This is a tea swap thanks to the lovely Jillian on Steepster. I think if I had more time a little honey or sweetener might enhance this tea, maybe creme? Sad the coconut isn’t a stronger flavor. This however is a wonderfully smooth and spicy chai.

Yeah, unfortunately it really doesn’t deserve the name ‘Coconut’ Chai. I’m glad you’re enjoying it though!

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
