From DAVIDsTEA

A spicy adventure

If you’re into spice-based chais, this one is for you. It’s got a smooth base of caffeine-free rooibos, and a satisfying kick of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and piquant red peppercorns. Plus there’s a strong hint of coconut, for a slightly exotic twist. Try it straight up or infused in hot milk for a truly fabulous chai latte. It’s the kind of thing you get addicted to.

Ingredients: Fair Trade Certified Rooibos, coconut, cinnamon, ginger root, cardamom, cloves, pink peppercorns. With artificial and natural flavouring*.

I loved all what was in the tea, I just didn’t like how it all tasted together. I brewed a 10 oz cup with 1 tablespoon of leaves, and I thought it was very weak still. I brew my own chai blends very strong, so my palate is always wanting that. I wanted to love this tea, but just couldn’t.

Everything I’ve ever wanted from a chai, it’s spicy, has depth and makes me feel warm and fuzzy. I taste cinnamon, cloves, pepper and coconut…The taste reminds me of the smell of allspice with a soft sweetness hidden somewhere in the middle. It is truly wonderful

Day 11 of my Easter Advent calendar!

To be honest…I don’t understand how anyone can like this tea. Granted, I might be biased for two reasons: 1) I don’t like coconut (more on that below…), 2) I have two friends that make me chai blends from their home countries (Ethiopia and India), so I’m a tad spoiled on the “chai beverage” front.

I can’t usually tolerate coconut in anything, so the fact that I don’t like this tea shouldn’t be all that surprising. That being said, I DO like some teas with coconut in them, especially from David’s; Elf Help is one of my favourite teas on the planet, and that has nice big strands of coconut in it that I don’t even try to pick out (I thought of it at first…). So the presence of the coconut isn’t the only thing that makes this tea disgusting to me.

I can’t quite put my finger on WHY I find this tea so terrible. I think it might be the rooibos, but I’m not sure on that one, either. I love cardamom, I love peppercorns, I love cloves, I love vanilla. I should, except for the coconut, love this tea. But I don’t. I got 5 sips of the tea down before I was all “I can’t do it without barfing” and was about to throw the cup out. I thought I would try a last-ditch effort of throwing out half the cup, filling the other half with milk and adding some agave to see what would happen. I couldn’t make it worse, right? I was already at the point of feeling nauseous from it. Well, the “latte” didn’t make it any better. Five more sips and down the drain it went. I’ll try to find someone to pawn the other cup. Even if I detest the tea, I still feel bad throwing it out.

Verdict: you couldn’t pay me to drink this again.

Not being terribly productive today. I was on the phone with my BF earlier and lost my voice… bleah. Not up to doing much but can’t take a nap due to drinking too much caffeine earlier.

I decided to have this and threw in some extra ginger root. It’s still difficult to taste much but I’m definitely getting a zingy kick out of this concoction. Okay, on to try and do some more reading, maybe if I break it up into smaller chunks it will be do-able.

Being sick and having to study sucks. I hope you feel better soon!

Thanks, I am studying English grammar today which is a VERY dry subject but after that is over I will be able to write a fun essay (hopefully tomorrow!)

Sipdown! I’m not really up for writing a detailed tasting note, but I want to remember for the future that I really didn’t like this one. The clove is too heavy, the rooibos is too weak a base for the spices, and the coconut is doing something weird. It’s not totally gross but it is not pleasant either. Good riddance.

I wasn’t a fan of this one either.

This was a nice late night “snack”, better than I expected. The coconut is detectable and tasty, I was afraid that the chai spices would smother it completely. The rooibos part was not too bold, merging with the other flavors pretty well. Nice, neat cup, especially if you don’t expect any fireworks but still crave something sort of unique.

Wasn’t planning on drinking tea tonight, but I figured that since I have a final tomorrow morning, it’s be nice to have some company as I cram as much information as I can in the next couple of hourse. And if I’m drinking tea this late, it’s gotta be caffeine free!

Coco Chai Roobois. Sipdown (114)
When I read the name of this tea, I totally thought that the coco bit was chocolate! But I reread it and realized it was coconut and I’m slowly developing my palette to enjoy coconut flavoured teas :)

This smells funny. I think it’s the fact that there’s coconut in this and it’s chai and no lemongrass. The last time I had a coconutty chai was Adagio’s Thai Chai and that had tons of lemongrass in it. But this? It’s less tropical and more… rooibos-y.
It’s nice! Definitely taste the coconut and I need to learn to love coconut! I know this tea is great and all, but just the fact that I don’t enjoy coconut as much as others.. yeah. I will finish this cup happily, but if I liked coconut, then I know that I’d enjoy it much more!!

Delicious! I thought that this would be like a blend of adagio’s thai chai and a regular roobios tea, and boy was I wrong! But in a good way. This tea tastes like a creamy coconut cake with clove , honey and and slight ending note of the pink peppercorn. The cream and honey come out even more if you add a bit of raw honey. I think this will definitely be a stable in my house!

This review is going to make me sound like such a shill for David’s Tea, but oh well. Also, it’s a sample sipdown.

So, this is a sample that I got in my recent order from David’s Tea. Not only is the tea from David’s, but I brewed it in a David’s Tea teapot, measured out the leaf using a David’s Tea’s perfect spoon, and sweetened it with some of David’s cinammon-flavoured creamed honey.

On top of that, I’m drinking it at the same time as I’m tasting a bar of David’s Coco Chai Rooibos-infused milk chocolate.

I don’t work for them, I swear! Anyways..

Dry leaf: Bits of rooibos, cardamom, and peppercorns were visible. I was surprised by how fruity this smelled when dry – I thought I detected something lemony. Looking at the ingredients, I was probably responding to a mixture of the ginger, cardamom, and coconut. Quite refreshing, actually.

Steeping parameters: I know that I underleafed this. I only had enough in the sample to make 2 8-oz cups of tea, but my teapot is 24 oz instead. I let the kettle come off the boil for about 5 minutes, then steeped the whole lot for 6 minutes.

Liquor: Orangish red, like a dark terra cotta. The ginger and the rooibos combine here to make a smell that’s surprisingly lemony/fruity. Definitely unexpected. The liquor and the dry leaf smell very similar, and the strongest taste is of ginger and cardamom. I was hoping to get more coconut out of this than I expected (though the coconut flavour is much more present in the tea-infused chocolate). However, because I underleafed this significantly, it’s entirely possible that there are several layers of flavour I’m missing.

Verdict: I think I like the chocolate version better? I’ll definitely finish off this pot, and see how drinking a properly-leafed cup from the store would taste.

I never really liked Chai until I found this tea. It is the perfect tea for a cold winter night.
