Barely recognizable as a chai. Super spicy with a sweet aftertaste. Tastes like cinnamon hearts. The spice seems to strengthen as it cools.

Not as spicy as the Maharaja Chai Oolong/Samurai Chai Mate Blend, but still too spicy for my liking.

This is a sweet and spicy blend that can stand alone without sugar or cream. If you want something especially sweet, though, adding a little bit of honey makes it tangy and helps smooth out the sharper spices that lie in this drink, without overwhelming them.

This is one of my favourite teas of all time. I love the light but herbal/spicy taste. Granted the spicy is not a hot type of spicy, but more of a “you know there is spices in it.” I have turned a couple of my coworkers onto this tea and they are not normally hot tea drinkers.

First of all, this tea smells amazing! It’s a nice fall tea, but if it’s steeped just a little too long the taste can get really intense and way too spicy. I’m looking forward to mixing it with some other teas to get some new flavors.

This is one of my favorite teas. I mix it with White Ayurvedic Chai which also comes from Teavana. I always make my teas to taste so I use 3 tsp per 8-10oz glass (1.5 tsp is recommended) and steep for 3 minutes. Water temp is recommended at 175F but I again i make my teas to taste so I just use hot water from my Keurig. I was using the sugar from teavana which is absolutely wonderful but regular sugar tastes fine too. I just switched to Splenda in an attempt to cut sugar from my diet.

Not my favorite by far. I’m open to trading this tea. If you’re interested contact me. I have about 1.5 oz as of today (8/17).

A fruity Chai with a cinnamon kick

Very flavorful with no bitter aftertaste. The caffeine is potent enough for a former coffee drinker. Great tea.

Last cup I had contained much less of a mate flavor than previous steeps. I love it without the overpowering kick.
