I’m really new to loose leaf tea so i bought the chai sampler from Adagio. This was the first Chai i have tried and instantly fell in love. The smell when I first open the bag was amazing, the smell of the spices filled the whole kitchen.

I followed the instructions for steeping that were printed on the bag it came in. The minute it hit my tongue I was in love. I didn’t get a lot of the coconut taste but maybe that’s because I got unlucky while scooping. The blend of the spices and tea was fantastic.

If I didn’t have a ton of other tea laying around I would have already ordered a massive bag of this. Hopefully this isn’t too terrible first review as I getting used to how amazing loose leaf tea is.

I am not the world’s biggest chai fan, but I have had a memorable restaurant-chai experience that I’ve longed to recreate at home. Before I knew anything about loose leaf teas I was doing the “dusty teabag” + milk thing and thinking that was as good as it could get. Now that I’ve joined the realm of loose leaf tea drinkers, I’m excited about the higher quality chais I can try- maybe I’ll even like the stuff better.

This chai has a flavor profile I really like. I’m not into the clove/cinnamon/nutmeg and “heavy” flavors that masala-type chais have. This spicy combo leans too much into cinnamon for me, but is still set off nicely by the coconut, ginger, lemongrass and cardamon. The lemongrass and coconut are my favorites (I must say that lemongrass seems an odd pairing with cinnamon, but I can live with it).

After being hit full force by the cinnamon, I detected the lemongrass. Coconut comes in somewhere in the background. Yum! Oh- and you can forget the photograph showing a large slice of coconut. The coconut is of the grated variety (if you want large coconut pieces, try the Caribbean Calypso by Teavana).

I added unsweetened vanilla almond milk (why not?) post-steeping and found that while I liked the flavor, it cut the sweetness a little too much. I put in a few pebbles of rock sugar and – hey, now! Now I’m really enjoying this!

I got down to the bottom of the cup, and you know those little floaters that alway escape the infuser? I almost wanted to chew them, because they made that last bit of tea extra-delicious! Maybe they could be added into some moist, delicious muffin batter.

Anyhoo, I look forward to my next Thai Chai with vanilla almond milk & rock sugar (or honey) experience.

Yes: a lovely autumn/winter morning drink. But I’m honestly not even sure what I’m doing reviewing it on Steepster, a tea site.

I prepared this on the stove, boiling the chai in 1 part water : 1 part whole milk for 5 minutes and adding a fairly large amount of sugar at the end. It’s really sort of nonsensical to compare the result to regular brewed tea: the spices (coconut! lemongrass! cinnamon! etc!), milk, and sugar actually dominate the black tea itself. I can certainly feel the caffeine, though.

If you like the spice mixture, you’ll like the drink. As I said above, though, it’s almost unreasonable to call it a “tea,” even though of course it really is one.

This is a good chai spice tea. I feel like it could be a little more spicy. This falls a little in the middle of the road for me. I love the taste of the spices and the yummy goodness that awaits me at the bottom of my cup. I could just use a little more.

With cream and a touch of sugar. A wonderful blend of flavors—spicy, herbal, earthy, tropical. Just good.

Ohh, another tin from my Adagio sampler that I am very happy with. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but when I opened the tin and smelled that wave of coconut and spiciness, I started to get excited. I only used about a scoop and a half of tea instead of the recommended two. When I poured the water over the tea, the coconut aroma intensified, but I was a little disappointed when I first tasted it, because there wasn’t much of a coconut taste. Then I added a little milk and sugar, and… alchemy! There’s the coconut, surrounded by the spices, with that little hint of lemongrass. This tea is absolutely perfect for this morning, a just-about-cold morning that’s going to lead into a beautiful early spring day. I’m very pleased with this tea.

this is a great chai too. the spices here are perhaps most pronounced, moreso even than malasa chai due to the fact that the malasa chai has a pretty bold black tea as a base. still, I prefer the Bengal Green Chai from Adagio, but this comes a close second. with a tablespoon of Half and Half and a small amount of honey, this chai tastes active, lively, and earthy. the coconut and lemongrass blend extremely well, i was surprised.

ok well first the leaves smell like lemon and coconut…i dont like coconut. when its brewed it is a very pretty light amber color…but mine was a bit foggy…may have been my lighting in the kitchen though, it is a junky light i had on. the tea smells like the leaves…still dont like it. so i tasted it plain….still dont like it. i added sugar and it’s now drinkable when its in my mouth i cant taste the coconut so it isnt so bad i can first taste the lemony chai which isnt so bad, but the after flavor left in my mouth is coconut…i will be finishing this cup and hopefully sending this one out to another person who enjoys this.

This is seriously delicious. I’m finding that the Adagio teas are either a hit or miss, and this is a hit for sure. Slightly spicy on the tongue.. REALLY love the lemongrass and ginger notes. I have only sipped this straight so far, but I like the idea of maybe adding a little coconut milk. Will have to try that next time.
