I love coconut and I love chai—my search for the perfect combo still continues (and will most likely end with the Yogic coconut chai, which everyone tells me is godly and I FINALLY have a sample of!). Zhena’s is nice but tastes more like coconut water than fresh coconut, so I was excited to try a toasty version.

There is a LOT of coconut in this blend, but it doesn’t really smell anything like coconut, just a strong chai blend. Unfortunately, it kind of tastes the same. The chai aspect is really nice, with bold spices and a strong black base. The coconut is a bit lost, adding a hint of fruitiness but not that big bold coconut taste I was hoping for. I found the coconut a bit weak on their Jasmine Coconut as well (though I did prefer that blend).

So it’s a nice tea and I did enjoy it (definitely look care of my chai craving) but it just didn’t deliver on the coconut front. Maybe I’ll try steeping it for a bit longer, I have enough left to play around with!

Have you tried the Gypsy’s Coconut Chai? It’s pretty decent too. http://www.gypsytea.com/Coconut-Chai-P43.aspx I think I have a couple left if you want to try before you buy. :)

If you order more samples, I’ll throw in some of my new coconut chai for free. It’s the most coconutty perfection on the planet. :)

Or you could wait for Barb’s review on the new coconut chai – It’s going in the mail to her on Monday :)

@KeenTeaThyme: I haven’t tried Gypsy’s Coconut Chai, it’s one of the many kinds I plan to order! I would LOVE a sample if you have any to spare! My coconut addiction is getting out of hand haha.

@Whispering Pines: Thanks so much for the offer! I was actually planning on ordering more samples next week, since you have so many kinds I am dying to try.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
