I wasn’t impressed by this one. I’m not a fan of vanilla in the first place, but I was hoping it would be more of a subtle flavor. As a chai, I thought it was weak, and the vanilla was too strong for my tastes.

“Mmmm. This is my ideal dessert tea. Plain, although I keep meaning to try it with milk. Sipping and reading Watchmen. Checked it out of my college’s library. This is one thick graphic novel.” Read full tasting note
Chai is a delightful blend of tea and exotic spices. It is often brewed with milk, which gives Chai a wonderful, creamy characteristic. In Bigelow Vanilla Chai we have added the flavor of vanilla, offering you a whole new dimension in Chai.

Aromatic and spicy, this is my favourite bagged chai. I’m a sucker for the smell of spicy vanilla (I have a perfume that smells almost exactly like this tea), so I’m having a hard time dragging my nose away from the mug long enough to write this. It’s fantastic on its own, but even better with a bit of milk (soy, in my case) small pinch of sugar. Far too rich to a daytime tea for me, it’s my default tea on cold nights.
I love Bigelows Vanilla Chai! I discovered it about a year ago while visiting Houston and now I buy it whenever I can. Definitely a favorite for people who like sweet teas. The smell of it while steeping is pretty amazing too. I wish I could find some incense that smelled this way, I’d totally load up! :)
I came across this quite by luck. I normally stay away from bagged tea unless that’s my only choice for tea. I saw this in my local airport while waiting for my fight and really wanted tea. I got a cup of hot water from the flight attendent and steeped it for 5 min. No milk (I just didn’t want to make a mess in flight), no sweetener. It was really good! I won’t buy it otherwise, but I will definitely look for it next time I’m in an airport and want chai.
