Tea: Coco Chai Rooibos

20 Oct

I’m going to take a brief pause in sharing my photos from my summer trip to Finland, and the meals and treats my companion and I enjoyed while abroad, to bring you a few posts about teas you might like to try as the weather becomes cooler this fall.

Coco Chai Rooibos is a caffiene-free spice-based chai which features cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, and pink peppercorns. The “coco” part of this tea isn’t chocolate (cocoa) but instead coconut, and the tea also has artificial and natural flavouring. This is another tea from David’s Tea, and they recommend it ‘straight up’ or made in the traditional chai style infused in hot milk for a delicious chai latte.

I made it up in my Teavana Perfect Tea Maker, and it steeped up strong and spicy, with just a hint of the nutty flavour offered by the coconut. The peppery taste was also pretty dominant in the scent and flavour of this tea – I mellowed it out with warm milk, though I’ll definitely try the warm milk infusion when I get the chance!
