This tea is good for what it is – cheap, bagged black tea with added caffeine (mate, I believe). It created to provide energy and not necessarily to be delicious; however, it is drinkable (unlike the India Spice Chai I’ve tried from CS, which is supposed to be tasty—bleargh). I prefer this to coffee when I have to stay awake for an all-nighter. However, this isn’t the kind of tea you make just to relax and enjoy. This tea requires sugar and is good with or without milk. I wouldn’t mistake this for chai, but the flavor profile is similar. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued by Celestial Seasonings.
