yummy tea of the afternoon…

I started drawing some flowers and decided I would have this tea to accompany me, which is definitely one of my favorite rooibos tisanes.

I have a date this afternoon which I don’t really want to go on, however I think it would be good for me to get out and meet some new people so I’m going anyway. I hope I don’t die of boredom or bore the other person to death. ;-)

Had some of this in the afternoon in between all of the bustle of getting my chinese visa, work related things and other such adventures. I’m finding myself more and more stressed out every day over my impending trip, so I’m trying to do my best to take time out in the afternoon to sit and have a cup of something to try and relax. This afternoon it was mango lassi! In ym continuing quest to bring my tea collection down a bit, this is one of the teas i’ve set aside to try and have a bit more of since it’s been in my cupboard longer than some others. Today i was once again reminded of why i picked this up in the first place. This is a really nice mango tea! Probably my current favourite, though I continue to look for mango teas that are more about the mango!

This is so good. Upon first sip, it is a little bit earthy. In the aftertaste, and further into the mug, mango comes through. As I near the bottom of the mug, the mango has more staying power and tastes very natural. There is also just a hint of spiciness somewhere.

I don’t know how you do your flavourings so well Stacy, but they are phenomenal!

I made 2 cups and have put the remaining into a to-go cup to have cold tomorrow. I will edit tomorrow after I have tasted that brew!

EDIT: the cup that I cooled in the fridge was so good. So refreshing and mango. This was probably even better cold than it is hot!! Might as well increase the rating a little bit!

Odd, so the smell of this one steeped is absolutely screaming fresh, slightly underripe banana to me. Which is delicious, but not mango lassi. Admittedly, that’s the association I’m making with the flavour as well. I’m getting maybe a touch, oh yes, there it is, of cardamom, and lots of banana flavour. The rooibos is present but not overwhelmingly obvious, which is definitely a bonus.

I saw some mango chunks in the dry tea – maybe I missed getting one into my cup. Either way, I have lots left to try again and tease out a more mango-y flavour!

I was born and raised in New York City, but spent enough time in India to consider both places my home. That’s one thing you should know about me. Another thing you should know about me is that mango is one of my favourite things on this planet.

So. When I was little, we used to go to India a lot during the winter, because Mum and I always had long winter holidays (she was a teacher). One year, we decided to go during the summer for whatever reason, and that was one of the most memorable visits of my life. I had never experienced a proper monsoon season before, and it was incredible! Okay, yes, it was a tad inconvenient that your clothes are never dry, no matter what, for two months; the constant dampness can feel a little icky. But the way the rain transforms the landscape, wow, it’s just beautiful. I really wanted to take some video (I was obsessed with my camcorder around that time), but there was no way for me to keep it dry, so I just have my memories.

Anyway. My uncle was really thrilled that we were there during the summer. Do you know, he exclaimed, that we have over 40 varieties of mango? And I’m going to get them for you. And he took his shopping bag and marched out of the house. He didn’t exactly return with 40 varieties, but he did find quite a few during his short expedition around our Bombay neighbourhood. There were little ones that you eat regularly, there were fibrous ones and non-fibrous ones, and there were even huge ones the size of a papaya that were so juicy that you consumed them by sticking in a straw and simply squishing the mango as you drank. And I’m sure you can guess what happened next. Yes, exactly: I ate them all.

The next morning, I was brushing my teeth and I glanced up at the mirror. I’m not given to surprised exclamations, and wasn’t even at that age, so first my eyes got wide as saucers, and then I burst out laughing, and then I ran off to find my mum. You see, I was orange. It wasn’t until years later that I learned about the science behind that in school; at the time, I was just thrilled that I was orange all over. My uncle, who has the deepest dimples you’ve ever seen and laughs like Ernie from Sesame Street, burst into his typical khee-khee-khee-khee laughter when he saw me, which only set me off again. Mum, mind you, was less than amused, and wouldn’t let me eat any more mangos.

Thus endeth my best mango story. Now I reckon we should talk about this tea, eh? =)

Monosyllabic summary: Wow.

Somehow, Butiki Teas have made a vegan rooibos blend smell and taste like mango lassi. As far as I’m concerned, Stacy is some sort of magician. The fragrance and flavour are spot-on, not just for the mango flavour, but for mango lassi. There is no chemical note to the mango, it smells and tastes like either the fruit or a candy (sometimes like one, sometimes like the other), but natural in both cases. I don’t have any complaints about this one. The only thing I want to try next time is adding a bit of milk to bring out that creaminess even more.

I only have an ounce of this, so it must have been a freebie with one of my orders, during one of Butiki Teas’ “free ounce of your choice” promotions. I must reorder it so I can guzzle this without guilt, and with the reassurance that there’s more in the cupboard.

Tea amount: 1.5 tsp/~7g
Water amount: 6oz/~175mL
Additives: 1 tsp/~4.75g Demerara sugar

Mum, by the way, liked the tea, but neither smelled nor tasted mango lassi. Considering she has sharp senses while I often feel like mine are quite dull, I don’t understand how that’s possible, but there y’go. So in spite of my enthusiasm and conviction, I have to add that your mileage may vary.

Loved the story, Nik. It reminded me of a story my grandpa told me once: he very much wanted to get into the air force in WW2, but his eyesite was bad. Someone told him carrots would help his eyes, so he proceeded to eat so many over the next few day that he turned orange. :)

Nik

Yes! lol! Oh, that cracks me up, such a sweet story.

Butiki Teas

Great story! Wow, what a compliment! :)

Serenity

I have been desperately wanting to try this tea since I heard about it just a few days ago! Great review, Nik!

Bonnie

Nik I LOVED your story!!! Please write more like this one!!! And I know about more mango’s just living for a short time in Puerto Rico where there are apple mango’s, pear mango’s, mango’s with all sorts of different flavors and sizes. Who knew?!

Nik

Thanks, everybody! Oh, Bonnie, I wish I had fun stories to share all the time like you do! But I will try and share more as I think of them. =)

Terri HarpLady

Great story, Nik!!
I also love mangos, plain, in salads with avocado, and also in a bowl, drizzled with coconut milk & crystallized ginger…yum. Now I wish I would have included some of the Mango Lassi tea in my latest Butiki Order!

JasonCT

Namaste Nik! You and Sita must be kindred spirits when it comes to mangoes. I love mango lassi as a treat when we eat Indian out. Nothing quite like the heat of India is there? I’ll have to pick some of this up for Sita to try.
Great review.

Nik

Serenity, I’m going to need to add that to my list of pies to try! The list now contains two: the mango pie and the one that started it all, Terri’s vegan chocolate one. Thanks for the link! =)

Terri, thanks! I’ve never had it drizzled with coconut milk and crystallized ginger, that sounds quite good. Jason, thanks for the kind words, hope Sita ends up liking this as much as I do.

Terri HarpLady

There’s an awesome dessert they serve at a local Thai restaurant called Halohalo, which is a bowl of sweet coconut milk with little cubes of coconut milk jello floating around, jackfruit, different kind of coconut & other mysterious, but delicious, things in it. I’ve made my own version that includes mango, young coconut flesh (after I drilled holes to drink the juice…I have a drill bit dedicated for coconuts), etc.

Then there’s that awesome mango sticky rice dessert…

Sil

Nik I love this tea cause I’m with you on it. T only disturbing thing for me is that its hot. However I did try cold brewing it and its uh not as awesome as the hot brew. So yeah. Lol

Nik

Terri, Halohalo sounds amazing, I’m definitely going to have to look that up!

Sil, you know what? Drinking fruity teas hot totally weirds me out. Every single time, I think to myself that it’s weird, what I’m doing, and that I want to try it cold-brewed or iced and see how it is. Even with the Blueberry Afternoon tea I tried recently, even though I realised that I actually liked it hot, I still had that moment where I was like hmm, this is weird. Except with Mango Lassi. I was so busy nomnomnom’ing after each sip (literally—I think I was starting to get on Mum’s nerves) that I actually didn’t even get a chance to think heeeey, nobody drinks mango lassi hot, this is weird! So that’s another huge point in this blend’s favour. :D

Tea Sipper

I love the story!

Nik

Thank you!

canadianadia

Great story Nik, it makes me want to go out and buy mangoes to eat. Not so many that I turn orange, but maybe one or two…at a time. The best mangoes I’ve ever tried were in Trinidad. They were so juicy that I couldn’t eat them without it running down my arms. I’ve never had the ones that you eat with a straw, but oh yum, that sounds fantastically delicious. Thanks for sharing your story.

jordanze

Mm mango and mango lassi really are some of life’s treasures…Thank you for this wonderful story!

Ysaurella

Nik, it’s a long time now we haven’t see you on steepster, hope everything is ok and to see you back soon

Terri HarpLady

I miss Nik!
I’m gonna go over to FB & tell Nik, “we miss you”

Sil

i sent a note to Nik the other day and never heard back…guess life is busy or something

Claire

Please tell him I miss him on here too!

Bonnie

MISSING NIK!

canadianadia

me too! I miss his stories

Made this one as a cold brew today. Brewed for just under 12 hours.

I was disappointed in this one as a cold brew. It pretty much just tastes like cold brewed rooibos to me. There is a very slight sweetness to it, but it is not necessarily mango. Oh well, you never know until you try.

it’s a sad state of affairs when the inevitable stabs you not in the back, but in the tongue.

i have suspected for quite some time that i was developing a sensitivity to rooiboos, not a full on allergy, but a warning shot across the bow shall we say? ‘then why would you drink it on purpose, james? (with an implied [idiot] in your tone of voice’ you might be wondering. because if it was made by stacy lim it must be an exception! that’s why!!!! ….. …… or not.

i got no mango, nor flavour whatsoever as soon as it touched my tongue i stopped being able to taste… and to swallow, not from swelling, from dryness. while stacy is almost always the exception, not so in this case.

no numbers. i failed stacy’s awesome tea. =0( BUT I GET REALLY GOOD GRADES!!!!! good thing this wasn’t a test relevant to my degree. however, on that note: i now have confirmed and very comfortable A+ averages in all my classes folks! i failed the mango lassi….. but i have my classes nailed!

Congrats!

JustJames

thank you! i had an amazing opportunity to interview some veterans in my field of study who gave me expert advice. i know what i’m doing and exactly how i’m going to do it…. it’s been quite a week!

Stephanie

Congrats on the school stuff and bummer on the rooibos. I don’t get this effect with it…It just tastes really bitter and gross to me. How are you with Honeybush?

JustJames

honeybush i’m fine with…. no idea what the glitch is with rooiboos. =0(

Stephanie

I strongly prefer honeybush as well. Rooibos just ain’t right.

JustJames

it tasted that way to me always…. but, but this is stacy! stacy is different! but there’s not right, wrong, and then there’s sideaffects. no more playing with rooiboos.

ifjuly

woo, congrats, smartypants! hopefully you can relax a bit between sessions?

JustJames

uhhhhh…… you know how i was going to going to alternate semesters with hard and then easy? yeah. that didn’t happen. summer time it will though because heat makes me so sick. i was invited to a special class, i got 100% on a lab and given an additional bonus mark which was a first for the prof i got a 97 on my other major project and i’ve had some help deciding where i’m going and there’s no time to waste: doctorate of human geography with a minor in psychology. i’ll need lots of tea to sustain me, lol!

MissB

Woot! Congrats on the continued success. As for the rooibos, I was talking to someone about this the other day. Some folks have genetic unusualities (heh) that make us more or less susceptible to certain foods, flavors, tastes. For instance, there’s a fairly significant percentage of the population that tastes cilantro (the leaf) as soapy. I’m one of the few weirdos that, when eating fish, smells like it quite strongly within 2 hours, and it lasts about a day. Rooibos is also in that interesting reaction category, where some folks taste it as bitter.

JustJames

really…. hadn’t heard that, but i’m not surprised. the combination of mother nature’s natural creativity along with us muddling the planet breeds confusion. mine is a result (probably) of an already exigent autoimmune disease. they tend to multiply. and while i’m not thrilled with allergies, i’ll take those over diabetes or something more serious.

TheTeaFairy

Congrats on the grades James!
I can’t help wonder if green rooibos would have the same effect on you since it’s less processed. I dislike pretty much all red rooibos, but I love green. Sadly, compare to the red blends, there isn’t too many green ones available out there…maybe there isn’t enough people liking it and I’m the odd one!

MissB

Oh gosh, if anyone wants to try or have some green rooibos I have almost a pound left of it from Adagio.

JustJames

in future miss tea fairy, but i’ve stumbled into a slew of sensitivities lately and i’m just steering clear of all of them until things settle down. maltitol is plain old vicious to me. stevia isn’t far behind. roasted mate….. even though i love it!!!!! makes me snarly. so i’ll just leave it all be and hope i’m experiencing some overreactions.

OMGsrsly

Yeah, cilantro sure is soapy!

Congratulations on your grades, James! That’s so incredibly awesome. I’m so glad you have a focus and know where you’re going. :)

Amariel

Here’s me and rooibos…

I typically don’t like it, with the exception of a few rare blends (DT’s Orange Blossom and Alpine Punch, and this one from Stacy)…but I do know what you mean about the dry mouth because I do get that with most rooibos.

I prefer green rooibos to red (I love Swampwater) and I prefer honeybush over rooibos, in general. That said, I do try to find what rooibos I do like…which isn’t much, sadly.

Butiki Teas

Congrats on the grades, James! :) Bummer about the rooibos. I’m not a big rooibos fan either which is why we only have a few blends. Not that I don’t like it but I feel like tea is just much more complex and interesting.

JustJames

i ordered it originally for our daughter anyway…. but stacy lim building juicy mangoes? hmph….. i was going to try it though!

Drinking the last of this tasty mango rooibos. Always feel I need to do a kind of moment of silence when I’m drinking the last of good tea.

Things happen …finally…there is a rooibos I appreciate !
It’s not as good as real tea to me but it is nice.

Mango lassi isn’t my favorite Indian lassi (I prefer the mint or the rose one) but this is a beverage I like anyway.

Here the mango aroma is really wonderful and take the head of the notes.
It’s not creamy as a lassi can be but the quality of the mango aroma is really impressive and I really appreciated this rooibos (this is an exploit !)

Thank you Azzrian for the opportunity you gave me to taste this blend.

Thanks too to cteresa for supporting me to continue tasting rooibos :)

Thank you Stacy from Butiki Teas for including this sample in with my last order! This is so incredibly good!

Of course, that should be no surprise, I don’t think I’ve tried anything from Butiki Teas yet that I’ve not liked. The mango here is so well-defined. Sweet, juicy, delicious mango. I don’t taste a lot of rooibos, maybe a hint of nutty tones here and there, but mostly what I taste is MANGO, some cream and a gentle, warm note from the cardamom.

This is seriously yum. I’d recommend this one to anyone who likes mango. This is one of the best mango tisanes I’ve tried yet.

Jillian

Hmm I don’t normally go for red rooibos blends but I might make an exception for this one on my next order. ;)

LiberTEAS

Or at the very least, request this as one of your samples. It’s really very good if you like mango. I was surprised at how yummy it was.

inguna

Thanks for the recommendation. I might give this one a try; I LOVE mongo lassi.

Jillian

I adore mango so I’ll have to do just that. :D
