I like this flavor mixed with my white ayurvedic white chai. Question though, does anyone know which out of those two flavors have caffeine? Thx!

Tried this at the Teavana. Had it as a hot sample. Tasted great, but I couldn’t really get much depth from the flavor until I asked to buy it iced with a bit of sugar added… it was just an okay, hot peppery drink. This blend (sweet or otherwise) really comes through when iced! I think I’m gonna cold brew this when I buy it. I’m thinkin’ that’ll make a really nice contrast by adding the smoothness of a cold brew to the peppery kick of the blend.
I’m a HUGE chai fan and this is a great chai mix. It’s spicy and sweet with a huge depth of flavors. It has some citrus notes, peppery hit and a burst a cinnamon. When I first made this tea I brewed for recommended time and found it very weak. Maybe I just like my teas strong but I let the tea brew for a long while and enjoyed it much more. I add a bit a sugar because I think it helps bring out the flavors.
This is my absolute favorite tea but I can’t drink too much of it at a time because the spices irritate my acid reflux something awful. I make it with two tablespoons of Teavana’s rock sugar which I keep in the same can as the tea. The sugar absorbs the flavor of the tea and the tea is sweet and spicy and absolutely delicious by itself or with milk.
This blend is very hit or miss for me. When it’s good, its spicy complexity reaches a balance of perfection but when it’s bad, it can come across overwhelmingly peppery and even on occasion weak. It’s definitely been a finicky brew for me.
EDIT: I think I’ve finally figured the steeping for this and now it’s my go to tea when I need a little motivation to get stuff done. No less than 6 minutes.
I really like this tea, had it as a sample, and I’ve never like chai. This is a good warming tea after a hard day or a good tea for nausea or stomach issues. This is really good w/ raw sugar but even better w/ teavanas rock sugars. Ive always been confused as if this tea contained caffeine or not???
