Coconut Chai Tea in a Red Mug

I bought this red mug as a soup or chili mug because it came with a vented lid. This helps keep the microwave clean. Sometimes I use it for tea because it holds 14 ounces. And sometimes, I NEED 14 ounces of a delicious, non-caloric beverage.

Day 18 (January 28)

Day 26. Coconut Chai

Coconut Chai by Zhena’s Gypsy Tea: Ceylon & Assum Tea, blended with Cinnamon, Ginger, and Island Coconut

I first tried this hot and plain.

  • The smell was great. – I LIKE coconut.
  • I really like the tin. Wouldn’t it be fun to repurpose the tin and give it away with cookies inside?
  • And I like round tea bags. I don’t know why; I just do.
  • But the taste was “Meh” – not impressive.
  • So I put in some almond milk. I threw THAT cup away.
  • I then tried it with regular milk. It was okay, but it masked the taste of the coconut too much.
  • I wonder how it would taste with a splash of coconut milk? I didn’t have any, so I didn’t try it that way.
  • My daughter LIKED this tea, so I will give the rest to her.

Your Turn . . . Do you like this tea? . . .  Can you recommend a coconut flavoured tea?
