This cup is enjoyed all over the world, but you can call it an Indian dessert chai. Vanilla and hazelnut are sweet and bold with the stimulating spices of chicory, carob, cinnamon, cardamon, ginger, stevia, clove and black pepper. This is what millionaires drink when they go to Bombay.
63 Tasting Notes
This is an extraordinary cup. A light to medium bodied green tea, ginger, cardamon, cinnamon, and almond. I like black chai with black pepper, but a chai without black pepper is really a sweet and savory drink. I served twelve ounces of this to my hard-working brother and he said “Mmm … you don’t say.”
This is one of the many “Thai Chais”. This cup has a light green base with lemongrass, ginger, coconut, and vanilla. In my opinion that is a beautiful combination. The flavor is pleasant and it makes you want to drink the whole pot in one sitting. This is a good tea for someone who frowns at tea in general. Like all Thai Chais this one sends you to Thailand in your mind.
This is a red tea that made me glow with pride for buying it. It’s a cranberry orange redbush cup. You can really taste the presented flavors well. Cranberry and orange makes me feel very happy. Harney and Sons use very good ingredients and their blenders are astute. Every time I’m at the book emporium I see the rack with this tea on it and I smile.
This is a wonderful and very romantic herbal. You could call this a Cuban herbal tea as lime and mint is featured in their national beverage. I enjoy this tea at midnight when caffeine isn’t an idea. Great for an all night party.
This green tea says to brew with boiling water. You never brew green tea with boiling water. I made it with 165 F water and it tasted horrible, like the scraps from chopped garden vegetables you throw in the composter. The bergamot in this tea tastes like spinach. I predict this will be re-introduced.
This red chai has a velvety body and a sweet, mild flavor. It’s spicy but not bold. A nice choice if you want to try a red chai. Iced, a very refined drink. Hats off to Yogi!

This could be called an 8-ingredient herbal chai. The flavor is very very bold. This recipe is thousands of years old and Indians say it cleanses the body. This cup is so spicy it will make you sweat a few drops. Invigorating with milk and honey and great if you mix one bag with a bag of Assam.

This clever cup is a cocoa, cayenne pepper, cardamon, and ginger herbal. Very very exotic. The blend of flavors is perfect and I feel excellent. This is spicy and it will get you ready to enjoy the evening. You can call this Mexican herbal tea, or Southwestern.
This tea bag red tea (rooibos herb) is very peach at a very fair price. On its own it’s an elegant cup and a nice cup in the early morning. I also mixed a bag of this with a bag of Ceylon and it turned out nicely.
Beautiful! This cup has a supreme concept. Black tea with raspberry, cherry, strawberry, and red currant. The black tea is medium bodied and the balance of fruits is perfect. My only complaint is that it’s always sold out.
I prefer to drink black chais neat (nothing added) and this one is smooth and flavorful. The balance of ingredients is perfect. Unlike other chais they don’t use too much black pepper. They use an Indian black tea and the flavor is wonderful. I really tasted the cardamon which is very nice. I imagine this cup is sublime made in a pan with milk.
A beautiful, elegant, and outstanding cup. This is a Ceylon Earl Grey with a sweet flavor and mellow body. I love Earl Greys that are “juicy”, and this is one is exceptional. The bergamot flavor is sublime. This tea calls to me throughout the day, and during all four seasons.
I thought this cup was tepid. A fine idea, but it doesn’t deliver. The flavors of cranberry and blood orange are dismally minimal. The black tea base didn’t do anything for me. Usually teas from The Republic of Tea vanish in a few days (in my house) but this sat. I’d be very eager and best pleased to try a loose-leaf version of this if they will make one. Maybe that will make a difference.
This is the best tea bag herbal I’ve ever found. The taste is of caramel and vanilla. They advertise cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves as the ingredients but there must be secret ingredients because this is outstanding. Profoundly exotic with a smile-inducing flavor and a powerful aroma. My mother smelled the aroma coming from the cup and said “ooooh what is that?”.
A very delicious and clever cup! This is a berry, ginger, cinnamon, and sweet piquanté pepper blend. This is a tea-bag and it’s very satisfying. This one is my favorite of Celestial Seasonings’ red teas.
This is a delicious redbush vanilla at a fair price. The velvety “red tea” is satisfying and the vanilla is inviting.
This cup is advertised as a nutty and chocolate mate, but I thought the flavor was too light. I brewed two bags at once to really taste it. That makes this cup expensive. I will try the loose-leaf version to see if it’s better.
This peppermint herbal (from Oregon) has an exquisite and sweet taste. Some peppermint teas taste like a stale candy cane, but this one is delicious and refreshing. The aroma is wonderful. Expensive but tasty.
The black tea is between light and medium bodied, with a fruity and floral taste. It is advertised as a fruity black tea with lemony bergamot, but I didn’t taste the lemony bergamot. I must point out I bought this on sale. It might have been “sitting there”. I will try this again and I’ll avoid “on sale” tea.
This cup tastes like cheap coffee wrung out of a moron’s dirty socks. It is the worst-tasting tea in the Celestial Seasonings catalog. They ought to improve this blend. Maybe it’s not possible to mix yerba mate with black tea, but who is to say.
Jasmine Jazz is one of the nicest cups I’ve ever had. The green base is medium bodied and the jasmine is beautiful. One of the most expensive in the Republic of Tea’s catalog, this tea has a deeply satisfying taste and a vibrant energy. My troubles vanish.
This is an extremely satisfying cup if you enjoy cinnamon. There are three types of cinnamon, with cloves and orange. The base is a delicious medium-bodied black tea. I received this as a gift and I’ll never forget that Christmas. Try this cheerfulness-inducer.
I love a very exotic cup and this one is unique. White tea has a silky smooth body that soothes after a long day. The ingredients produce a wild and savory flavor. Red pepper flakes give it a subtle fire. Ingredients: White tea, orange peel, almonds, pistachio nuts, coriander, and red pepper flakes. Contains nuts.
