Yeaaaaah, I don’t know about this combo. Coffee and chai? Well, the husband will probably drink it if I don’t. He’s a coffee fanatic! The dry leaf aroma is about as weird as it gets. I took a sip and immediately said, “Oof, that is gross!” So yeah, this is not my cup of tea.
At first, it has a weird coffee flavor. The spices don’t help this taste more like tea. It’s just strange. Once the coffee flavor ebbs, the aftertaste is all chai spices. That’s the only redeeming quality of this tea. I am afraid coffee beans do not belong in my tea. This is just gross.
Not surprisingly, the husband does enjoy it. LOL! Well, at least someone will drink this free sample. :) My husband did want me to note that he didn’t enjoy this as much as the North African Mint tea he had earlier today. He rates this one at 50, while I’m giving it a whopping 8 for being undrinkable. That nets this tea a rating of 29.
