drank Mango Lassi by Butiki Teas
10 tasting notes

This is my first tea review, so do be kind!

I tried this unsweetened, though sweetener is recommended, and liked it very much; it actually seemed to have a slight coffee note, making me think it would be a good sub in the morning; the cardamom did not hurt (but it is a favourite spice of mine).

The mango isn’t too strong at first, though it shows up a bit better once the tea has cooled just a little bit (I’m never able to resist that first, lip-burning sip) and as I drank more of the tea, though it wasn’t as mango-y as I expected until it was flat out cold (busy day). It’s a well-rounded, full-bodied tea, not as sweet as some other rooibos. Though it could certainly benefit from some sweetening, it’s fine without, and would probably be pretty yummy with a splash of cream. The second steep turned out nicely as well—I actually may have liked it a little better than the first! Overall, I liked it a great deal.

Driving people nuts with my insistence on good water during photo shoots for far too long. My family does not understand my need for loose-leaf tea, and I have tired of trying to explain other than just handing them a cup.

My tea comes along with me from sea to shining sea—as a documentary photographer, I get to enjoy a great deal of travel photographing the country and my especial joy, classic cars. Leaving our pets—collie Benedict and cats Buckley & Lucy—behind is a bit tough, but they are at least happy to see us come home!
