drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
125 tasting notes

I received a sample of this tea in my latest order from DAVIDsTEA. I wasn’t sure what to expect because I never had rooibos before.

Glad to say I was pleasantly surprised. The tea was delicious. The dry sample smelled great of cinnamon and coconut and I liked the visual touch of pink peppercorns.

I steeped it according to directions: in boiling water for 7 minutes.

After steeping the tea continued to impress me. It filled my kitchen with beautiful smell of cinnamon and spice and it tasted delicious. Coconut was less pronounced now and instead I got a strong taste of apples with cinnamon. Kind of like eating apple cinnamon pie. Yum!

My only problem with this tea was that it contains artificial flavouring. That something I definitely want to avoid in my teas. I really like the taste though and so I will probably look for something similar but with all natural ingredients.

You can see my review of this tea with pictures in my blog below.

Profile

Bio

It’s been a while since I joined Steepster and I think it’s time to write up a bio.

I’m a stay at home, married mom with 5 kids, most of them grown up. Only one remains with us now, my 7 year old sunshine which I push out of the house to school every morning and it’s not an easy thing to do.

I’m an avid gardener during a growing season and my goal is to grow most of the food we eat and save some for winter too. I’m also an artist and a huge nerd. I read books, I play computer games. My very first game was World of Warcraft (was addicted to it solid for a year, lol), then came Skyrim, Minecraft (with my 7 year old) and few others less memorable along the way.

I began drinking tea on regular basis just over 2 years ago when I decided to kick my morning coffee habit. It wasn’t pretty… I couldn’t function for 3 days straight but survived. A year ago I discovered loose tea and found Steepster… The rest is history.

Some of the staples in my cupboard are Dragonwell green tea, Japanese sencha, Silver Needle white tea, green roobois, darjeeling and pu’erh. I also drink variety of flavored teas for fun and I like to order tisanes and mix them with straight teas for even more variety.

Recently I found out how much I love oolong so will be stocking up on that as well.

There are few other tea lovers in my family: my mom and dad, my oldest daughter, my son and my youngest 7 year old. She loves when I try out different teas and I always have to remember to make enough for her to have a little taste.
