From Teavana

This delicious chai is made from Aspalathus linoaris, a South African plant that gives it a rich, red color. The red Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and filled with vitamin C, minerals, and proteins. And combined with cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, and lemongrass, it makes a wonderful herbal tea.

How to Prepare
Use 1.5 teaspoons of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 208 degrees and steep for 5-6 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Ingredients:
Red Rooibos with ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, lemongrass and cardamom.

This tea goes great with milk (almond milk), is not that spicy, but i like strong ginger flavor. I dont fell the ginger in this tea that much. But i still like it.

It’s been about two weeks since I made this (both hot and iced), so my memory isn’t the best. When I made it hot first, the lemongrass flavor was really strong and there was none of the chai spice that I love. I added rock sugar when making it iced, which mellowed out the lemongrass flavor but didn’t improve the taste otherwise. It’s not a bad tea, it just doesn’t taste like a chai. Adagio’s rooibos chai is better, but my absolute favorite (which is technically a rooibos chai but tastes nothing like the other two) is Teavana’s Tulsi Dosha Chai.

Cinnamon is the taste I get from this one. It’s a great tasting Rooibos. I have to sweeten it up with honey. My five year old likes it too.

OMGosh! This tea sticks to me like a perfum. I lick my lips for a taste, I kiss my boys and they say I smell yummy, its on me & my clothes…crazy but in a tasty way.

Teavana’s Rooibos Chai smells spectacular, but is a little weak for a chai. However, blending it with their Masala Chai (which isn’t my favorite, but works in a pinch) made for a fuller blend with a more subtle blend of spices- a new favorite from my small collections of Chais.

I’ve not had all that good experiences with Teavana’s rooibos blends in the past, but I decided to give this one a tentative go…

In the cup it smells pretty nicely of cinnamon spice and just the barest hint of that cardboard rooibos note that can linger in the lower-quality ones…but the flavour doesn’t quite match up with the scent.

I mean, it smells like it should be really good but the taste is just a flat and rather mediocre cinnamon without the depth and heat that I expect from a quality chai.

Not sure what I’ll be doing with this one, but I’m not all that excited to drink it again…

i feel you on this one, i have their Dosha Chai Rooibos which is a complete and utter disappointment. yack.

They had a chai that I liked a long time ago…maybe it was a honeybush one (or my tastebuds have a faulty memory)?

I’ve been trying to find it for ages, but I keep getting cupfuls of drek. Meh.

Chai is my favorite to drink in the cooler weather, and I love having a caffeine free version. I got a lot of this during one of the 75% off sales, and sort of wish I hadn’t. It is delicious, but I wish the spices were a bit stronger. I have to use more tea than I normally would to make a cup that has flavor even after I add almond milk.

Pretty decent tea if it weren’t for the lemon grass. Yuck. For some reason this just doesn’t mix well with the other favors. I like warm spicey chai and I like lemon but not together!! after tasting the lemon grass… It was all I could taste and didn’t really enjoy the tea anymore.

My high anticipation was met with a cough syrup-like artificial taste. I will have to adjust my brew times and see what transforms this into a drinkable brew. Although I typically drink my tea black, a splash of milk may be in order.

This is my first tasting note. I got this tea while on vacation in Baltimore. I drink peppermint and ginger tea for digestive benefits, and I wanted something along the ginger lines but with a little more pizzazz, so I got a couple ounces of this on the recommendation of a Teavana employee. So far, so good.
