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*.

This is another sample that came with my Davids Tea order. Apparently it’s one of DT’s most popular blends and I can certainly see the appeal even if it isn’t necessarily my absolute fav (I still reserve that place for their pumpkin chai).
You can barely tell it’s a rooibos base apart from the lack of caffeine as the coconut and spices are quite distinctive. There are cloves and cinnamon in there as well as a slight bite from the peppercorns and he coconut gives the tea just the right amount of sweet, nutty flavour. I wouldn’t mind actually buying some of this tea down the road when my cupboard isn’t stuffed to overflowing.
Mmm, I got this as a sample in my recent shipment fram David’s Tea and I quite like it. The coconut flavour brings a sweetness that blends nicely with the spicy chai. I can definitely taste coconut, and cinnamon, and a bunch of other flavours that are all blending together into “chai spice”. I think it’s the ginger and peppercorn giving it a little bit of extra zip. I’m sure this would be delicious with milk and sugar, but I’m pretty happy right now drinking it plain. I might have to do a head-to-head comparison between this and David’s cinnamon chai rooibos next. :)
Flavors: Cinnamon, Coconut, Spicy
I’m having this as a cheapie latte today (filled a mug halfway with almond milk, microwaved it, topped it off with boiled water, then steeped forever) and again, it is delicious. I’ve been trying to wean myself off of mass caffeine consumption (I have a hunch my daily tea/coffee intake was bordering on obsessive and/or unhealthy) and so. Herbals and rooibos? I’m coming for you.
Not sure if I am a huge fan of red rooibos overall, but I still think this tea is delicious. The chai blend is just spicy enough and the added coconut is a sweet and creamy addition. I made this into a latte and it was fantastic. It brews a little weaker than I would like, but I’m still playing around with what I think is the best prep.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Coconut, Peppercorn
Oh my goodness. This is a fantastic tea! It’s my absolute favourite from Davids. I had picked this up with another tea, and was not impressed by the other so when I went to try this tea, I thought it would be a disappointment as well. This tea surpassed my expectations by far. It was an AMAZING blend.
This tea has a beautiful taste. The first sip, I wasn’t so sure. But as I continued to drink it, it just got better and better.
I can taste ginger, spice, and creamy coconut. A nice spicy aftertaste was left in my mouth even about half an hour after finishing the tea. I didn’t add any milk or sweetener to this yet the creaminess of the coconut did it’s job fully. I am pleased, especially since this is a fairly inexpensive tea!
EDIT: Upped the rating on this one to 100. I think it’s safe to say this is my new favourite tea. Tastes GREAT as a latte! Took advantage of DAVID’S web special… got their Chai Collection buy one get one free! Can’t WAIT for it to arrive!
Also, I forgot to mention before, this tea can be steeped as long as you need. The flavour gets better the longer it steeps, so I just leave mine in the tea ball and I’m good to go.
Flavors: Creamy, Ginger, Spices, Sweet
Tea #6 from Another Traveling Tea Box?!?!?!
I like this tea…I can definitely taste the coconut, and the combination of spices, with a little kick at the end from the peppercorns. The spices are not overpowering. I almost get a chocolate taste (even though there is no chocolate)…not anything overpowering…just subtle.
I think this tea works very well together, and I would buy it.
