Brewed by the cup, with plenty of milk and sugar.
Has an interesting gingerbread flavor – a nice change from regular chai.
Distinctly weaker than other Stash chais. Come on, the holidays is a time for MORE of an explosion of flavor, not less! That said, I’m not sure how to do a holiday chai since regular chai has so many typically “holiday” flavors (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.) I’ll stick with Stash’s Double Spice Chai.
Not bad… Nice color, fast brew time with strong, individually wrapped bags. Its okay, when you’re really in the mood for that set of flavors, but I think the rum flavoring enhanced the bitter tea flavor, and it overpowered the chai spices. The addition an extra pinch of chai spice fixed the problem for me, but that might be a hassle in the future when trying to use tea bags for convenience purposes.
My favorite chai in Stash’s chai sampler. Then again, I’m not a fan of chai in general, but I do like “holiday” flavors, so that’s probably why. Smells nutmeggy and wonderful, like a pumpkin pie. The spices aren’t too brash in the tea but like some of the other reviewers I can’t quite taste the black tea. I’m not complaining, though—I like the effect. Definitely gets me in the holiday spirit…in July. Whoops.
First time I tried this tea was at Christmas, my parents know I love chai so they figured they’d get some for me. I was a little skeptical because usually I only get the spiced/double spice chai from stash, but I was very pleasantly surprised! With a bit of milk and sugar this is most definitely one of my favorite teas, it smells amazing and tastes just as good.
