From Celestial Seasonings

It’s said that every family in India has its own chai recipe. You might call Decaf India Spice Chai the buzz-free version of our family’s recipe. This authentic blend infuses rich, decaffeinated black tea with lively spices like ginger, cloves and cardamom and a touch of smooth vanilla. Add warm milk and sugar or honey, and prepare to embark on a true chai experience.

— Charlie Baden, Celestial Seasonings Blendmaster Since 1975

This is okay for what it is. Not as flavorful as I’d like, but then I feel that way about lots of chais. The spice flavors are pleasant enough, if vague. The tea aspect leaves a lot to be desired, but hey, it’s decaf. Also cheap. I’ve found that a bit of soymilk makes a big difference with this one.

Does this taste like real Indian chai (the kind you make in a pot with water and milk)?

Okay, I know celestial seasonings teas are all about the artificial flavor and the chicory, but… There’s black tea in this? Or actual spices? I taste artificial ginger flavor and chicory.

This honestly isn’t that bad, I could probably get to enjoy it, but it basically tastes like a weaker version of their gingerbread spice. It tastes NOTHING like chai and DEFINITELY nothing like black tea.

I would not go to the trouble of buying this again – If I wanted this sort of flavor I would just brew a bag of the gingerbread spice for a short time in too much water. I actually like the gingerbread spice even though it tastes very artificial – this, however, is kind of wimpy and indecisive.

Note- I’m on my iPhone and I can’t get the steep and temp sliders to work. I used boiling water and steeped 6 minutes.

Had the non-decaf version. It was good, but not spicy and flavourful enough for me.

I paid $2 or so for this on sale. Great tea for the price. I like it at night since its decaf. Of course milk and sugar needed. I am very sensitive to the “natural flavorings” and can’t stand to taste that. I didn’t notice it all with this tea.
