From DAVIDsTEA

Ay carumba

Meet mango with an attitude: this sweet and spicy blend of green tea, mango and red hot chili threads is irresistibly refreshing on ice. Mango and chili might seem like an unusual combination, but you can actually find it in sauces, salsas and salads everywhere from Thailand to Mexico. If you’re feeling adventurous, it makes for a seriously sinful cocktail with a splash of tequila and lime: exotic and fruity with a dash of fire.

Ingredients: Green tea, mango pieces, lily, chili peppers, chili threads, stevia.

And now for something completely different.

Today is a grey and dismal day…doomed to be a boring Saturday I needed something to spice it up.It’s hard to describe the scent it’s definitely Mango but it’s got a whole other dimension to it.
Long red chili threads that make it hard to measure out but making it quite neat looking.

Once steeped it smells heavier not really spicy though which is kind of disappointing.

it’s kind of nice it’s fully mango but it has a spicy background.It’s a very mild drink though for what is promised.I suppose you could put more in and steep for longer and get the full impact but it might get bitter that way.It’s nice and has potential for a good icing.
I think I will trade this to my bff since her hubby loves the greens maybe this will be more up his and her alley.
I’m stuck in the middle about it at the end of the day.No Diablo maybe just a light sprinkling of spiciness.

I love spicy food. After reading comments, I was looking forward to try this one.

It’s a great blend. It smells very fruity, but the taste is not too overwhelming. It does pack some heat, but in my opinion nothing anyone can’t handle. As others said, the taste is mostly mango, but you will feel the heat going down your throat. The feeling lasts for a few seconds only.

I’m looking for something spicier, but this one will certainly do for now. Perfect after a good steak or anything grilled on the BBQ. Recommended.

If and when you find “something spicier” let me know, a spicy tea sounds interesting. Dig the avatar btw.

Tried this as an in-store sample. Can’t do it. All I tasted was the chile as it kicked me in the face. Won’t revisit.

“kicked in the face” lol! This is certainly a love it or leave it kind of tea. Quite apparently I’m from the opposite end of the spectrum than you, but I can totally see where you’re coming from. It’s not a tea that will appeal to everyone. Cute tealog ~ made me laugh

I had a dinner time mug of this with butter chicken and a chocolate muffin. This tasted like juicy mango sprinkled with hot chilli powder. Amazing.

I love this tea! At first it’s a bit like mango madness, but not for a long time! It’s spicy and not too sweet, really impressive!

Finally got around to trying this one and..hmm..I’m not sure about it!

The heat is wonderful. Wonderful! This is what I always hope for when I see that there is chili in a tea. It actually gives me that oh-my-god-it’s-burning-my-mouth feeling that I crave from spicy food. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t out of this world spicy, but it has a really nice kick for a tea, especially considering that I’m usually disappointed by teas with chilis or peppercorns because they never quite have the bite that I’m expecting.

My only real gripe with this tea is that I’m not really smitten with the mango flavouring they’ve used. Mango is kind of a hit or miss flavour with me, and in this case I found it a little cloying and artificial tasting. Not enough that I didnt want to finish my cup, but I don’t think I’ll be stocking up. The spice is soo good though!! It’s the kind of heat I wish was in blazing strawberries, or as DaisyChubb said, in chocolate chili chai. Why can’t more spicy teas pack this much of a punch?

Two sips. Too spicy. The SA did say that it was spicier than normal because it was a TotD and somehow being in the pot all day intensifies the spice.

First, I am a huge mango lover and I am definitely a fan of heat! I had a cup of this iced when I was away last weekend. The girl at e counter warned me that it was actually spicy, which I found odd (the description seemed pretty upfront), but I think she must have had a few disappointed customers who werent expecting it!

Normally when I am home, I make my iced tea a little bit more on the strong side, but I understand that getting it made quickly in the store It is bound to be a bit weak. The smell was lightly fruity, but I could smell the chili as well; they sort of tickle your nose! My first sip was full of mango flavor, and the heat from the chilis came afterwards. It seemed like an ok amount of heat, but if it had been stronger I probably would have wanted a refreshing and cool (not spicy!) drink to go with it.

After my first few sips I was impressed, but as I kept drinking everything seemed to muddle together and I lost any specific fruit flavor. By the time I finished the cup I had decided that I definitely didn’t want to buy more….ick.

WOAH.

This tea is way exciting! I was shocked to see that chili is in it, and even more shocked to be able to say that I actually liked chili in it!

Personally, I don’t think that it particularly tastes like chili. It tastes like mango and has the green tea background body. Where the chili really shines, is in the way it warms your mouth after each sip. I found it to be a pleasant warmth, not a building or distracting warmth, that makes the tea very unique and exciting.

My mom and I were unsure, so only purchased a 50g bag. But we quickly decided to split it 50/50, we were both so impressed!

Finally finished with my pre-spring break projects and tests. Got my order from Davidstea in the mail this morning. Perfectly timed! Now I can have new tea and pistachios as a reward for getting through it all. (Plus, I got all the samples from the Spring collection I wanted to try. Gotta remember to try those before they go away this time. XD)

Now I’m not going to lie, I was looking forward to this tea. Mango salsa is probably one of my favorite things ever. I opened the bag, and it smelled absolutely intoxicating.

Now first of all, maybe its because I’m from Texas, but this doesn’t have any spice in it. At all. I mean, my throat is kind of warmed after drinking it, but not really. Maybe a shot of Tabasco would liven it up? Ahaha, I can’t believe I even thought of that.

Secondly, the mango in this tastes like Juicy Fruit. Seriously, maybe its just the way I brewed it, but the resemblance is uncanny. I’ll try steeping it a bit longer next time to see if that helps the flavor any.

Overall I’m pretty disappointed by this. Admittedly my expectations were very high, I expected to fall in love. As it is, its good, but its not the spicy mango I was hoping for. And for the cost to cup ratio of David’s Tea, I’m not sure it was worth it.

EDIT: Its getting spicier as it cools. Now THATS what I’ talking about Mango Diablo.
