I visited Shaktea while on a trip to Vancouver, and my friend beside me was drinking this tea. I’m not normally a big fan of chai purely because it has to hit a perfect balance of spices and most I have tried seem to miss the mark, but something about this one smelled quite nice as my friend was sipping it, so when we left I took a bag home with me.
Boy am I glad that I did! This chai hits that balance of spices that I had been looking for, and on top of it you get this lovely creamy coconut flavour. The spices don’t overwhelm the coconut, and the coconut doesn’t overwhelm the spices – they work together in perfect harmony. I enjoy this tea with a splash of almond milk or simply plain, and I’ve been craving it so much since I ran out that I ordered 250g of it online and I’m sure I’ll be going through it quite fast. I’ve tried other coconut chai before, but this one is by far the best I have tasted!
