I got 50g of this in an online order when I bought my Therm-O, because I’d always wanted to try it and it was always sold out in my local shop.

My first cup, I had it with a touch of sugar and no milk (was testing out Things That Worked for travelling with the Therm-O), but it steeped quite a long time and while it tasted good, it wasn’t really “right.”

The second cup I had to force myself to finish. I hadn’t completely rinsed the Therm-O of my Pumpkin Chai with cream and sugar when I made the cup at school, and something happened that made it smell SO RANCID. I was gagging.

This time, I steeped it my preferred way – three minutes with boiling water, two sugar cubes, and just enough milk to tell that there’s milk in it. The smell is better but still kind of weird (but I think it’s going to take a long time to get over the memories of Cup #2), and the taste is smooth and pleasant. I’m not picking up too much coconut, though.

Excellent! One of the best teas I’ve ever had. Clearly, it was delivered to us by the hands of the gods themselves. Would stockpile, order online, or kill to get more.

Good, and will keep stocked in my shelf if convenient.

Okay, nothing special.

Not very good. Would accept out of politeness, and then add too much sugar to mask the taste.

Bleh. I would rather drink mud.
