It’s funny but I didn’t even notice when ordering a sample of this that it had coconut. I noticed it as a mild taste with each sip. I’m not the biggest coconut fan but it blended smoothly with the chai and other flavorings and was a nice treat. I prefer the traditional Masali but this is a refreshing change. Fortunately the lemongrass is mild. I didn’t add milk and drank with one teaspoon of sugar, and, as for other chais I steeped 10 minutes. I see now to steep five but 10 was delish to me. Will finish out the rest of the sample with some milk tossed in, yummy.
