Hm, not too crazy about this one.
To me, it just kinda tastes like a glass of hot, old oranges.

To be fair, my roommate seemed to like it – and she’s a good deal more fond of fruity/herbal teas than I am. So, ymmv.

Pretty refreshing tea, you defiantly get a burst of flavor with each sip!

I brewed this tea in my Keurig with 10 oz water selection. I made this with honey and then added some agave, because it tasted pretty bad. This tea does not taste like chai, pumpkin, or pumpkin spices. It just has this weird spice, and not the way that tastes good in tea. It’s a biting spice that quickly shows up and then fades to a bland black tea taste. Not going to get this again. I may try with steamed milk when I try it again.

I really enjoy this Tea it has a very nice orange taste with a very slight cinnamon in the background. This is a tea that is light on taste but great on flavor. Great for people who love a semi sweet taste but not something overpowering.

I don’t love this. It tastes kind of artificial and tart. I’m sure someone could love this, especially someone who likes fruity teas. I am not that person. It’s not bad for a bagged tea, but it’s not to my taste.

I picked up a box of this while on vacation a couple of weeks ago, and am just now getting around to trying it. I think it’s gross. It’s bland, and has a weird medicinal aftertaste from the Rooibos. Celestial Seasoning’s Mandarin Orange Spice has a much better flavor. I’ll stick with that in the future.

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.
