drank Rooibos Chai by Teavana
178 tasting notes

I’ve not had all that good experiences with Teavana’s rooibos blends in the past, but I decided to give this one a tentative go…

In the cup it smells pretty nicely of cinnamon spice and just the barest hint of that cardboard rooibos note that can linger in the lower-quality ones…but the flavour doesn’t quite match up with the scent.

I mean, it smells like it should be really good but the taste is just a flat and rather mediocre cinnamon without the depth and heat that I expect from a quality chai.

Not sure what I’ll be doing with this one, but I’m not all that excited to drink it again…

i feel you on this one, i have their Dosha Chai Rooibos which is a complete and utter disappointment. yack.

They had a chai that I liked a long time ago…maybe it was a honeybush one (or my tastebuds have a faulty memory)?

I’ve been trying to find it for ages, but I keep getting cupfuls of drek. Meh.

Overstressed aspiring model…tea is what gets me moving in the mornings, calms me down at night and fills all the moments in-between.

I’m still in the everything is delicious and I want to drink it all phase of my exploration, so I’m open to swaps, TTBs and trying new things. (with the exception of jasmine…that icky stuff tastes like soap)

My cupboard is things I have and am willing to swap (either I didn’t like them that much or I have a lot of them) and my wishlist is mostly things I’ve tasted and want to buy or swap for in the future.
