Oprah Chai Herbal Blend from Teavana

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Blend

2 / 100 Aroma: 1/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Jan. 26th, 2016

This was the worst thing I've ever seen to come out of Starbucks and Teavana, and the worst thing I've seen associated with Oprah's name. It's an abomination, absolutely abhorrent.

The cup has an overwhelming aroma of fake cinnamon, like those fireball candies that I hated as a kid. If you like fireball candies (o...

Green Chai from Wegmans

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 7th, 2015

Green chai is always a tricky one for me; I think of masala chai as being a blending tradition that is inextricably woven into the flavor profile of strong black teas. While traditional masala chai goes well with milk, I think of green tea as not going well with milk at all. I never know what to expect when I try a g...

I loathe Chai and this one (now at all Starbucks who bought out Teavana some time ago) is no different. Blargh!

That said, if you like Chai - and Cinnamon/Nutmeg-y flavors you might like this.

I can't stand it.

An excellent, high quality chai. The leaf smells so refreshing! I love the spice mixture.

I've tried this one a few different ways and have reached a few conclusions:

1) It's very nice even without milk and sugar.

2) If you want to make a latte, make sure the milk is heated at the same time as the water before...

Mar. 6th, 2015

A smooth, mild chai that was pleasant to drink but disappointing in its lack of strength and cinnamon-heavy spice blend. Sampled at Velvet Sky bakery.

This tea was surprisingly weak and unsatisfying, even when brewed using more leaf than I normally use. I'm also not crazy about the combination of spices. Cinnamon ...

It's not my all-time favorite chai, but this tea is very solid. The cardamom flavor is the most notable and it provides a certain briskness to it. You should, in my opinion, definitely add a bit of sugar and milk (creamer works too if that's all you have at your job). This really makes it an enjoyable, fairly invigorat...

Feb. 28th, 2015

One of the worst chai teas that I've had. There was way too much cinnamon and was very poorly balanced. Also, the price is quite high for a chai tea of this quality. The aroma was pleasing, even after brewing. It smelled like it should taste better than it did. Overall, I don't recommend it.

Feb. 25th, 2015

I love this tea, especially blended with Teavana's Samurai Chai Mate. You can easily see and smell the spice combination of cloves, cinnamon, pepper, and nutmeg. My only issue is that the spices lose their individuality in the liquor and the tea tastes "one note" when it is not blended with another tea. Overall, a fant...

The aroma starts out with a strong note of dried apples giving it a blend of sweet and just a hint of tart, this moved onto pepper, cloves, a but of cinnamon, and just a touch of cardamon and coconut at the finish. It certainly smells like a chai, but it has a tropical edge from the coconut and a much milder spice prof...

A nice chai! I enjoyed the spices and thought they blended well with the rooibos. I didn't try it with milk, but suspect it would be great with the creaminess that would impart. I'll have to get this one again to give it a fuller review.

Nov. 18th, 2014

The flavor of this chai is excellent, if somewhat less spicy than is my preference; however, be warned that you'll need to limit the size of the cup if you want to be able to taste much of anything. No tall cups or full thermoses for you! For those of you who like to make chai lattes, I would avoid adding milk and suga...

The aroma from my little pile of CTC leaves and spices is sweet, spicy, and malty! There is a strong ginger note, a moderately strong note of cardamon, and lastly a mellow note of malt and a finish of cinnamon.

This is a very mellow Chai, taken traditionally with milk (ok I use Half & Half since I love creaminess) ...

I adore a good chai tea, but I thought this one could have stood to possess more of a 'kick'. I also couldn't quite tell where I was supposed to detect the vanilla! I did not prepare this chai as a latte, and I have the feeling that had I done so I might not have been able to detect any actual spice at all. Nonetheless...

Presuming this is the same tea as Wegman's Organic Chocolate Chai. ($39.99/LB) This tea looks neat in the package with the huge chunks of chocolate but we will see how the transitions to the steeped product.

As this was steeping, I could smell cinnamon and chocolate throughout my first floor. As I hold my mug cl...

Heads Up: I need to redo this rating, as I'm sure I was not rating the herbal version.

I was worried about this tea due to it seeming gimmicky, but I was pleasantly surprised how very tasty it was. Full flavor balanced between spiciness and sweetness. I would happily drink this many, many times. I should note that t...

A weak chai blend which was passable, but not particularly chocolatey, slightly overpriced, and which I thought tasted better with milk.

I tried brewing with and without milk, and I thought it was much better with milk, but I recommend a lowish proportion (1tsp / cup) but it still tastes a little weak. Flavor is sm...

I like chai teas, but this is the first chocolate chai that I've tried. The aroma is mostly overpowered with cinnamon. Alex advised me to take out the chocolate chunks because he thought they would ruin the tea brewer, so I did, but I wasn't sure whether I was supposed to. Anyway, I didn't taste the chocolate flavor mu...

The aroma is a happy dance of sweet chocolate, rich spices, and nutty coconut. It reminds me a bit of xocolatl but with coconut and the earthiness of black tea. This tea smells delicious.

The taste is malty and chocolaty with a gentle kick of cinnamon. It moves on from the initial malt and chocolate to rich buttery...

the Saigon cinnamon and pink peppercorns give this chai its character. The whole cardamom and cloves are great and maintain their flavor over time. To enhance the flavor, I usually isolate a few of the whole cardamoms, pepper seeds and cloves and gently crush them before adding back to the mixture.
The tea is a bit...

Love this tea! Outstanding aroma and taste. This is a bit more chai than coconut, but it is very good tea. This tea has a warming effect and is great on slightly colder days or evenings.

Chai tea is a bit hit and miss with me, and I have to be in the right mood for it but this interesting tea from Australian tea house T2 is magnificent. Traditional chai spices combine with cacao bean pieces to create a very moreish brew with spicy/chocolately/nutty notes. An absolute winner!
