I am not sure how I felt about this tea. It was spicy for sure. Nothing special and probably not something I would pick up in the store but it was drinkable.

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*.

As someone who loves spice-y teas, and chai in particular, this is my go-to chai of the moment. I can’t believe how quickly I’ve blown through an entire tin of this tea! I steep it longer than normal (as rooibos can handle a longer steeping without going bitter) and at a slightly lower water temperature. I hardly detect the ginger, but I get strong notes of the cinnamon, clove, cardamom, pepper and the star, coconut – which comes through with the longer steeping, imo. I never would have guessed I would have loved the coconut addition, but I really do – it’s creamy, sweet and what I want out of an evening/dessert type tea. I have tried to like chocolate ‘dessert’ teas to no avail – but coconut absolutely works for me – it’s creamy, rich and sweet without being cloying. I just add a drop of milk and I’m good to go. One of my favourite teas.
Plain and simple: this is a tasty chai but the coco is not prominent. I was really confused because the description says a “strong hint of coconut”, which I didn’t taste at all. Maybe my taste buds were off earlier…
HOWEVER, it is one of the best chais I’ve had at David’s Tea and makes me wants to try more rooibos chais. Also, one of the only rooibos tea blends I like.
Also try it with some steamed milk and honey.
My first chai experience… First of all I must say I am a huge cinnamon fan. Cinnamon Heart is my all-time favourite tea from Davids Tea. So when I first smelled Coco Chai I was very attracted to the cinnamony, spicy aroma. Once brewed, the smell gets very strong but the taste is surprisingly soft and mellow in the mouth! I can’t honestly distinguish the spices but there is a nice ginger aftertaste and the cinnamon warms me up. I added one honey stick to give it a little sweet touch and enjoyed that cup until the very last sip! Will definitely drink this again!
This is an interesting blend and a rather spicy tea, and a nice chai blend.
It’s better hot on a cold day and isn’t something i would drink as a daily tea. It’s great in the moment, and you’ll easily forget this is a rooibos tea. The coconut certainly helps bring all the spice together. I would drink this from time to time, it sounds like it would go great in a latte too.
