5 Tasting Notes

Sipdown! Trying this again a bit differently. I used about 14 oz of water almost boiling used 2 perfect teaspoons. To try and highlight the flavor I also added an eighth teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, stevia and some Vanilla soymilk. Doing this completely turned around my opinion on this tea. It has a very subtle coconut vanilla flavor, it is very smooth and creamy. I hated this tea the first 3 times I tried it. I’m so glad I finally made it delicious. Townshend’s Coconut Pouchong now has a competitor! To give you an idea of how turned around this tea is now it went from a 35 score for me to the second highest tea I’ve rated!

This is my second time trying this chai from the Zhena’s Chai sampler I bought. I added some soymilk and stevia to bring out the flavor. I cannot taste the coconut at all unfortunately but can taste some vanilla. The chai spices overall are pretty mellow and not very special.

I used a 16oz mug, filled it to the brim with boiling water then added two tea bags held them down at the bottom of the cup with a spoon, steeped for 9 minutes, then added several different types of cinnamon, a little ginger, and a little unsweetened vanilla cashew milk. This cup of tea was a very very nice treat and left me wanting another one when I finished it.

I have been drinking chamomile since I was a child, and have had many brands, this is by far the best I have ever had and I discovered it at a coffee drive thru, it is organic, the buds are fresh the tea bags are in nice packaging, the flavor is sweet and pure. No milk or sweetener was added.

My first time tasting this tea I used about 8.5 oz of water and added nothing to it it was horribly disappointing, this time around I used a little under 8 oz of water and steeped it for at least 7-8 minutes using boiling water. Then I added a bit of ceylon cinnamon, penzley’s spice mixed cinnamon , and a bit of Silk unsweetened vanilla cashew milk. I found that this method really brought out the tiramisu/white chocolate flavor undertones. It is a soothing sugar free dessert at bedtime.
