Preparing the Coconut Chai is a pleasure unto itself.  Just opening the tin lid immediately brings a rich aroma of tea and coconut.  Then steeping fills the air with even more enticing scents.  It smells so delicious that it is hard to wait while it steeps!  The flavor of the tea is bold and flavorful, just what you’d expect from the rich aroma.  The coconut flavor is not overpowering in the least and lends itself for a nice smooth finish.  Together with the other spices and the black tea blend, this makes for a delightful cup, prefect for any season.

Another thing I love is that this tea is fair trade certified and  USDA certified organic!  Both of these things are important to me, so not only do I enjoy drinking this tea, but I feel good about it too!

Served: Milk & honey

This is one of my all time favorite teas. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. This tea smells amazing, tastes amazing, and is so easy to make because you can toss everything in the mug while still half asleep. There are teas that are picky — green tea can’t steep too long or it will get bitter — with this tea that is not the case! The coconut chai is amazingly forgiving. I love chai and this twist on the classic chai flavor with coconut is oh so tasty. The coconut flavor seems to make it taste even creamier. Since chai is traditionally a sweet drink with cream and sugar boiled right in the kettle I sweetened it up for my taste test. Yup, it is just as amazing as I remembered it to be. The black tea, chai spices, and coconut flavor are well blended so that no one of the three overpowers the others. This is a must try!
