Picking up a very synthetic flavor. The tea is almost sweetened. The flavoring totally overpowers the rooibos taste.

Firstly, this tea smells wonderful out of the tin. When brewed, I do not get a ton of chocolate flavor, mostly cinnamon and clove. (I think). The spice taste could be a little stronger, but it is a very drinkable tea.
I was disappointed w/ the chocolate in this as well. If you like cayenne in your chai, I’d suggest 52teas’ Mayan Chocolate Chai.
Thanks for the tip! I am trying out different chais, as my boyfriend is something of a chai hound.
This tea does get bitter rather quickly. It is sweet, with a very strong bitter note. Not to my liking.
Light and slightly earthy.
I tried this bagged. Everything I could ask for in a black tea. Rich without bitterness, somewhat full bodied.
This tea did taste pretty weak to me, even after five minutes in the tea pot.
Not a bad bagged tea. I did get the nutty, “twiggy” flavor of this tea.
I found this tea a little light on the rice flavor.
I find this tea to have a very synthetic taste to it. Or maybe it is just heavy on the flavoring oils…
For a bagged tea, this is a pretty nice cup. Steep it for a short period of time to halt the bitterness, maybe about 2-3mins. Has just the right amount of grapefruit flavor.
