Looks like I am the lone dissenter here so far with the reviews of this, but damn, I thought this was tasty. I love the way this smells: coconut, ginger and lemongrass totally wafting into my nose the minute I open up the tin. I can see this is very strong on the herbs, it appears to be about 1/2 herbs and 1/2 rooibos.

This was steeped via regular infuser mug method and provides quite a kick – definitely reminds me of a spicy chai mix. The cinnamon and ginger are both quite strong here, although not quite as potent as the hot cinnamon spice this is for sure cinnamon-y. The lemongrass is very mild in the background but you can tell it is there. It is true that the coconut gets totally overshadowed though…

This seems like it would be a very healthy digestif or after dinner drink. Definitely recommended if you like very spicy potent tea…. yum

Amy, I know I’ve said this before, but if you like this blend, I think you’d enjoy H & S Bangkok Blend. Bancha…coconut….vanilla…lemongrass. Hey-if I like Bangkok Blend, I think I’d like this! Finally, a Rooibos I could enjoy. :)) I just love Thai foods and flavors!

I will try the Bangkok someday!

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta
