drank Coconut Chai by Zhena's Gypsy Tea
1196 tasting notes

So without thinking, I dropped 2 sachets into a pot of milk and water and let it simmer away for a few minutes.

I take a sip. SPICY. My initial reaction was just “ooh gurl no” until I realized this stuff must be potent enough not to need to be doubled for this preparation. Although I think maybe I’d use 2 for 12 oz of liquid. So I filled my mug with more milk and microwaved it for 20 seconds to get it warm again.

I’m kind of disappointed this doesn’t actually contain any coconut. So it doesn’t really taste like coconut…it doesn’t even smell like coconut.

However I can drink this chai! It has more of a well rounded group of spices compared to the only other chai I have right now…the very clove-y one. But this one is peppery too, and I can taste cardamom and cinnamon and nutmeg and everything. Just…no coconut.

I’m even using coconut milk in here but it’s one that never really imparts a flavor, so there’s no use relying on it. Booooo. I’ll definitely be on the lookout now for a coconut chai that contains some legitimate coconut flakes.

I would love to try a coconut chai, I mean with coconut flavor. hopefully not imitation tasting though.

Whispering Pines Tea Company

:) yes, you can get mate AND rooibos and they are all heavenly coconutty :)

Havn’t had the guts to try Mate yet, I’m afraid it would taste to much like coffee, which I hate and cannot drink anyways.

Whispering Pines Tea Company

AHH! NOOO, Mate tastes nothing like coffee! DOOOO IT!

Whispering Pines Tea Company

^ At least green maté doesn’t. I haven’t had roasted maté yet so I’m not sure about that.
