I’ve used this mix before and enjoyed it with soy milk. Today I used the unsweetened chai concentrate with unsweetened cashew milk. I’m in love!!! The cashew milk is sooooo smooth and creamy. There are only 25 calories in 8 oz of the cashew milk and zero calories in the unsweetened chai so it becomes an excellent choice when I really want a luxury dessert. No guilt! Super easy. I just heated it up in the microwave oven.
Thanks to EmilyGee for sending me some of this! I’m fond of chai but can’t have much black tea, so herbal chais are always interesting. This one turns out to be rather meh. It’s just way too much clove, even with rice milk added. It’s drinkable but not something that I would seek out. Glad I got to try it though!
I bought this while down visiting friends in the states, and lived partially off of it for the next week. It amused me that it called itself herbal — while technically it is true that it has no TEA in it, herbal usually means no caffeine, and with both guayusa and mate…. yeah no.
Clear, it tastes a little herby, with the spices coming through. A little weak, but not unpleasantly such; you can still taste the tea, but there’s nothing very overpowering. It reminds me of a slightly weaker version of a similar tea from Zen Tea.
The herbal flavour comes out even more with milk and a bit of brown sugar; I think more sweetening wouldn’t be bad if having it like this, but all being told I think I like it better clear.
Ugh, I hate calling up my bosses and asking for letters of reference, especially on short notice. I wish finding a job was an easier process, especially for shy people.
Backlogging from months and months ago… I always kept forgetting to log this one. Perhaps that’s indicative of my experience with it. I was distinctly underwhelmed by it. It was my first and last honeybush. Usually, with chai, you have to worry about the flavors and spices being too strong, but that was decidedly not the case here.The base was bland as all getout, and there was no helping it with sweeteners or milk. It was basically like drinking hot water with a bit of cinnamon thrown in.
Not exactly thrilling. There are far better herbal chais out there.
I really like Oregon Chai. I found it in tea bag form while at my local super market. I have had chai tea made from their concentrate many times. I found the tea bag just as good as the concentrate flavor. I think Oregon Chai has a distinct taste for a chai, meaning, more spicy than sweet. I do usually add cream/sugar to this. If you ever get a chance, read the company history on Wiki about Oregon Chai, I found it to be very interesting.
Tastes sweet and medium spicy. Goes well with a little bit of sugar and low fat milk.
This tea is an excellent alternative to a traditionally prepared Chai. The recommended time is between 3-5 minutes as per the package, but I prefer it around 3 minutes to avoid the extra caffeine.
made as directed with 8oz water and a (generous) splash of milk. Added chocolate flavored marshmallows because I’m trying to get rid of them.
It’s ok, for a powder, I guess… it’s not my ideal chai because a) powdered mix = flat taste b) too much cinnamon and not enough vanilla. It was a free sample, and worth every penny. Will drink but won’t buy.
Since I’m in a hotel, I can’t prepare chai the traditional way (no stovetop). A friend suggested that I try this as an alternative.
It was okay, not spectacular (didn’t compare at all with making chai with actual tea leaves and spices!).
I had a migraine, so I “got” to taste it again an hour later. Now I can’t stand to look at it. I don’t want to rate it because of that. I’ll try again in a few days.
REALLY SWEET! But I can’t deny that I enjoyed it. If I didn’t know it packed a lot of calories, I would have had an immediate second cup. It was fast, simple, and fragrant (as a chai should be!). Still, I think it will probably be too sweet for some people, but I have a sweet tooth from years of drinking those awful flavored coffees from fast food chains. I will definitely want to keep this in my cupboard and try other products from Oregon Chai!
Okay so I Love Oregon Chai so much! So one day I decided since I have tried the Concentrate and Powdered Late Mix why not try the tea bags. At first I was expecting a lighter taste, one that wouldn’t be as flavorful as the Concentrate or the Mix but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it and it was excellent! Exactly like it sister full body and flavor and I actually like it more considering in the other two I could not control how much sugar was in the other two and sometime (like when going to bed) I didn’t really want a super sweet tea, so this is perfect!
Okay so I am a Chai Fanatic and this was my very first Chai tea, and let me tell you I think it is a great into into Chai if you are a) New to Chai b) New to tea in general because you were transioning from coffee. The reason why I say this is because it is more like a supper sweet Cinomminy milky drink that you get when you add water to it. So yes this is a drink that a person that is just starting may like more then the tea from the Bag. If the person ends up liking it is really easy to get curious and want to try other Chai, and Teas in General so for me I love this tea because it opened my knowledge of Chai~! The taste is pretty good too! Like I said on the Sweet side but you can deffinitly taste the chai it is really enjoyable when it is cold!
A review of Energía Herbal Chai by Oregon Chai

Tea Type/Varietal: Chai
Region: South America
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup / tea bag
Liquor Color: red
Leaf Characteristics: Tea bag smells strongly of the chai spices.
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 4 minutes
I take one tea bag and put in my cup and pour in the boiled water, leaving to steep for several minutes. The spices fill the air around me immediately, and it is so warm and inviting encouraging me to take the cup and sip the tea…which is hot, so blowing away some of the heat so that my nose is tease further with the heady scent of the tea.
Tea’s color is brightly red and the aroma is that of spices from India I imagine yet it is South American spices infused with Yerba Mate, Guayusa and cinnamon, clove, ginger and Cardamom I further imagine is what I am met with when inhaling and tasting of this tea. It is a cup of warmth with nothing more needed, well a cozy nook of a corner by the window to watch the light coating of snow and take delight with living in this part of the world where seasonal changes occur and are at times quite pleasant.
