After completely enjoying Tazo’s Organic Chai, I am disappointed. I guess my expectation was deep and bold flavor but like many others, I found it was highly astringent and bitter. However, I saw that someone gave it an ultra short steep and got better results, I will try that, but I am not very hopeful. Like another note I saw recently, I agree that this brand has so much potential but seems more concerned with marketing than taste.

Ok, I revisited this with a 3 minute steep this morning, still bitter. Less bitter but…I am still amazed that a flagship company can’t produce a decent black.
All that is left now is to blend with a bag of something I like and hope to drown the bitterness…
