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*.

My friends talked a lot of smack about this one, but I am standing by it. I like that it’s decaf, so I can chug it without risking the jitters.
As a side note, is it true that rooibos is good for asthma?
I read this while researching rooibos, but does anyone have any, like, actual knowledge of this? (Or anecdotes supporting it?)
All I could find was this study, which seemed inconclusive:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11758901
I haven’t noticed much of a difference in my own asthma, but I’m usually drinking tea while sitting at my desk, not really straining my lungs.

Fjellrev

That’s a good question!

mtchyg

First off, respect for the official research article. My inner nerd loves that. Second, I do wonder if it is beneficial for asthma, how much would need to be ingested. I know they are talking about extracts there so I would be curious as to how many cups per day that would translate to in order to get the same benefit.

Super Starling!

@mtchyg: I kept finding things about rooibos and asthma, but they were on these “everything green is good for you without any drawbacks, ever! THIS WILL SAVE YOU FROM CANCER” sorts of hippie-dippie websites. Those sites can be a good place to start, but I don’t take them as actual medical information. I had to dig around. Unfortunately, my exercise routine varies a lot, and if it’s just me alone testing it, there’s no control. I have no way of really studying it, unfortunately. I yearn to know more.

mtchyg

I hear ya. I just appreciate an actual legit medical journal article. BTW, you are pretty much my favorite reviewer on here. Love your funny randomness.

Super Starling!

I can’t keep it together very well, dude. It’s a bunch of geeky pop culture references and candy tea. There are so many people on here that seem to have their lives together. “On the second steep, I noticed some wood flavor with light notes of cherry and licorice.” And I’m like, “This is the kind of tea Splinter would drink in his sewer apartment.” I like to hope there’s a place for us all.

mtchyg

I’ll admit, I lean more towards non-altered loose leaf. But I completely appreciate and admire your silly creativity. I’m actually more like that IRL honestly but with tea apparently I get a little more serious. But I don’t know. Some of my reviews have some silliness but… You da real MVP

Super Starling!

There are times I wish I could turn it off. Sometimes I feel like I’m too “schtick”-based. Like a character from Big Bang Theory or New Girl instead of an actual person. I never felt this way until those types of shows became popular, then I began to fret that I was some sort of geeky “manic pixie dream girl” stereotype. Back in middle school, I thought I was too alone, now I’m oversaturated. ALWAYS A COMPLAINT.

mtchyg

Haha you grew into your stereotype. Well, if there is ever curiosity to go more straight laced on the tea, let me know for a swap. You can school me on the yummy flavored style of teas and perhaps I can find something “plain” that speaks to you.

Super Starling!

I’d love to! Which of mine would you like to try? Everything in my cupboard is available except the Pecan Ice Cream, which is very close to steepdown. Send me a message!

Note to self: you don’t hate this one. It’s just a bit weak for you, so you need to use more tea.

From OST’s stash sale.

I made this as a latte since it smelled like it would be rather sweet, and that’s how I prefer my rooibos chai anyway. It was deliciously smooth and creamy, but a bit sweeter than I prefer and surprisingly lacking in spice for a chai. It might be nice for blending, bu t I find it somewhat lacking on its own.

Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Sweet

Arby

I find I can really taste the peppercorns and ginger when I let it steep longer than 6 minutes. Because it is a rooibos, you can steep as long as you want without it getting bitter. It is one of my favourite chais, but I only like it steeped a long time. I find it is normally extremely flavourful, perhaps you got an older sample?

rosebudmelissa

It’s possible. Or maybe I didn’t steep it long enough, or maybe some of the spice was drowned by the milk.

This tea is a nice pick me up on a loooong night shift tonight. Brewed up it has a lovely spicy aroma from the chai base – cinnamon, cloves, ginger and peppercorns are all listed in the ingredients. Flavour wise, it’s a nice balance of creamy coconut and cardamom mixed with the chai spices. Definitely a pleasant mixing of flavours. I got this as a sample pack from my last David’s order.

Was thinking about purchasing this again. It’s been a long time since I’ve had it and it makes a nice latte

I picked this up recently, in an attempt to find a low or no caffeine chai. I picked up the Kashmiri Chai a few weeks ago, and the blend of chai spices and green tea was nice. I decided to give this one a go, despite my dislike of rooibos, especially red rooibos. But I like chai, and I like coconut, and I was hoping that these two flavours might dominate and reduce the bits of rooibos that I dislike, and I am happy to say that I think I was right. I had some of this yesterday with a headache, and I was pleasantly surprised. I only picked up a small amount of this to try, but I will try a bit more when this sample runs out. I think this could be a regular thing for me..

Ive been finding that rooibos teas are becoming my favourite. This was a nice change to the ones I usually drink. Im not the biggest fan of chai, but I did enjoy this tea. It was not lacking in the spice department, could have use a little more cocoa. If you like chai I would recommend this one.

So good, spicy without milk. In a latte, delicious and the flavour is strong!
Two steeps was great. Should I try a third?

Another tea from cooking with tea variety pack.
Dry smell-coconut, sweetness
Wet-rooibos, ginger, cinnamon
Taste- rooibos, coconut, ginger, odd taste. Chai faint would like it to be stronger. As it cooled, I get more chai flavor. But I don’t like the overall taste. It’s either the rooibos base or the flavoring. I can’t remember if I even finished the cup and I definitely didn’t resteep. Not the tea for me. Rating 60
