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*.

Ive been finding that rooibos teas are becoming my favourite. This was a nice change to the ones I usually drink. Im not the biggest fan of chai, but I did enjoy this tea. It was not lacking in the spice department, could have use a little more cocoa. If you like chai I would recommend this one.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cocoa, Spicy
Another tea from cooking with tea variety pack.
Dry smell-coconut, sweetness
Wet-rooibos, ginger, cinnamon
Taste- rooibos, coconut, ginger, odd taste. Chai faint would like it to be stronger. As it cooled, I get more chai flavor. But I don’t like the overall taste. It’s either the rooibos base or the flavoring. I can’t remember if I even finished the cup and I definitely didn’t resteep. Not the tea for me. Rating 60

This is a tea I purchased as part of a 3 tin for the price of 2 promotion at David’sTEA. It was prepackaged, which helped me decide to go with the promotion and know exactly how much I was spending.
Enough about my buying experience. On to the tea. My only previous experience with chai has been through Starbucks Chai Tea Lattes, so I knew brewing this straight would taste different. I was pleasantly surprised by the creaminess of the finished brew, especially the first sip after draining it into my cup. It has a wonderful and silky mouthfeel, with the spice notes I was hoping would still come through in the blend. I did not taste the coconut or ginger the ingredients list speaks of at all.
I would love to learn to make proper lattes out of this, as I think the ones from starbucks are likely to be a lot less palatable now…

Okay, so I got this one as a free sample with an order. I’m glad it was a sample because I’ve been thinking of trying it but have never really gotten around to it.
I like it more than I thought I would. The smell was a little off-putting for me. I think it was the chai. The only other DT chai I have had is Vanilla Chai, and the smell was quite similar (I don’t like Vanilla Chai). Once it had brewed for a bit it smelled quite good, and the bitter edge had been taken off.
This kind of reminds me of a cookie. I think it’s just because it is kind of spicy, but also sweet. It has a nice balance. I can taste the chai flavor, but it is not overpowering. Oddly, I like the coconut in this. I’m not always a fan of coconut flavor in tea. The only thing that I find weird about this tea is that after taking a sip, it feels like my throat is coated in something (it sounds stupid, I know, but it feels like how bravissimo “coats” your throat). I don’t know that I enjoy this part of the tea, but I’m assuming it’s from the coconut. So basically I like the taste of the coconut when I drink the tea, but the after taste is a little awkward.
I probably won’t stock up on this tea but I am glad that I got to try it. I would drink it again, but I won’t be rushing to go buy a bunch any time soon!
