Well, my sister bought this one for me for Christmas, and I love a good chai, so I tried it. The smell is quite nice; the spices really come out while it’s brewing. On tasting it though, I was a little disappointed. The wonderful spices just sort of mellowed and disappeared inside of the black tea flavor. There are some hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, but not enough to redeem it. I wanted to like it more than I did.
