drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
79 tasting notes

Finally getting to the last couple of little sample packs I have kicking around, some where teas I already had and other were ones I hadn’t even heard of yet from DT. This round it is Coco Chai Rooibos, and to be honest the dry aroma of this tea almost put me off of it because it was so pungent and floral the first thing that came to my mind was potpourri.

The taste is a little bit all over the place, I get the cinnamon nicely but there is a multitude of other flavors that I really can’t pin down to anything specific. I will say that even though there is a bunch of stuff going on flavor wise it is certainly a tasty tea. That being said I don’t think it is one I will go out of my way to purchase, as a few people here have said it would probably make a good latte but my sample was only enough for one cup so I wont get a chance to try that out.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
