This smells so good at first. It has the warm scent of spice that reminds me that autumn is on its way. (I love autumn!) But it also has a tropical note to it from the coconut. As the tea continues to cool, I notice that the scent changes slightly and becomes slightly more herbaceous. It still smells alright, but, it now smells like chai spices and coconut AND medicine. So, it smells not as good as it did when I first sat down with this cup.
The coconut is the first flavor I noticed and it is the strongest flavor. It gives the cup a sweet, creamy flavor. As far as the spices – this isn’t as spicy as other chai blends I’ve tasted. Perhaps its the coconut that softens the spice flavor, or maybe it’s the presence of other ingredients like the Dandelion root and Milk Thistle that mellows the spices somewhat.
By my recollection (and I’m not saying that my recollection is in any way precise), this is the second tea/tisane that I’ve tried with Neem in it. I wasn’t all that crazy about the first one I tried… and I associated that with the Neem. But I’m enjoying this. Not my favorite tea that I’ve tried from Teamotions, but, it’s not bad either.
