drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
97 tasting notes

I wasn’t expecting to like this tea. Given that my friends are crazy about it and that it’s a rooibos, I thought that I would take one sip and say “no thanks”. But my room mate is slowly but surely going through the teas in her calendar, and this is one that we both wanted to try.

The first cup I had was “meh”. I think this was largely due to making a pot and simply not having enough tea. I purchased the chai sampler as a little present to myself last week and this tea came with it. It’s my favourite of the bunch! It’s my late-night paper-writing chai. I’m usually not a fan of strange things in tea (ie. coconut), but the spices together with the coconut create a really smooth blend. Not to mention, the rooibos is barely present in flavour – something I appreciate given that I’m not a huge rooibos fan.

Will purchase a tin when my sample is done. Awesome.

Bio

How the story goes is that one day, a feeble, weakened graduate student decided to stop ingesting so much caffeine and additives (sugar, cream, milk) and instead headed for the land of tea.

I should probably mention that I’ve been drinking tea… pretty much since I can remember. The beauty of growing up in a still-semi-Euro family! I was introduced to green teas and pu’erhs by herbalists and acupuncturists in my teens.
