drank Mango Diablo by DAVIDsTEA
135 tasting notes

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?

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
