The mango flavor is so overpowering you can barely taste the coconut.

This luscious all-natural blend of sweet mango, creamy coconut and ethically sourced Indian turmeric isn’t just delicious hot or iced – every 50 g / 2 oz purchase gives two weeks of clean water to a developing community in India. What’s more, we sprinkled in warm traditional spices like ginger and cardamom. The result? A flavourful fruity twist on chai that’s as rich and vibrant as the country you’re giving back to.
Price per 50g: $8.98

As it happens, I actually still have some of this left, under its other name (I’m drinking “ME to WE India” right now). Which is ok, because it’s actually a fairly pleasant blend. Sweet pineapple with a touch of coconut, and just a hint of spice, are what I get from this blend, making it a little like an extra-fruity pina colada.
In random news, my concern for the potential demise of Steepster resulted in me having my husband write a macro (or something) to pull all my tasting notes/scores into an Excel sheet so that I won’t lose them in the event that the site goes down permanently, which I certainly hope it doesn’t. The export isn’t pretty, but at least it saves everything I need (with bonus fun sortability!) I feel like something like this was used by others at some point… (?) so I might have just missed that boat, but if there’s anyone out there who wants to get their notes in Excel format, I can get him to do that. It was just going to be a ridiculously laborious task for me to go through 420 or so pages of notes and copy them, and apparently he had fun spending a Friday night working on it for me…
This is my favourite tea, I’m stocked-up on it. This is surprising, considering I generally don’t like fruity teas, but this is an exception. I can leave the tea bag in with this one because it never goes bitter, and sometimes I’ll reuse the tea bag in my water bottle.
Flavors: Apple, Mango, Pepper, Pineapple
Hilariously, the tea I love at DAVIDs is the one every else is meh about – and the tea I disliked (Lemon Pound Cake) is the one everyone raves about.
Go figure. More for me!
I asked the staff member serving me, after grabbing a ridiculous amount of small samples, “Okay, what else do I NEED to try?”
He immediately said this tea. I’m in. Turmeric, pepper, cardamom and pineapple? YEESS…. (and why have I not thought of this myself?)
I imagined this to be like a lassi, minus the yogurt, and I was spot on. This is DELICIOUS.
That is, if you like chai-like spices and sweet, sweet pineapple.
I do. So there ya go.
I could drink this all day. Oh wait, I did yesterday. I let it steep 7 minutes the first time around, and about half an hour the second time around. Even my 10-year-old, the pickiest of all tea drinkers, loved it.
Flavors: Pepper, Pineapple, Spicy, Sweet
This was another in-store sample that was just…well…underwhelming. This isn’t a tea that would normally interest me, but a fruity tea with chai spices sounded intriguing. Thankfully it wasn’t just a spiced piña colada. It had some nice depth despite the sample tasting a bit diluted. The mango overshadowed the pineapple note for me (thankfully), and the spices were subtle but present. It’s not a tea I’d rush out to try again, but it wasn’t bad.
I got 50g of this for at home, since it tasted pretty good in store. Surprising, because I’m not a huge fan of cardamom or black pepper… I mostly taste the mango, pineapple and coconut. Although I do get the aftertaste of turmeric/ginger. It’s a pretty tropical taste. Also, I kinda get a hint of banana, even though there is no banana in this tea. Weird, but pretty good. (Could do with less coconut though) hahaha
Flavors: banana, Coconut, Ginger, Mango, Pineapple
I had this as an iced tea yesterday! I bought just enough of a sample to try it and it was delicious. I steeped it for a long time! This tea had a very strong coconut and mango flavour with a slight spicy flavour at the end of each sip. I’ve never had tumeric before so I don’t know if I can taste it or not. It was very sweet without adding anything to it. I really enjoyed it and will be stocking up for the summer! I can see this one being a go to tea for sure!!!
Flavors: Black Pepper, Coconut, Mango, Pineapple
I was so skeptical of this tea-I thought the ingredients would taste so bad together but people online have been saying it is amazing, so naturally, I just had to try it. And they were right! It tastes SO good! Weirdly, I found this blend tasted a lot like a pina colada! I will be stocking up on this tea and I can feel good about it as the proceeds are going to charity for clean drinking water just like the Me to We Kenya which is equally as delicious!
