Like another user mentioned, this tastes like spicy hot cinnamon candy. Cinnamon flavoured candy gives me a headache, and this has such a strong taste (and even smell) of cinnamon that I couldn’t take more than one sip (which makes me wary of all Teavana spicy teas). I love cinnamon used in small quantities in things like apple or pumpkin pie, cinnamon toast, or /other/ chais I’ve had, but in this one, “overpowering” is an understatement.
I tried 3 teaspoons for my cup this time. I kind of forgot I was steeping this and walked away, so it sat for 3 minutes instead of 2.
The 3 teaspoons still didn’t help make this tea better for me. It’s just not flavorful or strong enough. When this one is gone I will not be reordering.
Another Teavana tea that I bought when I first started out in loose leaf brewing. This tea, like many others have said, tastes and smells like either “Big Red” chewing gum or those cinnamon candy hearts. Because of this, it tastes and smells artificial. The cinnamon overpowers any other aspect the tea might have had, even though it really wasn’t that strong. I wouldn’t describe the taste as “hot” or “spicy” like you’d expect in a cinnamon chai. It really just tastes like brewed Big Red without the hot aspect. It wasn’t undrinkable or bad, just uneventful and bland. I finished it, but I wouldn’t buy it again.
Definately not one I’d recommend to anyone looking for a good, flavorful chai. This one shouldn’t even be listed as one, regardless of the ingredients they put in it.
