Rich and Aromatic. Smooth and Spicy.

Ingredients: Black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger root, pepper, clove

A traditional blend of black teas and spices finely ground to release the maximum amount of flavor and aroma. Richly aromatic and brisk flavor makes this dessert in a cup. Enhance the flavor with some milk and some agave.

Backlogging and based mostly on memory

Experience buying from Village Tea Company Positive.

I ordered from Village Tea Company in the fall of 2011 (they had a special going on that they advertized on Steepster, something like $10 off $20), and along with the awesome tasting vanilla rooibos, we got these. We brewed these pouches up a number of times that fall/winter.

I think we were able to get three decent steepings out of each pouch. The pouches are nice-looking, seem to have plenty of room for the leaf to breath, and seem well-designed.

It looks like there are nice-sized tea leaves in the pouches, and it all smells great.

I really like their cardboard containers: they are stylish and the lid fits very tightly.

It’s a quality chai, and so we have enjoyed these each time we brewed them up (with soy milk). I like the convenience of the pouches as my wife can brew these up on her own.

I think this was my/our first whole-leaf chai—not counting standard type tea bags (it’s hard to remember now) so I’m leaving off the rating.

This is a spicy chai, exactly how I like it. Every time I open the box I can’t help from sneezing.

The directions suggest combining half boiling water with half boiling milk and then steeping the bag, but I found this tea does just fine steeped with only milk (I steam it with my espresso machine). To top it off I add some vanilla bean paste and coconut sugar to taste and I have one delicious chai tea latte (just as good if not better than Starbucks IMO, and I don’t have to use the concentrate).
