From Teajo Teas

The black tea in this blend is single estate and originates from a garden in Northern India known for producing full-bodied tea. If you like a little spice, this blend of full leaf black tea, cinnamon, ginger and other natural ingredients make a delicious breakfast Chai! Add a little steamed milk for even richer flavor!

This is a really nice Chai. The first time, I made it with a teaspoon of tea and steeped it for 3 min in water at the boil. The black tea base that they use for their tea is nice and never bitter. The spices are not overdone. It is well balanced and on the milder side, but flavorful. Next, I made it double strength, and not having any milk, I added a splash of 1/2 and 1/2. I really like it this way. I appreciate that I could get a great cup of Chai without going to the trouble of preparing it on the stove in the traditional way. Teajo now offers samples for sale which give you about 10-12 cups per sample. I ordered 6 different tea samples from them and have been happy with all of them. I like the generous sample size because I can experiment a little and try it more than once before deciding whether to buy more.

I got this at the NYC meet-up, but I can’t remember if it was from Greenteafairy or if it was from Nicole_Martin. Thank you, whichever one of you gave it to me! I need to start labeling my teas a little better. :-)

I drank this straight without anything in it. I really liked that I could taste the Assam. So many chais are so overly-spiced that you can’t taste the tea itself. This assam has the golden, sweet, and malty taste that I’m growing to really love. The spices are a nice blend- maybe slightly too heavy with the cardamon. I’m really craving some honey for this. I should start keeping some at work.

greenteafairy

That was from me! It’s interesting that you found it heavy on the cardamom, because I couldn’t taste any – I found it cinnamon-heavy, actually. I tried to make sure I mixed the bag up thoroughly before making each cup, but I’m wondering if I did a bad job of that… Agreed on the base, though; it is nice!

Fuzzy_Peachkin

I really didn’t pick up that much cinnamon. I read your note after and I liked it because it wasn’t to heavy on the spices and I think you mentioned that you preferred ones that are more spicy! It’s funny how we all taste things differently!

This was a free sample from Teajo!

This makes a nice and balanced Chai that I’m really enjoying. I’ve had a few lately that had too much cardamom or something, but I have no complaints here! When I was choosing my sample, I noticed that the prices were pretty reasonable – I might have to place an order.

I wish I could just smell this tea all day…

I received this as a sample from Teajo Teas several months ago and am just now – very belatedly! – getting around to trying it. I didn’t do the stovetop thing (although I’d like to try it sometime); I just followed the instructions on the packaging: 1 tsp. in 8 oz. boiling water for 3 minutes.

I mostly tasted the assam – it’s a very nice, high-quality base, without any bitterness. The pepper also came through quite strongly. Ginger and cinnamon are detectable, but faint. I couldn’t pick out any of the other spices. I love ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom, so I was a bit disappointed not to be getting more of these in particular. About halfway through my cup, I added a generous splash of almond milk. I thought it might bring out some of the hidden spices, but unfortunately it just overwhelmed the chai.

This was very pleasant, but I do prefer a more assertively-spiced chai. Reading the other reviews, though, I’m wondering if I may not have done a good job mixing up my bag – I did give it a good shake beforehand, but I’ll pay more attention when I make my next cup.

This is a really authentic Chai tea that tastes just like the stuff I drank in India. It doesn’t have all those other artificial additives that Starbucks and other companies add. It’s got a bit of a spicy taste to it as it has pepper, cardamom, etc. It tastes really good with milk.

I can’t believe I got a sample of this and waited a year to review. I’m hanging my head in shame guys. This is what happens when you’re drowning in tea and always say you’ll write a review “later” .

This is my second to last serving. I wanted to make it proper style on the stovetop but then I realized that since we just moved I one—don’t have a proper pot, and two—have no sweetener. So I’m drinking it straight up.

It’s good. Not amazing but balanced spices and a solid foundation. This isn’t a fancy tea. It’s a no muss no fuss basic chai and it does it’s job well.

Frolic

Oops I forgot to mention it smelled super appley to me. Like I thought it was an apple cider tea at first wiff. There was definitely an apple note in the flavor as well.

This is what happens when I write tea reviews before I’ve properly woken up. I forget to actually mention the notes of the tea!

True to name this one is just a solid, classic chai…the black base is smooth and well-rounded and the spices are just the right mix of heat and flavour. It’s rare to find a chai that’s this balanced, so this is actually pretty awesome.

It’s not outstanding in terms of having novel flavours or being really out-there…but if you just want a nice, dependable chai this is a great option. Two thumbs up.

I don’t know how much i used, i just dumped the last bits from the sample bag into a pot with some Oolong (that had been steeped maybe 5 times? i kind of lost track). The resulting liquid was dark, like puerh DARK. I added lots of milk and sugar and wow it’s knock your socks off good. I def. like the subtle flavor that the oolong added. P: Wish i had more of this chai :(
