If you are expecting a spicy chai you will be disappointed. I have had this tea in the past however and find it a nice smooth flavored black tea.

I also enjoy this tea with a bit of honey and milk as it’s flavor is strong enough to stand up to that without being lost.

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
