Tea Gallerie Set of 2 Teas Sponsor Spotlight Review

Well, here we are again with my favorite tea company and 2 more of their teas to tell you about. I hope by spreading them out the way that I have, it gives more people a chance to get to know them and try them. They are a wonderful mix of new teas and the old great stand buys that everyone is familiar with. Tonight we will go over Tropical Passionfruit and Coconut Chai by Tea Gallerie.

I am actually drinking the Coconut Chai while I type so that it is fresh in my mind. I love coconut so this is really a no brainer for me and it's a chai tasting tea. If you love coconut, then this tea is going to be one of your favorites! Anyone who loves a good chai tea is going to love this one also. If your not a coconut fan or even a chai fan, then no this won't be the one for you. But, that is okay, because we all have different tastes. It would be awful if we all liked and ate the same things. It would get pretty boring really quick. So, I am hoping you are up for a change and a challenge. Just try it and see what you think.

These are the flavors that are in the Coconut Chai:  Black tea, ginger root, cinnamon, shredded coconut, ginger, coconut and vanilla flavor.  What do you think?  Would you drink this? I hope so because it really is good.  I don't like my chai's strong because of my stomach issues so I don't let it seep very long. Cut it down by about a minute or so and it will be light & airy and not so heavy. That is how I make all my chai teas. The longer it seeps the richer and bolder it will get.

If you love tropical fruits like the ones that are in fruit salads, then you are going to adore this next tea, Tropical Passionfruit! It has flavors of pineapple, mango and papaya offering a sweet and refreshing take on a green tea.  I love mangos and papaya so it was a no brainer for me. Not too crazy about pineapple, but the mango and papaya are more dominate to me, anyways so that was okay. If you like it just a tad less fruity, then don't seep as long. The longer you let any tea seep, the stronger the taste will be. Plus, whichever flavor is more dominate will overtake the others and you will basically have a one flavor tea instead of 3 or 4 mixed.
I hope by showing you the pictures of what the teas look like help you visualize what they might taste like with my colorful details on the tastes. I try to hit it spot on as much as I can but I also understand that we all like different flavors. This is a very nice light green tea with alot of fruity flavors added to make one heck of a great green tea!
