And of course, I Deb-ify it by creating a dessert chai for coconut lovers like myself and others alike: Coconut Cream Pie Chai! A little spice, a little sweetness, a little cream pie creaminess just waiting to be hit with some milk and honey. Curl up under a blanket with a good book and enjoy a cuppa hot chai with a dessert twist.

In a “pie” mode this weekend, last night for dinner I had a cornish pasty and an apple meringue pie. This morning when I looked over my sipdown themes from the discussion forum, I saw “pie flavored tea.” So here I am, more pie.

Preparation: Latte
Tasting Note: So I added a little amount of honey and oatmilk (oatly) to this tea. I am not an avid chai drinker but I wanted to try some different blends to see what spices I like which ones I am not so keen on. So with this blend the cardamom is the strongest flavor which is really nice. Cinnamom is more in the background here and the coconut provides a creamy sweetness that I can still slightly detect. Overall, I really like this blend it is simple and slightly sweet and warming. I think this could be a contender in a chai-off tournament for my cupboard.

Total side note, I wish Deb had her personal preferences in preparation on the package like she has on the website. (For example, sometimes she recommends having it as a latte or with milk and sugar or just straight.) It would be nice to have that point of use instead of having to pull up the website.

Flavors: Cardamom, Coconut, Cream, Spices

And I wish every company had their recommended steeping parameters on packaging, too! I have greens that say 175 and others that say 212 on the website but if it isn’t on the package I usually go with my default of 185 for green. Keemuns, etc. like 190 instead of 212 usually. I get really annoyed at having to stop and look things up just as I am ready to make my tea!

I have found I typically always prefer my own “default steeping parameters” over whatever is printed on packaging, and so I always ignore it. I find they always recommend water warmer than I’d use, way more leaf than I prefer, and steep times way longer than I can handle. Maybe everyone else likes bitter tea, but not me. If the cup is abysmal, then I may try with their directions later.

Ha I always make nice green teas at work because the hot water that comes out of the water cooler thing makes the perfect green tea. I wish I knew its temperature so I could use those parameters at home too!

I sipped this one down a while ago now. I remember liking it but wanting more out of the chai. I’d consider getting this one again on sale or if it was reformulated with more oomph

I got my recent small order from Deb today, and this was one of the free samples that she selected. I’ve actually been enjoying chai more lately, probably because of the season changing, so I was interested to see it. I’m not the biggest coconut fan, but I do enjoy it as a supporting flavor.

Overall though, this is a bit thin for me. I do enjoy the coconut combined with the cinnamon and cardamom, and it is a creamier coconut so it does remind me of coconut cream pie. But overall it’s a bit weak, and I know if I use more leaf, it’ll be too sweet because of the added sugar.

I would maybe consider ordering this if it didn’t have sugar in it.

No idea why tea blends contain added sugar, aside from making teas heavier and more costly.

I love this one as a stove-top latte! :) The toasted coconut in this is so yummy. I some times pick out the toasted coconut bits and eat them plain while waiting for my tea to boil, lol.

With this tea, I mostly taste delicious coconut, cardamon (which Deb uses generously!), and a slight bit of ginger. I taste little cinnamon in here, but that is okay, because this tea is lovely as is.

Following the advice VariaTEA gave when sending this sample and having it as a latte today! It’s something I don’t normally do, so it’s extra fun for a change. The coconut blends into the creaminess of the milk and almost disappears, but comes back out in the finish. The sip is filled with a nice mixture of warming spices that merge at the start of the finish with the coconut. Migraine meds have kicked in so I’m extra enjoying this cup and the feeling of relaxation. Today makes day 5 of migraines which is a new record for me! :( These DBD teas, especially the spiced ones, have a certain flavor profile or mix that I’m starting to associate with this brand. It’s almost like there is a little bit of ginseng mixed in, which I think I have mentioned in other DBD tasting notes. I’m quickly nearing the bottom of my cup and am wondering if I can get a second steeping out of this or if I’ll have to use the last of the sample to get another round. This cup was so soothing!

Chronic migraineur here, I know those feels. Mine has finally broken after two days (abortive meds failed). Hope you are feeling better soon!

I’ve never actually had coconut cream pie but it’s always been intriguing to me. However, I have had coconut milk and other coconut cream things and this chai is a nice take on that flavor. I had it as a latte today and while it doesn’t scream chai because of the spices, it makes for one good latte. I’m rethinking the “not getting more of this” part of my last note.

Coconut cream pie is divine. We once drove Calgary to Seattle in one day and our one stop was at the Chilliwack airport for their incredible coconut cream pie haha!
