So, this is technically the second time I’ve had this, but I can’t remember much about the first time, because I have been in a haze the last few weeks, and I didn’t really pay much attention to this tea. However, today I was determined to remember to be better about it, and make a note, since Shae was so kind in sharing this with me…as her first trade. :)

I definitely got spice, and your basic chai spice, it seemed to be balanced blend…and although I could not detect it immediately, I got a very nice warming coconut note at the end of the sip. So lovely.

I did not make this latte style, but I did brew a little extra and use milk at the end.

Shae

I’m so glad to hear that you’re enjoying it. :)

drank Coconut Chai by Satori Tea Company
245 tasting notes

Today’s cup is sweet and milky and spiced with ginger. I steeped the tea in 4 ounces of water, then added 4 ounces of steaming milk that I had warmed with a spoon of honey. It’s a luxurious treat this Saturday morning.

This is a good tea, one that smells of ginger snaps and coconut. The deep, dark tea and the spices – it’s a welcome departure from the fruity hibiscus herbals I’ve been drinking this week. Having teas like this one reminds me of why I keep coming back to tea.

Flavors: Cookie, Ginger

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 4 OZ / 118 ML

Sounds tasty!

Shae

It really is! It’s one of two chai I’ve been loving lately, the other being the Vanilla Red Chai from Saint Simons Tea Co.

Plunkybug

I’ll have to check those out! There is a place here that had a chocolate coconut chai that I quite like too.

Shae

Oh wow, chocolate coconut chai sounds incredible! I wonder if you could do something similar by melting chopped chocolate in steamed milk before adding to the steeped tea? I may experiment with that a little.

Saint Simons doesn’t have a website yet (just a Facebook page) so for now I think ordering is limited to phone calls and in-store purchases. I would be happy to send you some to try though if you think you might like it.

Plunkybug

Sure. I could, in return, send you Janet’s. Message me?

drank Coconut Chai by Satori Tea Company
245 tasting notes

This tea smells incredible. It’s all coconut and smells fresh and tropical. The dry mix is mostly tea – small, long, twisted black leaves. There are also small pieces of ginger and cinnamon bark. The aroma kind of reminds me of ginger snap cookies (the good, chewy kind), but I wouldn’t necessarily say that it smells strongly of ginger. The fragrance is sweeter.

The tea leaves must have soaked up quite a bit of water because I don’t have nearly as much in my cup now as I put in. The liquid is dark and a little murky. I smell more ginger now but still the coconut. The taste is mostly ginger, again like those ginger snaps. There is also a bit of tartness there, like the slight acidity of lemon. It doesn’t taste like lemon, but it does have some zip. I don’t taste the cardamom or the cinnamon really, but it’s nice to be able to experience a spice other than cinnamon every now and then. I’m having this cup with a banana muffin and the two are getting along together quite nicely.

Second Steep
8 ounces water + 200 degrees + 10 minutes

I smell more cinnamon this time around. This cup is light in color but still a little cloudy. It still has the sweet perfume. I’m not sure it’s worth the re-steep, but it does taste more spiced with the second cup.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Coconut, Cookie, Ginger, Spices, Sweet, Tart, Tropical

drank Gummy Bear by Satori Tea Company
245 tasting notes

This is such a fun tea. It actually has miniature gummy bears in it! The fragrance is menthol and fruit. I can see lemongrass, hibiscus, and bits of fruit and flower petals. And gummy bears, of course! The color of the liquid is deep – a purplish red. It does smell like fruity gummy bears, but it has more of a berry flavor. It’s also a bit tart. Overall, this tea is fun but not terribly exciting taste-wise. I let it cool a bit on my desk and it’s not bad so this may be one to try later on ice.

Flavors: Berry, Candy, Fruity, Menthol, Tart

I love this. It’s all floral roses and strong, dark tea. It’s such a lovely combination. It actually reminds me of the Lebanese desserts my grandmother used to make growing up. Honey and cream make this a near perfect cup.

Second Steep
8 ounces water + 212 degrees + 10 minutes

I can still taste the rose, but it’s not as strong or as dark as the first cup. It’s definitely still satisfying though.

Flavors: Floral, Rose

This tea smells so wonderful. I just love the combination of strawberries and black tea. It reminds me of Teavana’s Strawberry Slender Puerh which is one of my favorites. Actually, probably my very favorite. It’s been a while since I’ve had this one, though I’m not sure why since I remember enjoying it before. The main difference I think between this one and the Strawberry Slender is the floral aspect. It tastes like rose water even though I don’t detect that in the aroma. The smell is all fruit and berries.

Second Steep
6 ounces water + 212 degrees + 10 minutes

Mmm. This cups is nice and sweet.

Third Steep
6 ounces water + 212 degrees

I let this one steep for several minutes, maybe as many as 20 minutes. The color of the liquid is a much lighter shade and the fruit bits mixed with the tea have swelled and plumped enough to distinguish them as stone fruits. I bit into one and it tasted of peach or maybe nectarine. The steeped tea still has some flavor but I’ll probably stop here since it may be getting a little weaker.

Flavors: Berries, Floral, Fruity, Rose, Stonefruits, Strawberry

This is one of three teas I ordered from Satori and the first I’ve had the opportunity to try. I brewed a full pot over the weekend to share with my brother who was over for a visit. He loved it and drank over half the pot on his own, but my husband didn’t really care for it. I thought it was really something special.

Aside from the tea itself, the dry mix includes bits of fruit and brightly colored pieces that look much like saffron. Red, orange, yellow – almost neon in color and very beautiful. The final cup is sweet and floral to taste and has a lingering flavor that brings to mind rosewater. Creamy and fragrant and somewhat exotic, this is an indulgent cup perfect for a cozy afternoon at home.

Flavors: Floral, Rose

I loved that this tea was naturally sweet with a spice kick! I enjoy it on the cool side.
It’s a great tea, but then again, I am a vata personality!

I picked this tea for it’s light scent hoping I would get something mild yet nice. While the tea was mild, there was a very grassy taste associated with it. There wasn’t any other elements that I noticed beyond that.

drank Earl Grey by Satori Tea Company

Very mild and light tasting. Really lacked a lot of the bolder Earl Grey elements that I normally look for when I get Earl Grey. The soymilk and sugar I added was unable to jazz up the tea.
