I got this as a gift from my mother in law well before i even knew about mate (for shame i know) Im not a big chai person but this is a very well spiced blend. I recommend it to anyone interested in a decent chai.
“Holy crap, Teavana is discontinuing this blend! I ordered one last mix for my stock pile, and I guess I’ll have to explore making chai blends again. This was my favorite for so long…...” Read full tasting note
“I now have my own stash of this tea (I first tried it through a coworker). It’s a windy cold day, and I’m really in the mood for something spicy. I feel like my indie cred is totally...” Read full tasting note
“Made a second steep from last nights leaves. Much more citrus came through in this steep and I actually tasted some of the lovely white tea. The spices were still present and I loved it.” Read full tasting note
“Fair Warning! I knew this one would be long but now looking back on it after I’ve written it, it’s absurdly long. In fact, it’s most likely my longest post ever....” Read full tasting note
A sip of this sweetly robust straight up Mate blend awakens the Samurai within. Inspired by the Way of the Warrior, this fresh green Mate is imbued with strong spices, invigorating herbs and revitalizing citrus. A wonderful cup of tea that will get you moving!

This tea has totally changed since Starbucks bought teavana out. I ordered this online as usual and WOW it tastes like grass. What a waste of money.
I am getting a refund and have now ordered from David’s Tea. Honey Bee looks similar, as well as Exotica. I can’t wait to try mixing these new teas. Starbucks messed it up. Tragic!!
I’ll be back with my interpretation of the new teas.
I don’t generally care for Teavana (in fact, I generally avoid them at all cost because I can’t stand being attacked by sales people), but I love this tea. This blend was actually what got me into tea in the first place. It is a very smooth chair, with light spices and some notes of berry. It is very easy to steep correctly, you just have to steep it for a long time (I do like my tea strong). I generally steep it for 10 or so minutes. One of my favorite teas.
