ok well first the leaves smell like lemon and coconut…i dont like coconut. when its brewed it is a very pretty light amber color…but mine was a bit foggy…may have been my lighting in the kitchen though, it is a junky light i had on. the tea smells like the leaves…still dont like it. so i tasted it plain….still dont like it. i added sugar and it’s now drinkable when its in my mouth i cant taste the coconut so it isnt so bad i can first taste the lemony chai which isnt so bad, but the after flavor left in my mouth is coconut…i will be finishing this cup and hopefully sending this one out to another person who enjoys this.
