One of my favorite teas! The spices are strong, the cardamom and cloves in particular. This tea is good plain, or with sugar and milk. You can’t go wrong!
I’m a huge fan of iced chai tea, but my experiences with warm chai weren’t as good, so I’ve been looking for the perfect one. This is the closest I’ve gotten! It’s got a great scent, and tastes wonderful with a little cream and some honey. I’m actually sipping it right now. :)
This is very good! Its melange of sweet and spicy flavors is perfectly accentuated with a splash of milk. It’s not too sweet, but it’s not dull, either. No one flavor is overpowering. If I ordered this tea in an Indian restaurant, I would be more than satisfied!
By the way—is this the same/a newer version of Tazo’s “Organic Chai”? Does anyone know?
I’m trying to expand my horizons on tea (and chai especially), but I seem to come back to this one every time. I keep thinking the more expensive loose tea blends should be better than this out-of-a-box-get-it-at-any-grocery-store tea, but I have yet to find one that stands up to the Tazo Chai. The blend is the perfect balance of the black tea and the spices and it’s really really hard to brew it wrong. I’m still exploring the world of chai, but I’m beginning to feel I’ll have to travel to India to find a better one than this.
