One thing that made this Chai tea different from a lot of other chai’s I have had is the subtle flavor of it. A lot of the time chai teas have very strong and robust flavors; due to the black tea base and heavy use of strong spices like. However, this one being a mate’ and green rooibos gave a lighter and smoother flavor. The spices used add a nice flavor and zing, and the citrus flavors added a nice tangy flavor without being overpowering. I will say though that i don’t taste the pineapple and almonds much though.

Overall I would say that if you are looking for a light citrus chai tea, this is the one for you…
