamom notes. Each note compliments each other well.

Fairly an aside but salted lassi is among the grossest thing i’ve consumed in my life – we had it at some joint in india. Mango lassi is tasty though. Will have to try this out.

I’ve never heard of a salted lassi. I’m going to have to google that and see how it differs. If its just salt in a lassi, then that sounds not so good.

Salted lassi is more common than sweet and mango lassi. Its terrible though.

That’s interesting. I did not realize it was more common. I looked it up a little and seems that some places use cumin in it. That sounds a bit rough to drink.
