This is another one of those “fruit punch” kind of teas, and I’m used to things like this tasting like glorified hot fruit water. The mate really makes a difference, though — it doesn’t detract from the taste of the fruit, just makes the liquor seem more flavorful and, oddly enough, thicker. The mint also helps the taste to be more interesting, although I would have liked there to be even more as it’s very subtle.

Definitely recommended for people who want a fruit tea that’s all fruit and no tea without feeling like they’re being skimped on taste.

Pretty disappointing — this has a lot of things in it and looks beautiful, but the taste is painfully reminiscent of a simple Celestial Seasonings zinger. Even a stronger green tea taste could make it a lot better, but alas, it’s all tutti-fruity with a slight cherry lean.

This is a chai for people who don’t like traditional chais, or at least that’s my impression. The blend of spices is quite different from what I’m used to in chai and much more pleasing to my taste buds than I expected, and I am quite fond of the type and amount of sugar that Teavana has placed in the sample packet (although I do understand why it is irritating to some people). Very nice; it’s times like this that I wish Teavana was cheaper, because I can easily see this becoming a comfort tea.

I’m glad somebody likes this version of chai. It’s got too much anise in it for me, which is pretty much one of my least favorite flavors. I guess that makes me more of a traditional chai person. :)

It’s funny, because I don’t usually like anise! Maybe I can just drink anything as long as it has enough sugar. :>

90s: Outstanding, I always want to have some of this on hand (though I really can’t afford having all of my favorite all of the time, haha)!
80s: Very good, there are some minor improvements I would make but overall I love it.
70s: Good, I might buy myself more of this someday but it’s not a priority.
60s: All right, I’m glad I got to give this a try but when it’s gone it’s gone.
50s: Not so great, I can drink this when I just really want tea.
40s and below: Various levels of dislike to hate. It just depends on how gross I think it is.
