429 Tasting Notes
I’m surprised they can call it Thai tea without any black tea in it… I just went and looked it up and it does indeed have black tea. Generally a Ceylon but sometimes Assam is used. According to the Wiki. I’d be very tempted to try this with the thai tea I have.
Regardless this is still pretty good. Not quite chai and not quite thai but it does have the flavors of both. Creamy and slightly spicy.
Edit: So curiosity got the best of me and I brewed a tea bag with this tea. Turned out better then I expected. Bet it would be pretty good with some nice frothy almond milk too.
I wish this wasn’t called River song. It brings back memories of the pond study I did back in highschool. Which isn’t all bad except that there was always this gross pond scum smell in the pods because we had to go mucking about in the lakes. Anyway… you need all that to understand that I am kinda tasting that smell as I drink this. Bits of coconut and woodsy ceylon base. But overall not really a blend I like. If you want a good coconut chai try Zhena’s Gypsy tea.
Have you ever eaten strawberries and cream oatmeal? This smells EXACTLY like that. But with a tiny hint of chocolate. It kinda tastes like that too expect with chocolate added. At first it was tasting good but as it’s cooled down I am not liking it as much. It’s better warmer.
A very interesting taste for a unique blend of ingredients. Also an odd color in my cup. I’m glad the hibiscus isn’t quite as strong as I thought it was going to be. The vanilla adds a nice touch. Now I’m going to go to the store with my daughter and get ear wax removal drops because this is driving me crazy and going to work like this would make me crabby.
