Delicious! I’m surprised at how much I like this tea because I normally don’t like a lot of spices. But this tea blend works! :D
“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... "I'm...” 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

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???
I bought this after sampling it in the store. I agree with the other reviewers who found that they could not get the same flavor brewing it at home. When I brew it, it is a fairly watery chai that tastes most strongly of cloves. I think the secret must be large quantities of tea with a hefty dose of sweetener to bring out the other flavors. It’s not terrible, but it’s not the best chai I’ve had. I prefer Tao of Tea’s Mate Chai – it has a more robust and complex flavor, and costs almost a dollar less per ounce.
