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.

This is quite possibly the best bagged Chai I’ve ever had! Rich and flavorful with lots of cardamom (just the way I like it!) and a nice hint of creamy coconut. It’s smooth enough to drink straight but also takes milk well. I foresee this one becoming a staple in my cupboard!

I approach all coconut teas with caution, and I have to say that this one was pretty good. I do like my chais bold, and this one was definitely milder than what I prefer. However, that also meant that the coconut wasn’t as strong, either, which for me is a good thing. This reminds me of Coco Chai Rooibos from DT, though this has a different base. All in all, I’m pleased with this sample, and I look forward to trying the rest.

Good with honey, sugar, cream, and or straight. To me, every ingredient highlights the other: the chai spices complement the coconut, and the coconut really brings out the malty, chocolate like body of the Assam. As with any Zhena’s, you need to go through the tin pretty quickly to get the fuller flavor. This tea is very sweet, and pretty strong, so it’s astringency can be overwhelming if accidentally over steeped. When brewed in around three minutes, it’s smoother.

A really nice, strong chai. I’m on my third infusion and just don’t taste the coconut, though – it seems the spice is overpowering it! I probably would have rated it higher if the coconut came through a bit more. Not sure if it’s just this batch or I’m just not picking up the coconut that other people can taste.

I picked up a tin of this at Whole Foods while visiting Minneapolis this weekend. We left around 8:pm and I arrived home in Fargo a little after midnight. The drive was cold. My apartment is cold. I am cold. So once I got a few things unloaded and put away I brewed a cup of this.

I wasn’t actually expecting much. I haven’t heard of Zhena’s, and generally I’m not a fan of bags in tins, but I wanted to buy a souvenir tea, and this looked like the best I saw on the shelf. This tea, however, is enjoyable. First of all, it’s warming, and not just because the temperature is hot. The spices are warming. It makes me feel cozy to hold the mug and sip this tea while waiting for the heat to come on. I won’t buy this one again, but i’ll enjoy it while it lasts.

I’m still tinkering with this tea but with my first cup, I was not impressed.

My first experience with Zhena’s Gypsy Tea Coconut Chai was disappointing, as I found the brew quite weak. Today I tried infusing a bag directly in almond-coconut milk. As evidence that this blend is truly tea deficient, the cup of almond-coconut milk remained nearly white through the infusion process. I added a second bag, and by dipping and squeezing the bags, eventually I achieved a beige-colored liquor.

The taste was much better, but it still seemed more like an almond-coconut milk drink than a chai tea beverage. This is definitely the way to prepare this tea, as far as as I’m concerned, but I doubt that I’ll buy any more once my final bag from the sampler tin is gone.

I bought several of the Zhena’s teas at a nearby World Market. I was disappointed and returned it. I got my full amount back. I think the tea was old… or it just wasn’t very good.


carol who: my impression is that this tea has been sitting on the grocery shelf for a long time. Despite the far-off expiration date, it does not have the same vibrancy as the fresh teas purchased directly from tea emporia…

Thank you, Suzi~
This is just my style
Cardamom & Cloves are my favorite chai spices and this is wonderful.
The coconut makes it feel thick and creamy.
I really love this with a big teaspoon of honey~
The honey really draws out the spices and enriches it so wonderfully ♡


I have found this one at Kroger.. in the healthy foods department, not the regular boxed tea area. It will save you on shipping. Glad you like it :)


Thank you!
Nice to know I can find something local…lol….


You got it! Thanks to MissB for sending me a sample.. She’s the reason tried them. I picked up a sample pack of their chai in the Noblesville HomeGoods store a few weeks ago. There are only 4 of each flavor in their sample packs or I would have given you a couple of those too.


I wish Kokomo had a HomeGoods store…closest place is Marion
Thanks again

I’m not finding this one to be as great today as the last time I tried it, but I’m thinking my taste buds must be off today because I’ve tried a few and gotten the same response with each one.

I went for trying this one as an iced latte today, and although it is sweet and creamy, thanks to my normal added raw sugar, the spices and coconut aren’t coming through like I would have liked. I think if I try it again, I will steep it a bit longer and maybe use less milk than I would for a hot latte.

I’ll leave the rating as it was since I seem to be having an off day.

For something coconutty, I actually don’t mind this. I’m having it clear… the coconut is actually adding a sweetness to the spices. I think I’d still prefer a more classic chai… but this really isn’t bad at all!
