I tried Peaches & Cream this morning at work, but am going to write a detailed note on it later once I pay more attention to the cup lol. This review will be fast as well since I’ m at work.
The dry smell reminded me of something so familiar..I finally figured it out, Stormy Night! Yes, that cinnamon-coconut smell was in this one as well, I think it’s DT’s cinnamon that makes it unique and easy to pick out. I steeped for around 4 or 5 mins with 185 degree water (variable temp kettle at work :D ) and the steeped scent is also very cinnamony.
As for the flavor, there is quite a mix of things going on in here lol. Oh and to me, it brews up far too light to taste so darn spicy lol. This is a cinnamon heavy blend, I get the peppercorns in the aftertaste, and a bit of the pineapple in there as well. I think the ginger adds some heat to the peppercorns, but I’d like more ginger and less cinnamon lol. The coconut lends a slight creaminess overall and adds to it even tasting a bit like Stormy night lol, there must be a similar spice combo in that one.
Overall, this might be a bit too cinnamony for me to really like this chai, but it is still very drinkable and it is refreshing. I also like that it’s a lighter chai option without a black tea base, so if I need a spicy, warming tea fix, this one will do. I am going to let my mom try this one, I bet she will LOVE it haha. Happy to have tried, but currently I don’t think it’s in the restock list.
