I think this tea smells amazing, but when I started drinking, I picked up more chamomile than mango, which is odd. It might be the 7 minute steep they did (it was a TTG today). I did pick up a small amount to play with at home. As I was walking downtown with my mug, I was thinking to myself how remarkably close to Buttercream this tastes, without the white base. I do add milk to Buttercream, so I do want to try this one with milk too. I don’t seem to love this one quite as much as Buttercream. At least not with this present steeping, but maybe a later one I will. I may also just buy this to mix with white tea and make my own buttercream.
I’m thinking that in pure terms of tasting like a mango lassi, neither this, nor Butiki’s really taste like them, but Butiki’s is way more mango-y than this one. I like them both for totally different reasons. They may have the same name, but they taste nothing alike to me.
