From Teavana

This delicious chai is made from Aspalathus linoaris, a South African plant that gives it a rich, red color. The red Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and filled with vitamin C, minerals, and proteins. And combined with cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, and lemongrass, it makes a wonderful herbal tea.

How to Prepare
Use 1.5 teaspoons of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 208 degrees and steep for 5-6 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Red Rooibos with ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, lemongrass and cardamom.

Pretty decent tea if it weren’t for the lemon grass. Yuck. For some reason this just doesn’t mix well with the other favors. I like warm spicey chai and I like lemon but not together!! after tasting the lemon grass… It was all I could taste and didn’t really enjoy the tea anymore.

My high anticipation was met with a cough syrup-like artificial taste. I will have to adjust my brew times and see what transforms this into a drinkable brew. Although I typically drink my tea black, a splash of milk may be in order.

This is my first tasting note. I got this tea while on vacation in Baltimore. I drink peppermint and ginger tea for digestive benefits, and I wanted something along the ginger lines but with a little more pizzazz, so I got a couple ounces of this on the recommendation of a Teavana employee. So far, so good.

I’m enjoying this cup of tea, but I have trouble thinking of it as chai. The cinnamon is so strong with none of the other spices that I really enjoy in chai – but for a caffeine-free night-time tea, it fits the bill on a cool, rainy evening.

Having this tea tonight before going to bed instead of my traditional Foxtrot. I’m coming to notice some strong trends in the types of tea I like and they are: cinnamon, chai, or a good black tea (like dragon pearls). So I was pretty excited to find a rooibos chai so I could still have chai and cinnamon before going to bed instead of loading myself up on caffeine. I am loving this tea. Thanks again to Brandice for introducing me into tea. I am officially hooked on tea now. Today I even got another friend of mine to start trying some tea and she got some tea from Teavana. I can’t wait to hear what Yvette has to say about her tea trials..

This is a perfect early afternoon pick-me-up. I usually add a bit of candied ginger.

I don’t get all the negative ratings on this one. This is one of my favorite chais. I love the strong cinnamon flavor. I don’t think it’s too much at all, although I do add just a little Demerara sugar, as I do to most any tea (we southerners generally like our tea sweet, and hot tea is no exception). I typically don’t care for lemongrass, but I only taste a hint of it, so it doesn’t detract from the flavor.

I love this anytime, but especially when I’m under the weather. It’s just a great relaxing tea and it seems to coat my throat, which feels wonderful when my allergies are acting up and making my throat scratchy. It’s just a really smooth cup of tea that makes you feel good all over.

Again, caught off guard with the lemongrass, but I love it. The first time I tried it I only hate fake sugar and soy milk on hand and it was STILL excellent.

I absolutely want to try my rooibos chais after this. My only issue is that occasionally, bits of lemongrass will fall through my strainer and that’s just..eugh.

To begin with, I love chai teas! I under-steeped as a recourse to cut back on the overwhelming cinnamon on this 2nd attempt at tasting this tea. It is a bit more understated this time around. Although, afterwards it made me physically ill. Overall, not a fan of this tea but it came w/ the teavana starter pack and I thought I give it another try. If someone else enjoys this tea, I would be more than willing to swap or just give it away. I’ve only used 3 teaspoons out of the 2 oz.
