Very fruity, you can barely taste the white tea.

Although the citrus flavor is present, it is not a typical orange flavor, more grapefruit, which doesn’t deter from the deliciousness overall.

This was a sample that came with my Teavana orders, which included rock sugar, so it was easy steeping right out of the bag.

Just realized I’ve been oversteeping this tea, as it is flavored white tea, it should be steeped for 2 minutes instead of 3.

It is less bitter, a bit lighter on spice, but the flavor is still bright and full, and this is still my favorite chai blend.

The blend of spices and nuts tell me “holiday drink” the more I sip this.

I may have to buy more for winter.

Beautifully sweet and fruity, the cranberry and peach is very bright and stands out with its similarly sweet aroma.

It is surprisingly sweet enough to not require rock sugar, as I have done adding just under a teaspoon. Next time, I will try it without sugar.

A very rich and very nutty tea, with a slight refreshing mint.

The chocolate taste does not overtake the overall richness of the tea, very balanced.

I added more rock sugar than I usually add to other teas, approximately 2 teaspoons.

My second favorite chai tea, the spices are what really make me enjoy a brew of this.

It is very rich and spicy, just the right amount of kick that accents well with the woody oolong flavor.

Sweetened with just about a teaspoon of rock sugar.

The smell is a blend of sweet citrus and lightly nutty, with the combination of almonds and pistachios, and a subtle spice.

The taste mirrors the aroma exactly, giving off a delectable quality blend mixed with light white tea.

I added half a teaspoon to compliment the sweet citrus.

It is a joy to now start each day sipping on cookies.

The flavor never gets old, as I have already purchased more in case I finish the whole 2 oz. before I get to refill my container.

This is my daily tea, mainly steeped in the early or late afternoon.

The spices and citrus accents make it perfect to enjoy anytime during the afternoon and consistently explodes with every sip.

I am not quite sure about this one.

Right away, this has a very strong floral aroma mixed with chai accents, which is quite overwhelming as you are sipping it.

It is a very light flavor that starts subtly, but explodes once it passes your tongue, not too spicy with a slight nutty taste.

I can see this as a nice nooner tea, it does not overwhelm with taste, and it does taste pretty good.
