I was desperate and lonely. I was weak. It was bad.
I tried it as first with out any milk, and decided it needed it. Didn’t help. The smell of is milky and spicy/sweet and absolutely yum. The taste was the exact opposite. Its weak with a hint of spice and then bitter. A boon is that the spice is in fact well rounded and not just cinnamon, but I had to search for it.
Overall, unpleasant, but I could deal.

In one word- Disgusting.

I simply can not fathom how awful this tea is. Something went horribly wrong here. I don’t even know where to start, oh the fact that it tastes like drinking a cardboard box? It tastes artificial and weak even after literally leaving the tea bag in for hours.

If you think mud is an exotic flavor, you’re going to love this. Otherwise, you might want to think twice. This tea smelled wonderful while brewing, but in the cup the taste is muted and muddled. There is some kind of spice there—I know because 1) it says so on the package and 2) I can feel the bite of something on my tongue, but I can’t place what the spice is and it’s aroma is barely discernible during drinking. It’s like a mouthful of flat, flavorless… I don’t know what. It was unbearable without sugar, and it didn’t improve with it. I didn’t add milk because I didn’t want to waste milk. Take a pass on this one.

This is just a weak spiced black tea. Very weak. I didn’t approve.

This is one tea you may want to leave steeping in your cup as you’re drinking it. I usually do that, putting too much creamer in it on purpose so it will balance out in the end. I just started doing it because it seemed like my usual steeping time was never long enough. But then I’m one that likes chai on the strong side.

We went to a nice French restaurant on our honeymoon, and I saw this one in the basket. It went well with the chicken curry I had, and I thought the flavor had a nice balance. It’s been about a week since we went, so I can’t completely recall the flavor. The smell of the teabag has a predominance of cinnamon and clove. Is clove in chai, or am I actually smelling cardamom?
Sidetrack: I tried cardamom gelato a couple weeks ago, and it was amazing! Any chai lover will adore it.

This tea is rather strong by itself, mixed with several bags of Lipton Black Tea and iced. I rather like it like this…

I grabbed a box of this on complete accident when I was at the store. I was not a huge fan of this tea but in a pinch I would drink it. I’m not sure if it was too strong or too weak but overall I won’t be grabbing this again anytime soon.

The good news, smells slightly of hazelnuts and cloves dry and quite lovely while brewing. The bad news, the flavor is nice but very weak. It was difficult to identify any distinct spices. Not good, not bad. Bland. I should add that I like a very strong chai.

I love this tea. It’s semi-weak so I usually steep it for awhile or steep it while the water is microwaving. It is pretty good either way you have it, iced or hot.
