From Zhena's Gypsy Tea

Finest quality ceylon tea blended with cardamom, ginger, and clove.

A robust and full flavored Black Tea accented with exotic imperial spices. The bold concentrated character of this lush black tea lends itself well to the full notes of cardamom, ginger and clove. The sweet hint of tropical coconut fragrantly fills the cup, offering an inviting taste of paradise to savor from any spot on the map. Delicious with a splash of milk. A bright and flavorful steep. Sunglasses not included.

Thanks, Incendiare for the tea bag sample! I’ve wanted to try this one since joining Steepster.

I’m on the mainland for some birthdays this weekend, and it’s raining moderately here. Definitely fall weather, aka- chai weather.

I was feeling pretty lazy after basic yoga and crummy Chinese food for lunch, so I just threw the bag in a pot, filled it up to a quarter with boiling water for three minutes, then topped the pot up with warm milk for an additional three minutes. It’s not particularly elegant but this method gets the job done.

I didn’t expect the coconut to be so dominant; it makes the cup exceptionally smooth and creamy. The sweet burn of ginger and rounding out of cloves are the next apparent things. It’s not a fiery cup, in fact, it’s rather light, but it’s near perfect for the sleepy chill weather outside.

I’ll think about getting more of this for an decent, quick, and easy chai.

Glad you enjoyed it! Seems like most people are pleasantly surprised by it.

This packed a lot more flavour than I expected! It sat around here, for a month, out of the ziplock too. It’s a hardy little tea bag.

Amariel

I was pleasantly surprised by this one, actually, and wondered why I waited so long to try it.

Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea Box #4
I saw this at world market last week, and when i saw it in thr box i knew i had to try it. This tea will definitely warm you up. The spices linger in your throat and on your tongue. After adding cream it brought the coconut out. While I did enjoy it, not one of my favorite coconut teas and will not be purchasing it after all :)

I have a sample of this to try. I think my SIL will like it, so ewe will see. They don’t sell it where I live, but there are several stores that carry it near where my kids live.

Backlog from Saturday: I had this tea after dinner at my Great Aunt Victoria’s house. This is the second bagged tea I’ve had by Zhena’s Gypsy tea and so far I’m really impressed! The coconut was really natural tasting and the spices were strong, but well-balanced. The base added a nice maltiness to the mix.

I haven’t been updating lately while I was on vacation in Maine. I was staying at my grandfather’s and he only has an ancient pc with dial-up connection that doesn’t always load pages. I couldn’t get any signal for my phone either. It was kind of nice to get away from a computer altogether actually for a few days. I am kind of sorry though I missed out on Butiki’s sale. Try as I might, I couldn’t get a signal that day.

There’s always November!

I know I have logged this one but I also know it’s been like 4 years.
I had a cup of this yesterday – loose. It was alright! It was Chai with Coconut. It was sweet but spicy. Tropical but ‘of the earth’, too!

Sandy and I bought a few new teas in Southern Season yesterday, so we are sitting down for a marathon tea tasting day. (Which reminds me, congratulations to Sandy on your first half marathon. You can add that to your Century Rides!).

I was staring at the walls of teas with my eyes glazing over at how many there were when I caught sight of this and a little neuron fired in my brain. I practically screamed, “That’s the tea that JacquelineM likes!”. Naturally we had to buy it and try it, and also thanks to JacquelineM I am having mine with an everything bagel. Until JacquelineM, I was a bagel atheist, but it turns out I was a bagel agnostic and Jacquelime showed me the way.

I could smell and taste the ginger and clove but I wasn’t getting much coconut, mostly just a creaminess.

We decided to take Mike Harney’s advice and slurp slurp slurp. That really amplified the clove and took it over the top but I didn’t pick up more coconut. I am drinking it plain. Perhaps the onion of my everything bagel is interfering with the coconut, or maybe it is just a hint and that is why I am getting creaminess instead of coconut. Either way, this is very good. It reminds me a bit of Stash Tea Holiday Chai. And I do believe we have just finished the whole pot!

Thank you! but it was a full marathon & I want credit for the extra 13.1 miles

Veronica

Your line about being a bagel atheist/agnostic made me laugh. I’ve never thought of food in that particular way before. :)

ashmanra

WOW! I am impressed! Somehow I was thinking you ran a half! You better get that sticker for the back of your car…I sure would!

Mmmm! I was expecting the coconut to be totally overpowered by the chai spices, but man was I wrong! The coconut is light and sweet and perfectly balanced with the cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Delicious!

Dexter

I really like this one too. :))

I’m a huge fan of coconut!

Tea #10 from HHTTB2

I brewed this with 1.5 tsp of tea to 2 oz of water. Then sweetened with a teaspoon of sugar and added in 6 oz of warm milk.

This is really, really smooth. Like liquid velvet smooth. The coconut is sweet and strong, and the spiced are refined. I’m not always really big on chai, but this is oh so good.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

Got this in a little Zhena’s sampler. A friend of mine RAVES about this tea, and I didn’t feel like fussing with loose again today, so I grabbed a sachet of this.

It really does smell delicious! The typical chai spices with a hint of toasted coconut come across. As for the taste? I think I may have made it too weak. It does have a nice flavor (the spices and coconut balancing out nicely), but it tastes a little watered down, so I may do a longer steep next time!

It’s basically always a super tasty decision. It’s stronger with boiling water, so that may have been the issue.

I wouldn’t steep it too much longer, it’s bittered on me a few times.

the quiet life

I tried to steep it longer (only by a minute or two), and it was still kinda watery. Maybe I should use two sachets per 12 oz cup? I’ll give it a shot.

Thank you Will Work For Tea for sending a ton of this! I sipped some of this last night. I love the unsteeped scent of this! Very spicy! The steeped scent is less appealing… not sure why. A chai hardly ever disappoints me. This one didn’t. However, the coconut there was non-existant. I don’t mind, as sometimes coconut in tea is a bit gross to me. This works as a regular chai for me, anyway. I can never have enough of those!

Will Work For Tea

At least it’ll get more love in your cupboard than it ever did in mine! :)

I received this in a swap from will work for tea
I love the look of the tea, you can see all the spices in it and the coconut too. What i dont like is the smell, its very off putting, I can’t quite place what it smells like.
Once steeping the.spices start to come out, it smells very.nicely spiced and no one spice over powers the other.
On first sip you get all the spices blending perfectly just as in the smell, however I am not tasting any coconut whatsoever. The full spice flavour continues throughout the cup and if I try really hard i get a hint of coconut after the sip where it lingers on your tongue.
Over all a good spiced tea, but not a coconut one. I have yet to find a hot tea where the coconut really comes out at the front. I am glad to have this one though.

That was part of the disappointment for me as well (finding the coconut taste).
