I really enjoy this tea. It is definitely spicy – perhaps the spiciest I’ve ever had. It’s not something I crave every day, but it doesn’t disappoint when I’m in the mood for something spicy and sweet. No sweetener required. I would recommend steeping for 4 minutes at most – some of the spices overpower the more delicate flavors if you steep for too long.
My soon-to-be-sister-in-law gave us a box of this at New Years, when I was coming down with a nasty cold. Her family drinks it when they’re sick, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. I’ve never been a big fan of rooibos, so I was a bit hesitant, but I finally caved and made myself a cup.
It’s amazingly fragrant and sweet enough that I don’t need to add any kind of sweetener. I was very surprised that I love the flavor; it’s heavy on the cinnamon, which is great. It makes my throat tingle a little as it goes down. If you like spicy teas, this is a great one.
I made a cup of this tea hot, and the spices were just overwhelming — I’m talking a punch to the throat here. Then I got distracted by the book I was reading and let my tea get cold. At first, I was annoyed that I’d have to heat it back up, but I took a sip of it cool and it was a lot calmer. This definitely has potential as an iced tea. When the weather gets warmer, I’ll give it another shot.
I am tired but wound up. Such a horrible state to be in. I am always looking for something to drink in the evenings and I have to say this is one I will be turning to often. This is incredibly sweet with a nice amount of cinnamon that doesn’t knock your socks off. Great for a late night treat.
Tastes pretty much like the cinnamon orange version. I looked at the ingredients and it looks like the same stuff just in different proportions. Anyway, this tea is great. If anything, it might be a little less sweet than the cinnamon orange one, but still plenty sweet. And I bought a nice value pack from costco, it was an amazing deal!
And to note, three steeps from one bag in my oversized cup. A little watery on the last one but not bad.
umm. well. nope. Don’t like it.
The vanilla isn’t a nice add on flavor as it is absolutely needed to get rid of some of a weird spicy flavor that is in this tea. It almost tastes like they shook powdered artificial spices into the tea bag because it has a weird grittiness to it.
And everything about it tastes a little off. Not like it went bad. But that it is all actually artificial and they are trying to cover it up.
It’s not working because this doesn’t taste like natural chai ingredients. Maybe they put some kinda preservative on to natural ingredients.
Anyways… you get my point. I don’t like it.
