From Celestial Seasonings

“It’s said that every family in India has its own chai recipe. You might call India Spice Chai the Celestial Seasonings family recipe. This authentic blend infuses rich and hearty Assam 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 to all the red tea descriptions

So I’m sitting here watching some cartoons on Netflix, and I decide to try this. I just bought it today. I was going to make four different cups, to try and find a way I like it. But only after one cup, I’ve decided that I will not buy this tea again. I’ll finish this box, and be done. It’s bitter, and not strong enough. I let it steep for about 5 and half minuets, the length of time I usually steep any tea. It does however have a wonderful aroma, and would taste a little better w/o the after taste, and little less cinnamon. Not very impressed, I’m sad to say.

I love Chai tea so on my last order of Keurig k-cups, I figured I’d add in a nice Chai for those mornings I’m a bit rushed. When I opened the shipping box, I felt a little twinge of guilt – tea in a Keurig. Oh boy.

I tried it right away and I was disappointed. Bitter and flavorless – how on earth do you do that to a Chai? HOW?

Now, I’ve got a whole box of k-cups I need to do something with, right? So the next one I tried, I mixed in a healthy dose of International Delights French Vanilla and crossed my fingers.

I’ve never, ever added International Delights to any tea prior to this experiment. I never thought I would. Seriously.

The tea was saved. Definitely drinkable, which also raised the rating of the tea significantly.

I will not be buying this tea again.

Certainly has spices and caffeine, does it take the way my mom’s does? No, but I also didn’t expect it to. I may have to try this one again with milk and sugar, made the way it traditionally is. The spices do have a nice kick though, which was better than I expected and it smells heavenly.

I loved this blend of spices. The cinnamon and richness was just want I was craving. I added a small pack of sugar and had a sweet treat.

Chai is probably my favorite tea. I have tried many and often disappointed. That said, I am highly surprised by the negative reviews on pre bagged tea. The flavors are strong and clear. Included are star anise and vanilla which I look for in Chai. I steep it for 5-7 minutes and usually drink it straight, occasionally with a splash of unsweetened almond milk. I don’t detect any bitter flavor either way. Very enjoyable.

Prep: Hot water from hot water spigot (probably 180-190* F or so)
It tastes like a cookie. a really weird cookie. Reminds me of Graham crackers. or some cheap ginger snap cookies that have a bit of cinnamon in them. It maybe the Chicory or the vanilla, but for now I am going to say it is the chicory that is throwing the flavor off.
I have a whole box that I received for Christmas. It may go up for swap soon.

I picked this up at the supermarket just to try it. I’ve been drinking it at work so far and have not been overly impressed. It’s ok, but I would rather spend my time drinking a better tea.

Seriously sad I wasted money on this after reading an oh so heavenly review on another blog.
Will stick to Stash double spice chai.

This was the first chai I tried. It was good for a beginner. The flavor is light and little bitter so milk and honey is a must. It smells better then it taste.

Boiling 8 min or more

Heavy on the cardamom, and too light on the other spices. I wanted more spicy ginger, but the cardamom overwhelmed.
