drank Mango Lassi by DAVIDsTEA
505 tasting notes

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.

Oh god, silly chamomile. I had DT’s pistachio cream to go the other day (iced), and it was delicious. Having it hot was another story entirely though, and the chamomile hit me in the face like a ton of bricks. Blech. uggh. Eww.

I may try Pistachio Cream cold steeped, but not a fan hot.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
