Thanks so much, CharlotteZero for this one! For some reason I assumed with this being a chai, that the yerba mate would be roasted. I can tell pouring the water and it turning a lovely shade of sea foam green that it is not roasted. I’m glad I didn’t use boiling water then, or it would have burnt the yerba mate. I taste tested after brewing for five minutes, but I thought it needed some more and brewed another five. I’m also not sure how the spices can be their best if I didn’t use boiling water. It’s a conundrum… use boiled water and you ruin the yerba mate. Use cooled water and the spices aren’t as pronounced. I don’t know. I like this, but I could be wrong… it seemed there was some stevia here. Not the Celestial Seasonings pumpkin ridiculous level of stevia though! A good yerba mate and some nice spices, but I kept noticing that stevia.

Not sure how I feel about this one. I have yet to find a chai that is “it”…and after drinking this one, I still haven’t found it.

I need to steep this one for a long time to bring out the flavors. That said, it holds the delightful greenness that I hope for from mate tea. There’s a sweet aftertaste that is almost medicinal—that’s the part that gets me in the wrong way. Still not a bad cup! Warm on a cold day, add a wee bit of milk—what more could you ask for, in the end?

I had to force this down, and actually couldn’t finish it. I tried adding cream, which might have made it worse. Maybe it’s better iced?

2 tea bags for 14 oz hot, not boiling, water. Steeped for 10 minutes this time for richer flavor. Did not add milk this time, though it would probably be good with a splash. Smooth, vanilla-y chai.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Licorice, Nutmeg, Vanilla

My confidence in Guayaki to put together tasty mate blends continues to grow. This isn’t all that strong, either in terms of the chai spices or the mate, but it is very tasty. When I search for the mate flavor I’m dissapointed, although the mouth feel and body is there. When I concentrate on the cinnamon, licorice, ginger, nutmeg, and clove, I wonder if perhaps I should have steeped this a bit hotter. But that doesn’t matter. These things do come together and the result is very tasty. Sometimes blends should be judged by one thing, does it work? This works, especially with some sweetener and a dash of milk.

Dang, I was really disappointed here. The tea is VERY mild for Chai spices…can’t even taste the bitter bite of maté…oh well…definitely wouldn’t recommend this- the price is NOT worth the super mild taste. Going to try two teabags and less water but you know…it says to add milk for a chai latté but I’m lactose intolerant so does anyone know if almond milk works okay in tea?

I greatly enjoy this tea. You do have to let it steep a bit longer than others, but that flavorful chai is worth the wait. It could stand to be a bit spicier for me sometimes, but I do like it quite a bit.

Too subtle for my taste.

For a tea that boasts organic cinnamon, organic licorice, organic ginger, organic nutmeg, organic clove and organic stevia—I find the tea lacking flavor depth and tasting watery.

Still great as a soothing late night drink to warm your bones in winter.

This tea was less than mediocre. While it can warm someone up and it light in taste, it hits with a hard sluggish feeling afterwards. It was not spicy, nor did it really have the “chai” flavors. Rather, it tasted like a generic, herbal tea dust that had been forgotten about for a few years in the back of someone’s pantry. Additionally, it left a thick layer or residue along the bottom of my teacup from dusting along the tea bad and that which had escaped it. I was not at all impressed, but I hope to find someone who can enjoy it.

Quite enjoyable. Just what I needed to warm me up before heading off to Mt. Rainier today!
