Dry, this smells super fruity. Steeped, it lives up to its name – mangoes! Sweet, juicy mangoes!
I’m disappointed to have used up the last of this – another desserty wonder that lives up to its name. Bravo!

Lassi come home
If you’re a lover of Indian food, chances are you’ve had a taste of a Mango Lassi. If not, it’s time you got acquainted. It’s a deliciously creamy blend of fresh mango, yogurt and a hint of rosewater – just about the coolest, most satisfying drink around. And this rich, fruity blend is our homage to the classic. It blends sweet, succulent mango with creamy vanilla and a floral hint of honey-kissed Egyptian chamomile. Our advice? Try it as an iced latte…or blend it into your next smoothie.
Ingredients: Mango, chamomile, orange peel, vanilla bean, vanilla extract.

Dear god this smells incredible. Both dry leaf and liquor have a wonderful sweet creamy mango aroma wafting from them. The taste is very similar, but with a not-entirely-pleasant lemony tang at the finish. There were some tiny gritty pieces that I got in some sips, which put me off until I realized there’s ACTUAL VANILLA BEAN in this blend.
An excellent nighttime tea. David better not discontinue this one anytime soon.
I’m not an herbal tea person-I like caffeine. A lot. And I dislike lemongrass and hibiscus. A lot. So finding an herbal tea that’s mango and chamomile was exciting for me because I enjoy hot tea in the evening after dinner in lieu of something sweet. I did get a strong chamomile from this tea but the mango compliments it and makes it kind of fun-it’s got a bit of spiciness to it. It went well with milk but could be very nice iced. In the end, my suggestion is to try this tea if you’re a fan of chamomile but don’t buy it based on the mango alone because you have to like the two to make it work. To me a longer steep brings out more chamomile (and I would NOT add milk at that point). Also, and this may sound strange, but I could see cooking with this tea. I think it would be great in a salad dressing or as a marinade for chicken or fish.
Fantastic tea either iced or hot. For me, the two notes I get out of it are a mango/citrus note and then a strong chamomile after taste. Not for those who dislike chamomile. Fantastic as an iced latte.
EDIT: This one makes me sick after a while. It’s a shame, but I gotta re-rate it down a bit. Too much chamomile is icky-town.
It’s been a while since I’ve had this tea, but I remember really liking it. I like actual mango lassi, and all the ingredients in this should be delicious.
The dry leaf smells like mango and chamomile, with a hint of coolness that makes me think mint. I’m actually not a fan of the smell of dried chamomile. Something about it makes me think of cat pee on flowers. So, I’m not digging the fragrance of this, but that is entirely due to the chamomile, and in the moments where I can get away from that association, it’s actually okay.
Steeped, the smell is much better. Lots of chamomile still, but mellowed enough to not be offensive. I’m getting some slight sourness that I’m not a huge fan of, but there’s chamomile, mango and creaminess, which is pretty much everything I was looking for in this. Kind of thick ad very relaxing.

These ingredients seem to be a bit of an odd combination but I was drawn to it because it had mango in it but no hibiscus (ick). Also I’ve been on the look-out for more herbal/decaffeinated teas as my supply of those is getting low (and yet my tea cupboard is still overflowing).
I’ve always liked the flavour of chamomile – good quality stuff has a herbal apple/pineapple flavour to it and here it mixes well with the fruity mango flavours. It’s a very smooth blend with a rich, creamy undertone.
I only purchased a small amount as a tester but I’ll definitely replenish it when I’m done.
Small Big Traveling Tea Box
After reading that Skysamuri was picking some of this tea up in her pitstop in New York and finding it in the TTB, I couldn’t help but to try it!
This tea is juicy.. like biting into soft ripe mangoes as the sugar goodness drips down your face juicy. I love the notes of vanilla and orange. Yes, this tea is so good. The chamomile wasn’t too strong— in fact, I quite enjoyed it. Yum.
Edit: this tea is definitely better hot/warm. The more it cools, the more flavor it seems to lose.
When i saw someone post about this i had to try it. Had a long layover in New York so i took a train into the city and went straight to Davids tea. I was tempted to buy more then 1oz but finding out that there was chamomile in it made me wary. But like others i was pleasantly surprised that the chamomile doesn’t overpower the flavor and it really does taste similar to a mango lassi.
This was my choice for the David’s Tea iced summer refill deal today. There is a distinct creaminess or some other additional flavor that makes this tea beyond just a fruity tea and into a more “lassi” flavor. I would like to try it back to back with their other mango flavor to compare, but as a fan of all things mango, I’m happy with the taste. It’s a light orange/yellow tea and naturally sweet (I drank it without any sweetener and it still feels like dessert). Drinking it iced certainly feels like the way to go on this. The barista?brewer? working at David’s Teas recommended this flavor as a tea pop. I bet with some milk it has the potential to be even creamier.
