An authentic South Indian delight. Strong, broken black tea is anchored by the warmth of cinnamon, cardamom and cloves. Add milk and sweetener for an experience half a world away.

Made on the stovetop per the Samovar extra black tea recipe with Teavana Assam Gold Rain as the extra black tea.

The dry mixture smells mostly of cinnamon with a touch of ginger.

Not as spicy as the Rishi and not as rich as the Samovar, but a tasty, mild blend. It reminds me of the Golden Moon Kashmiri Chai in terms of flavor, but I prefer the GM. On the continuum of very spicy to less spicy, this is less spicy than the Golden Moon, which I already found to be pretty mild. There is pepper listed among the ingredients, but I wasn’t at all aware of its presence.

I’d probably choose another blend over this one for my staple milder chai, but I wouldn’t at all mind drinking this if it were offered to me.

Thank you to Rachel for sending me a bit of this to try!

I have not yet tried any teas from TeaGschwendner but it is a company that I’ve been planning a purchase from for some time now. It is nice to be able to try a tea from them before placing an order.

I tried it first without steamed, frothed milk or sweetener, and I found that after brewing 4 minutes, there was a hint of bitterness to the tea. When I added the milk and honey, the bitterness disappeared.

But what didn’t disappear is the bold, strong presence of the tea and the warm and peppery spices. It is a pleasantly spiced chai. YUM!

Very delicious and even the tea looks authentic with the broken leaves. You can taste all the flavors vividly and as tradition dictates I put in a little cream and sugar. It was divine.

The aroma of the dry blend is lovely – primarily cinnamon with a hint of cardamon. The brewed tea is a deep golden brown with the aroma of cinnamon, cardamon and cloves. This is a solid chai choice to be enjoyed by any and all!

Not as good as my holy grail chai, but pretty good! Dominant ginger and cinnamon notes, and a smell of gingerbread. Great with soy milk and sweetener. Sad I only got a single pack og this now, because it’s really quite enjoyable. The spices aren’t particular spicy or dominating, so if that’s what you’d like, I’d suggest you look elsewhere, but if you want a smooth chai, I’d recommend this. It might be better steeped with more than the recommended amount of tea for a stronger flavour, but it’s really good, and unlike the Celestial Seasonings chai, it doesn’t have that heavy vanilla that makes it seem inauthentic.

Overall, this is a good quality, easy-to-drink chai for people who are keen on ginger and cinnamon as the key players of the flavour, and who are perhaps not looking for a dessert-y experience heavy on vanilla.

Very good with fake creamer and fake sugar. Could probably use a bit more steeping time.

This is currently my favorite chai (and, paradoxically, another one I forgot to leave a note for). It can power through three reinfusions at the least, but I can’t help but wonder why the black tea is so minced up — it’s like the consistency of black pepper.

Anyways, this is a rather forgiving chai that probably won’t knock the socks off too many.
