I used to LOVE this stuff! I saw it a while ago while shopping and picked up a carton, just opening it today. What I remember was the intense mix of spices and the warming kick of pepper. What I got today was way more toned down in the spice department than what I recall and WAY sweeter too. Like sickly sweet. I had to add a ton of milk to cut the sweet which also cuts the spice. It is funny how our tastes evolve and change! I may be dumping the rest of the carton and searching for a good spicy chai alternative.
I have this bad habit of letting my milk spoil… It’s a waste of food and money, so it needs to stop. I got this to motivate me to drink my milk.
It has the PERFECT amount of sweetness— I can still taste the black tea base, which is nice and mild. Lots of cinnamon and cloves, not much nutmeg, just a hint of ginger, bit of a perfumey quality in the aftertaste.
Yum yum yum! Problem solved.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger, Nutmeg, Perfume, Spices, Sweet
Sample from Nichole. Thank you!
This is a tasty herbal chai. It’s heavy on the ginger, which I like, but may not be to everyone’s taste. I wouldn’t call it “peaceful” as the company does, I don’t think ginger is a particularly peaceful spice, but it is tasty.
Flavors: Ginger, Spices
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!
