Tea like this makes one realize why one drinks tea in the first place. I have tried chai flavors in coffees and latte’s, but they pale in comparison to the flavor that is delivered by this tea. Tazo knows tea and does tea with a passion and to perfection.

I realized after awhile of sitting on this note that Tazo Chai has black pepper in it. When I let this tea sit for too long I can really taste it. Maybe I steeped it too long or the water was too hot. But, phew, it was strong after awhile.

I’m not a big fan at all of coffee named after food. Typically it is too bitter and over flavored and the coffee isn’t as noticeable. So, I was a little leery at trying a tea named after a food. Was I surprised. It is flavorful, aromatic, very satisfying. I am hooked. I still won’t drink coffee with the same name though :-)

I absolutely love this tea. I have only really been a tea drinker for about three months (a youngling, I know), so I need some help from some of the veterans on this site to help me know what is the best tea to drink. I love this new realm of taste that I have been exposed to and look forward to trying as many teas as I am capable of.

Chai is a bold place to start- I’m proud of you:) I love chais as long as they don’t have annis or fennel. My stomach is weird… black teas tend to upset my stomach, but chais don’t. Some suggestions for you:

*Stick w/ loose leaf when at all possible. If you’re on the go, you can buy empty tea bags (I love the ones at www.adagio.com) to fill w/ your favorite teas so you can have both eas and quality.

*Seek out unique chais. www.adagio.com has some great ones and stash has a white tea based chai.

*Seek out “weird” or “taboo” teas… white cucumber, pu erh, flavored oolongs, etc.

*Try tea blends like mine:

This is the first tea that I drank that got me hooked on tea. I bought it at a Starbucks, for more than I should have paid for it, and was instantly surprised. Great taste, good mixture of milk and sugar (though I prefer honey). I loved it. Although I still like a good cup of coffee (preferably Starbucks) I am a tea guy now!

Got this as a gift for my birthday. Hadn’t ever tried it before, and was very pleasantly surprised at the experience. I am having a hard time thinking about going back to mundane teas that I have had in the past. Great cup of tea.

Very flavorful with no bitter aftertaste. The caffeine is potent enough for a former coffee drinker. Great tea.

Bio

I have been a coffee drinker most of my life. Only recently have I turned to tea. I have to admit I didn’t realize the world I was missing. I still love coffee, but tea provides a whole new dimension for me. I look forward to reading what others have to say about their favorites.
