It’s starting to cool down quite a bit. So I’m more interested than ever to stock up on some chai blends.

The spices add a special ‘warmth" to my day. Tea leaves before and after brewing, have a strong scent. I think that the ginger really comes out in this blend. It’s not overpowering, just enough to please your senses. As a chai blend, I usually prefer more caffeine but because it tastes really good I’m willing to overlook it.

Does the coconut come through much in this one?

Dorothy

There is definitely some coconut flavor in this. But the ginger really steals the show though.

Oooh, did you say ginger? I’ve been hesitating to try this one because of the coconut.

Dorothy

Well you can taste coconut in the tea. But the ginger, which to me is always a really strong flavor (like lemon grass). Definitely is the first thing you’ll taste. It’s not a heavy coconut flavor like, coconut cream pie. It’s a hint of flavor and it smooths out brew. If you really really don’t like coconut you still might not like this tea anyways though. Alternatively you can pick out the coconut shavings LOL

Feel free to add me on Steepster, I’ll probably add you back. :)

I don’t log tea every time I drink it. Tasting notes tend to be about either one style of brewing or a new experience. It is helpful for me to look back on my notes and see what a tea tasted like or which steeping parameter worked best for me. I try to mostly short steep tea unless it only tastes better with a long steep. I’d rather experience what a tea tastes like over 3 or 12 steeps than just 1 to 3 long steeps.

When I write “tsp”, the measurement I use is a regular western teaspoon. Not a tea scoop

What my tea ratings mean:

99-100: Teas that blow my mind! An unforgettable experience. Savoured to the last drop. I felt privileged to drink this.

90-98: Extraordinary, highly recommended, try it and you won’t be disappointed (and if you are, mail me the tea!)

85-89: Wonderful, couldn’t expect more but not a favourite.

80-84: Excellent, a treasured experience but not a favourite.

70-79: Good but could be better. Above average.

60-69: Average, unexceptional, not something I would buy again. Slightly disappointed. I’d rather drink water.

50-0: Varying degrees of sadness

No rating: Mixed feelings, can’t decide whether I like it or not, not enough experience with that sort of tea to rate it. A dramatic change of heart.
