This chai took me by surprise because the name of it suggests to me that maybe it’s a bit on the tame side when it comes to chai, but it’s got a spicy kick! The sweet, creamy notes of the coconut do soften the flavors a tad, and they give the overall experience a sort of “latte” type flavor without adding dairy which I appreciate.
Lively spice notes of ginger and pepper. I like how the heat of the ginger and pepper seem to bring out the spicier notes of the cinnamon, giving it more of a hot cinnamon flavor rather than a sweet cinnamon note.
I like the strong spices in this. I like that rooibos – which isn’t a favorite taste of mine – isn’t a focus of this blend and the spices really shape the direction of the tisane. The coconut adds just the right sweet, creamy flavor. Nice.
