I drink this before bed every night. A nice herbal mix that is calming and I love the minty taste. Usually nighttime teas have a very strong chamomile taste to them, but this one is really nice. I love the way the tea smells when it is steeping.

So this is a Keurig K CUP version of this tea. This is one of the first Chai teas that I ever had when I first started drinking tea (the bagged kind) and so I have a respect for this tea, and the tea company.

The thing is, it just doesn’t have a ton of spice or flavour to me, and it always tastes a little watered down? I don’t mind the tea, at all, and it’s not BAD, but it’s not my favourite Chai. I did mix it with an iced Chai drink that had soy in it, and so it gave it a milky, extra spicy taste. That made it 10x better.

Not a bad tea, but not my favourite.

Its an okay chai, nothing special. Even after steeping it for 10+ minutes it isn’t as strong/spicy as I would like. The flavors are definitely there but it’s just not enough

I went on a chai craze this winter, and purchased a variety of chai teas. This one can definitely hold it’s own. It’s not too heavy on any particular spice, but comes together in a nice blend. I will be repurchasing.

Pretty near perfect cuppa. Love the level of Bergamot flavoring in this Earl Grey. Might just be my favorite.

I recieved a box of various bagged teas for afternoons at work, and this is the first I’m trying. I’ve always been a fan of Twinnings, but I’ve never had anything besides their black and green bagged teas.

The smell reminds me of my favorite nutty oolong, and the color is a nice light brown after steeping. It’s a lot more bitter than I expected, and it’s really not comparable to how loose oolong tastes. Without the weird aftertaste I think it’s a pretty enjoyable tea, though I don’t know if I would go out of my way for it.

As far as chai goes, this is okay, it’s reasonable and comforting to drink on a cold day, but nothing to write home about. I’d recommend it to someone who doesn’t like excess cinnamon in their chai, but I probably won’t buy another box of it. It tastes as good with a dash of soy and without.

Hmm. This is both calming and refreshing. The chamomile and mint are well balanced, with a touch of lemon in the background. Just the right amount of mint lingers after the sip – energizing but not brisk. This would make a good breath-freshening afternoon tea if you don’t want any caffeine.

This tastes very similar to the generic oolong I got from Capital Teas, which I found weak and flat in flavor. Which probably means Twining’s has great quality tea for bagged tea, or Capital Teas sourced poorly for that oolong. I love oolong, but don’t love this tea. It’s weak tasting, and does not have any subtly to the flavor at all. It’s pretty decent for a bagged oolong, I guess, and it’s definitely better than other bagged oolongs I’ve tried. But with oolong, it’s loose for me all the way.

I didn’t really enjoy the smell this time, but it has a nice feel in the mouth and I liked the finish.

Smell is pleasant, the taste isn’t strong but it is soothing.

I don’t think anyone will question my choosing this tea this morning. I made pumpkin apple muffins for breakfast. They were just screaming at me to have chai, and this one was accessible and delicious. :) Warm, spicy, and just perfect with the muffins. Love!

My favorite teas are black teas, but this is a pleasant tea when you wanna mix things up. This is the second rooibos I’ve ever had and it wasn’t dissapointing for me. I prefer this one in the afternoon than any other time of day.
