Dec. 30th, 2016

One of the things I enjoy with either newly attempted teas, or favorite and familiar ones, is to breathe deeply from the freshly opened packaging and take in the scent of the dried tea. Since this concoction is labeled as vanilla with chai, I had a very well-defined, preconceived notion of how this would smell. Not e...

I shall weave a story about my pathetic ignorance sure to amuse tea drinkers the world over. Twinings Chai was the tea that I sampled by taking a plastic coffeemaker-brewing container (not the K-cup, but the two-inch-wide flatter kind) that someone had left in the "FREE TAKE ONE!" area at work.

Caveat: I like intense, smashmouth flavors, and this tea qualifies. Everything about it is an explosion of chai spices, from the room-filling aroma of a freshly opened box of bags to the robust balance of ingredients.

The only mark against TJ's chai for me was that the flavor carried an unexpectedly noticeable b...

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...

Chai is not my go to flavor, but sometimes it really hits the spot. This chai tea is the best I've found at our local grocery. It's my husband's favorite.

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...

As others have noted, clove and pepper come through in this tea. Cinnamon and other flavors are subtle. I added sugar and milk and really liked it. In short, as a bagged tea this one is pretty solid.

My nose needs improvement, I realize, but I smelled cinnamon as the dominant spice. Can cloves, which my fellow reviewers have noticed playing such a dominant role in this tea, mimic cinnamon to such a great degree? I don't know. Whether cinnamon or clove, one note drowns out all others. We live in a world where good c...

I really, really like this one. It's a great chai that works the chocolate flavoring just right. The cardamom is the most noticeable spice for the first couple cups, with the cinnamon showing up later. In both cases they were very smooth, not overwhelming or out of place.

This also works well whether you drink it pl...

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.

It smells good, but the taste of cloves is really overpowering. When the tea is in my mouth I feel like I'm drinking hot water with a bunch of ground cloves mixed in, and it almost tastes burnt. Only after swallowing it do I detect any of the other spices: some ginger and a surprisingly small amount of cinnamon. I can'...

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...

A traditional chai that is smooth in flavor but is potently spiced, and equally enjoyable with and without milk.

For having such a finely-broken (CTC) base, this tea is surprisingly mellow and smooth. The dry leaf smells very fresh and light, and the dominant aroma is cardamom, and I can also detect clove. This bo...

Not bad, but a bit too dominated by licorice (aroma and flavor) for my taste. Spicy, sweet, and best as a latte in my opinion. It doesn't go bitter easily, thankfully.

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...

Quite solid tea. I only tried it straight, without milk or sugar. I suspect it'd be even better with milk and perhaps sweetener, but it's pretty good on its own. Cinnamon is definitely the strongest spice I smell. Decently substantial flavor without bitterness. If you're needing a cheap decaffeinated chai, this one isn...

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.

Nice warm smell with a twinge of spice...very light and soothing, taste is very middle of the road...mild, slight bitter green tea taste, good finish that is very slightly spiced...much more "vegetable-ly" and bitter when cools and bag stays in ...only complaint is that it is boring

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...

After reading the reviews that said the flavor was a bit weak, I steeped mine until the water turned cold and added a bit of sugar and milk. I think the longer brewing time helped the weak flavor. It was pretty good, though a bit astringent at the bottom of my mug. The aroma is awesome, but the flavor just doesn't live...
