drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
150 tasting notes

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.

My passion for tea started at a very young age, thanks to my grandmothers beautiful china tea cup collection. I use to brew Tetley’s or whatever version of Orange Pekoe she had in the cupboard and pick out my favourite tea cup to use. It wasn’t until I was in my late teens that I really started to develop a passion for it. My town had the Urban Tea Merchant and it was there I was exposed to high tea and the very fancy Mariage Freres brand. When they switched over to The O Dor, my girlfriend and I found salvation in going for a lovely cup of tea and decompress with some tea scones.

It has since become an obsession. I have a tea cupboard, filled with a very large variety of teas. I also use the Breville Tea Maker to make my tea. I favour black teas, with a close second being North African Mint Green Tea. Because I have the luxury of working from home, I get to enjoy a wonderful cup of tea every morning, and the journey resets daily.
