Although I enjoy the spice blend Stash uses in this tea (the right balance of cinnamon, cardamom, and clover with none overwhelming the others), I thought the black tea base was too weak to support so much spice. I might try brewing this along with a bag of English Breakfast to amp up the base.

This is a nice chai tea. I found that the cinnamon smell and taste stood out more than with most chai teas.

Meh. It’s a decent chai. The tea part is kind of weak, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Not sure I would invest in an entire box of it, though. :)

I’ve tried this chai made a few ways, straight (meh), with a dash of cream & a tsp of sweetener (not bad), steeped in milk (ok), and today I made it with frothed milk & two teaspoons of Splenda (next time I’ll cut it back to just one).

I prefer it the way it was prepared tonight, but it’s still a very weak chai. I let it steep for ten minutes in the milk, and wish I would have used two bags instead of one. It’s not bad, I am enjoying it, but the only flavors that I’m getting off of it are cinnamon & light clove. Doubt I would buy this again, and I’ll probably get some loose leaf chai once I run out of this.

The taste of cloves overwhelmed all the other spices, as well as the tea itself. Good for waking me up and with something sweet and rich like cake. Not for relaxing and blander food. Overall good everyday tea.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger

Great for a work tea, especially if you add a little bit of sugar. I’m a little disappointed that I can’t tell what spices are in this though. My immediate reaction is “cinnamon!” but I have the sneaking suspicion it might just as well be cardamom. A pleasant tea to sip on absentmindedly.

Tea 5/6 from the fruit tea sampler I got off of amazon. I bought these teas with the intention of making pitchers of iced tea. To try this tea, I put 1 bag of of this tea in 8 oz of cold water and put it in the fridge to steep for about 1.5-2 hours (cold brew).

When it comes to the taste of this tea, it is very light (not surprising since the main ingredients are floral) with a mild tart taste from the hibiscus. As for any taste of mangoes? None whatsoever. I drink a smoothie every morning and often I make them with mangoes. I have also had Mango Fruit Punch tea from DAVIDs. Those things tasted like mangoes, this- not even close. I can’t comment on the passion fruit because I don’t recall ever eating that fruit, but this tea to me is just mildly tart and nothing else. Very disappointing since this is one of the teas I was most excited for. I will be mixing this tea with others to use up but otherwise I will not repurchase at all.

I haven’t had the final tea from the collection (Meyer Lemon) but reading the ingredients it is almost the same as the Lemon Ginger tea, and I have a good idea of what that will taste like. With that being said, I can say with confidence this is the worst tea out of the bunch.

Tea 1/6 from the fruit tea sampler I got off of amazon. 6 boxes of tea for $26 or a bit over $4 per box. Not too shabby! I bought these teas with the intention of making pitchers of iced tea.

I decided to cold brew this one. I put 4 tea bags in my 2L pitcher and let it sit in the fridge overnight (about 12 hours?). When I took a sample this morning I was underwhelmed. There isn’t much tartness from the hibiscus (a good thing), but overall it’s pretty weak and the main taste is a slightly bitter aftertaste (maybe from the chicory root? Acai berry?- can’t say I’ve had either or those things before so I’m not really sure).

I’m going to try hot brewing the tea then leaving it to cool in the fridge, or maybe use 2 tea bags of this tea plus 2 of another kind to make it better. Otherwise I will not be repurchasing this tea (which is disappointing because I had high hopes for these Stash teas). Hopefully the other kinds in my collection will be better. So far I have tried 2/5 of the celestial seasonings teas and they were both amazing, which was very surprising as I had low expectations for that brand.

Celestial Seasonings is a good brand

I’m new to the world of chai, as I usually stick with herbals or green teas, but I’m trying to branch out-broaden my horizons if you will. I grabbed this one because it looked pretty and steeped a quick cup as soon as I got home. I added a splash of almond milk and a little bit of sugar and it was exactly what I wanted it to be. It has definitely encourage me to try some other brands and spice variations of chai.

I’m not going to lie. I mostly wanted it because of the mango on the label. I thought i was going to be a more higher volume of flavour, but maybe i added way to much water, Or not enough tea bags for me cup. I love the smell. I guess i was just too weak for me.

Not a very exciting chai. No real problems with it but it is more likely I will use it as tea when I’m not taking the time to savor it.

I found the cinnamon to be overpowering. Even the smell of the tea brewing from a couple feet away gave me a headache, and I love a chai with well-balanced spices.

Brewed 1 bag with 12oz water, then added a generous drop of fat free milk.

One of my favorites. I love the cinnamon candy taste. I do not detect much tea flavour, more just cinnamon, but the flavour is great anyway. I add frothed milk to the top for a special treat.

It’s downright freezing in Florida today – a whopping 50-something degrees which is strange for my phallic-shaped state. Which means it’s time to try those wintery teas that I’ve been saving just for a cold front. I don’t know much about the Stash brand except that I think they sell it at Target and I think I remember it being pricier than your average grocery store brand. All that indefiniteness aside, it wasn’t as strong as other chai’s I’ve had. It also seemed to have more cinnamon than most other chai’s, too. It was still very pleasant, but I think I just might prefer my Twinings Pumpkin Spice Chai. You’d think Twinings paid me by the way I always go on about how much I love them. The fact that I go on and on about them this much for free should say something about how much I love them. Or that I just like to give it away for free – that didn’t COME OFF RIGHT! Anywho…. back to my cuppa.

Was not expecting to like this, purely by the smell (so much cinnamon!) alone. Too much cinnamon is a strike for me, but this one worked well. I take it with a little soy milk, and is even good warm.

This is quite spicy, so I like it. However, the ratio of black tea to spice is incredibly low, so I found this has almost no body if brewed in water. I like to brew it in apple juice or milk for a stronger flavor.
