Lemongrass and coconut: two very awesomesauce fragrances and flavours. This actually smells and tastes like Thai coconut curry to me. See, I love that stuff, but not sure if I like the idea of it being translated into a tea. I tie that curry flavour to rice and vegetables, seafood, etc, so it’s weird taking a sip and thinking you’re eating a plate of that.

The tea base is quite mild. I can taste a bit of sharpness from the leaf but the curry is distracting me. It reminds me of the time I made stir-fry vegetables with lemon ginger rooibos. That was… interesting.

TeaFrog has a Thai Coconut green tea without the curry that sounds similar without the weirdness.

I’ve had that one and they taste very similar to me! Actually, I think I got more lemongrass from TeaFrog’s.

I’m still trying to acquire a taste for Thai curry—we have a nice local mom-and-pop restaurant that does it nicely. However, here in the great uncultural rural midwest, I haven’t had the opportunity to try Indian curry to compare and constrast.

Ah, I think I prefer Indian curry. More depth overall, I think. I went to a Tibetan restaurant the other day and tried their curry. Very similar to Indian. I’m sure the most nearby city has a couple good Indian restaurants so you can try it out. It seems to be getting more and more popular.
