Now that some rainy weather has set in, I’m pretty much in fall mode and gearing for the nice cold nights by the fire… (did I mention I am a fall girl??)
Cozied up with a pot of this. This was graciously donated to me from someone else. They were mislead by the name and thought coco meant chocolate, but really it’s coconut. I wish it was a bit more spicy.
When you smell this, you get the sweet coconut smell right off the hop. It then blends with the other spices like the cardamom. Nothing else really sticks out right away.
When it’s brewed, it’s a light rooibus, even when brewed for a longer period of time. Immediately you smell the coconut (like the candied coconut you can buy at Costco.) Again, you don’t really smell the other notes, they kind of blend in.
I do like the taste of it, but I wish it was more spicy. I like spicy chai. I will echo that it is a good herbal chai blend though, for those days or nights where you don’t feel like a black tea pick me up. It’s still pretty cozy none the less. I probably won’t re-order it when this little bag runs out. I don’t like that it has artificial flavouring… trying to stick with teas that are naturally flavoured.
Flavors: Cardamom, Coconut
