First of all, let me just say how much I adore coconut and how much I love the sweet fragrance of rose petals! Hence there had to be a coconut rose tea in the Chai Kai Tea Co collection. Together, coconut and rose is delicious, rejuvenating, tasty and super healthy!
Tree of Life
The coconut tree (Cocos nucifera), a ‘magical tree’ which originated in the South Pacific and a member of the family Arecaceae (palm family). Grown in many parts of the world including Southern Asia, commonly referred to as the ‘tree of life’. In fact, in Sanskrit, the coconut palm is known as kalpa vriksha – ‘tree which gives all that is necessary for living’. This is due to every part of this fruit (though often mistaken for a nut) being beneficial. This includes the water, milk, flesh, sugar and oil. Perhaps you are familiar with the coconut oil craze or the hydrating quality of coconut water? But how about coconut in a tea? Combined with the ancient healing powers of rose petals, let me introduce you to the elixir of life……I mean…. Coconut Rose loose leaf tea by Chai Kai Tea Co
