Funny how I mention every time that i don’t really love fruit infusions, but end up drinking them constantly in the summer. I think it is because after a good hardy meal I want something light, crisp and sweet. So of course today I opted for a “mango” flavored tea. I don’t know how many people have tried Indian Mango Lassi (a type of mango smoothing that is typically served in many Indian restaurants), but I was craving one and so I decided to go for the mango tea instead.

To my sad dismay this tea was more sour than sweet. Mayhaps the sourness was coming from the attempt to imitate “yoghurt” but nonetheless it was a disappointment. I ended up drinking it iced any ways…. O well

I was wondering if Lassi was a smoothie, I just know I wasn’t thrilled w/ the cuisine and the chai was nasty.

aww that is sad; if you enjoy mangoes i must recommend mango black by thepuritea it’s juicy tasting!

Now you’ve got me wanting to get mango lassi the next time I’m at the nice Indian restaurant the boyfriend and I go to often. :D

@ amazonV: i will definitely try that! maybe splash in a bit of coconut milk! i have been obsessed with adding coconut milk to my tea lately!

@jillian: mango lassi deprivation. be wary… once you crave, it must be appeased!

Jillian

I’ll consider myself warned. :D

i have traveled all my life, but the one constant food/drink that has followed me around is tea. now that i am settling down in new york city (settling down meaning for a few years), i have an urge to somehow record and remember all the cups of tea and my thoughts around them.

as i have been lucky to try a diverse range of teas from around the world, my ratings are a bit tough… but they are honest. i always prefer loose leaf teas (as the leaf quality is better) and my favorite pure tea has to be green tea. i enjoy a good blend but it has to be creative!

here are my ranks:

1-10: why is this even labeled as tea?

11-20: okay, at least there is some effort

21-40: i would drink it if there was nothing else in my fridge

41-60: good but not holding my attention.

61-70: flavor and aroma are distracting me in a good way!

71-90: delicious! i come back for a second round

91-100: too good to read while drinking. addicting. like a secret that i want to keep or tell the world. that is how good this tea is!
