I’m a big chai fan but I must admit in the past I’ve always been hesitant about rooibos, so I was very intrigued at the prospects of a chai rooibos. Overall though I was quite pleased.
The coconut gives the tea a slight sweetness which isn’t usually found in most chai teas that I drink. It’s still got the woodiness I’ve come to know from rooibos teas, but not so much so that it’s off putting. I felt the tea could be a bit spicier, and I’m assured that the longer I steep it the spicier it would be.
While it’s perhaps not my favourite (or my go to) chai, it’s definitely one I will revisit.
