Really enjoyed this chai. It is heavy on the cinnamon but I like that. I think I paid about $2.50 for the box which is a steal. A big factor with chai to me is if its strong when you add the sugar and milk, the worst is if it gets a little thin once you add those. There was no issue with that with Bengal Spice. Enjoy.

I don’t care that this is a bagged tea I JUST LOVE IT! Sometime I think people turn their nose up at bagged tea but you are missing out my friend.

I love it for so many reasons especially the convenience of it being a bagged tea and I can have it at work with no fuss no muss. I love it because I have been sick all week and feeling cold and achy and one mouthful of this and I felt warmed and loved.

The smell is intoxicating for me its sweet and cinnamony and the spice its just perfect. This is the first time that I have had a celestial tea and so far I like them a lot.

More interesting finds from my moms tea cabinet. She said this is close to a chai tea. Sort of. It’s really more of a strong Spiced tea. And when I say strong, I mean the scent alone cleared my sinuses.

I’m actually not a huge fan of spiced teas, but this one I like for some reason. Still, the spice flavor overwhelms the tea base. But I guess that’s what a spiced tea is supposed to be.

In that case, this is an amazing Spiced Tea. I’m just not a spiced tea fan.

Very surprised by the quality of this teabag, a great caffeine free alternative to a Chai tea. The tea had a bold character full of cinnamon but the offnotes of Ginger, cloves and nutmeg seem to fall short and have no stamina. The warm spiced tea has no bitter or astringent taste even when steeped for an excessive amount of time. It is naturally sweet and doesn’t need any sugar.

Nice but if you steep too long the flavour can become slightly overpowering. I enjoy this after dinner!

So, I revisited this tea. Instead of steeping in water, I did so in hot plain unsweetened almond milk for 4-5 minutes (made it quite strong). Then added a little SF Vanilla syrup.

Wow, this is actually really good now.

This is soooo good!
So spicy and exotic to me. It makes me think of drinking a melange tea from Dune (which may be because of watching that movie while drinking it, but it’s how I’d like to believe a tea made with melange would taste).
Gorgeous cinnamon and spice taste and scent. I found the taste significantly different in my older couple year box from my new box. Both delicious, but different spices coming to the forefront. The newer, fresher box reminds me of cinnamon hearts. Even without drinking this tisane, it’s worth making a cup just to smell it!
I like drinking this with milk and possibly sweetener.

I had long been wary of this no-black-tea attempt at Indian spices, but received a box worth as a gift so dutifully gave it a few cups’ try. Suffice to say, I was right to be scared. Too much spice in the form of nutmeg & pepper overwhelmed with vanilla and nowhere near enough of the ginger, cinnamon and cardamom that would make an herbal ‘chai’ emulation worthwhile. Will be leaving the rest of this box at work for the less chai-obsessed folk.

This tea was WAY TOO SWEET! I finished the cup but it was a struggle.

The spice blend was ok but not that good but what really ruined it was the fact that it was overly sweet.

I tried it again blended with a regular chai tea thinking that it might make it taste better. unfortunately this blend was also a disappointment. Sorry but I just can’t recommend Bengal Spice.

I will end up giving the rest of the box away if I can find someone else who likes this stuff.
