From the Here’s hoping Traveling Tea Box
I like the mix of mango, vanilla, and chamomile in this tea. It’s juicy and really relaxing. I can see this being excellent as a cold brew, but it’s also nice as a warm before bed tea.

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.

Let me start by saying that I’m actually a fan of this tea… minus one caveat; the smell. The good news is that the smell goes away completely IF you add creamer. With sweetener and creamer, it tastes like juicy mango with sweet cream. It’s a Mango Lassi without the tart bite (sourness) that comes with yogurt.
Ok, so I was reluctant to post what I think this smells like, but I feel that I should add it in case someone orders it and is really disappointed… (IMO) it smells like cat spray. There, I said it. Just add creamer before you try it for a better first impression.
I am normally a fan of David’s Tea. This might be the worst tea I have tried since being introduced to loose tea. Right out of the bag the pungent smell made me gag, but some of the reviews seemed positive, so I decided to give it a shot anyway.
Bad Idea. Add flowery teas to the list of flavors I can’t handle. That being said, if a flower-flavored mango tea sounds appealing to you, then THIS is your tea. Look no further. I would happily send this as a swap.
As for me and my tastebuds? No thank-you.
Second time I’ve had this. I’m really trying to decide if I love it or not. I’m really not sure.
The camomile seems to be the most predominate flavour I’ve found so far. it’s got a bit of mango, but I find it hides behind the camomile. I use to drink straight camomile tea, but I got out of that. I started to realize that I didn’t like it the same anymore after a bit. So, to drink it now, is kind of weird for me. I haven’t had it in years.
So, I do wish the mango was stronger, but I’m okay with it. Either way… I don’t think I’d get this one again. I have quite a bit of it still so I’ll be good for a while.
Coldbrewed. This is…okay. Just okay. It’s juicy enough and I loved the first sip, but as the cup goes on, it’s less and less tasty. It’s got a weird taste to it that I’m going to assume is the chamomile, as I’m not overly familiar with it. My next cup will be a sipdown and that is more than okay with me.
I love how whenever I want to have a massive tea drinking day, it never happens.
I gotta start buckling down on my caffeine intake.
Did you know that I’m on doctor’s orders to cut caffeinated tea out of my life because I have… heart problems? Hhaha I’m terrible and I don’t listen. I told my doctor that I LOVE tea and I can’t just cut it out so he’s like “Just limit it to one cup of black tea a week but that’s it. Only stick to herbals” and look at where I’m at now haha.
Soooo I’m going to stop drinking my caffeinated teas starting at 7pm and go on with my herbals. Out of the 120 teas I have, I only own about 10 caffiene-free teas, which is actually quite sad. Than you shmiracles for sending this tea my way! Actually, I think it was supposed to be some sort of surprise, but I texted her a couple days ago about DAVIDs Spring Collection and she was all By the way, I sent you teas and things and I was all WOW OKAY. A lot of my teas are either sipdowns, or I’ve already given them to her so yeah. Gotta wait a while till I get more new teas hehe :)
Can I just buy like ten pounds of this tea and throw it in my bathtub, please. Dude. I just wanna bathe in this tea because it SMELLS SO GOOD. Nice and fruity and lovely and THE MANGO. I’ve never had tea with mango in it and I’m quite excited! I’m Filipino so I kinda have to love mango! I visited the Philippines a while back and I’d have one or two mangoes a day because.. dude. Philippine mangoes are like 5000% better than the ones we sell in America okay.
The tea itself is actually really nice! It would have done better with either less or no chamomile at all, though. Chamomile is good! But it definitely overpowers the tartness of the mango I JUST WANT MORE TART. It has a bit of a bite which I love because MANGO.
I’m probably going to see how this does as a cold brew. I’ll set it up tonight and grab it in the morning before class :)
I am not a huge fan of chamomile. I don’t actively dislike it, but I would never reach for it. But Mango Lassi seems to take all the good parts of chamolmile, and add something special. I really like this tea. The flavor is predominantly chamomile, but with a soft sweet background, almost like candy.
It makes for a sweet tasty combination.
Surprisingly the mango is not at all prominent!
The first time I had this tea, I sweetened it slightly. The most prominent flavor and scent to me was chamomile. After the chamomile, there was a strong citrus taste and vanilla last. The finish seemed to have more mango. I would have said that this tea would definitely not be a re-buy for me.
The second time I made it, I sweetened and also added milk. This totally changed the tea for me. The milk brought out the creaminess and toned down the chamomile and citrus- which is just what I wanted! I will re-buy!!
