drank Coco Chai Rooibos by Earth Teaze
1497 tasting notes

I soooo wanted to love this, even though the whole tin was only $4.99, and that this company is almost non-existent on Steepster. A coco chai that will kick my butt as well as the viral bacterial into oblivion. Yep, a tall order.

Unfortunately, the smell of this out of the pouch (it was vacuum sealed in a pouch, inside the tin), was just meh. Some chai-like spices, but mostly rooibos. There were huge pieces of almonds and peppercorns though, so I had hope still. Steeped, just rooibos with a hint of cardamom.

My first sip, I was taken aback. Am I drinking a chai? This tastes like just plain rooibos. Still did for a few minutes, and now half the mug finished, it’s only now getting a bit of a spicey, peppery-like quality. Very drying, and a bit tickling to the throat.

The instructions were a bit odd; boiling water, 3-4 minutes, which seemed low for a rooibos, so maybe I’ll try a longer steep next time to see if perhaps things change.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
