Overall a very good chai - way I would like chai (I'm Indian) to be. I find other chai brands to be over powered with cinnamon or chicory. Tazo has a better balance in the chai masala.
In Canada, Tazo is more expensive than US, but still worth it.
Let me know what others think is a better chai brand out there.

Irish Breakfast from Trader Joe's

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Assam, India

67 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 13th, 2014

Trader Joe's Original Irish Breakfast is a smooth and dark tea with a welcoming and appealing aroma. The longer the tea steeps the more bitter it becomes but at the suggested time of 3 to 5 minutes you will find a wonderful cup of tea that pleases. I typically drink this at work, two to three cups each day, as a regul...

Mar. 2nd, 2014

Updated Review: I tried this tea again and, this time, i was able to make it so that it was more enjoyable. As long as i don't let it overbrew and I add milk, this is actually quite a delightful tea--invigorating without being bitter.

The bergamot tastes natural, but I'd like a more robust citrus flavor. Last time I...

Mar. 1st, 2014

My local Indian Market was out of the Ahmad Kalami Assam, so I picked this one up instead. Quite different in flavor and aroma, but still an excellent value.

Brewed at 3 to 4 minutes maximum, and you get a bold, robust flavor and aroma, but with less complexity and maltiness than the Kalami Assam. The color is extr...

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 22nd, 2014

This is a bold, rich Assam, malty, strong flavored without being overly harsh. Perhaps slightly less edgy than average for an Assam of this strength, and this could be either an asset or a downside, depending on what you are looking for.

I find this tea is able to be brewed with more leaf than I normally use for an...

This tea was decent. I enjoyed its nice cinnamon flavor and smell. It wasn't too strong because I brewed it for a short time. I prefer my spicey teas to be subtle! I assume the longer suggested brew time would yield a stronger tea.

Jan. 13th, 2014

Numi Aged Earl Grey Assam- Now we're talkin' tea! Hands down, this is my all around absolute favorite tea. The moment you open a packet, the powerful, heady aroma of bergamot saturates the senses. It is noticeably fresh, not highly perfumed like most other offerings, for they use real Bergamot, not "natural flavorin...

Jan. 7th, 2014

I am enjoying the Organic Assam from 2 leaves (and a bud) - it brews up strong but not bitter - very "clean" tasting and great for breakfast in Winter. Delicious and easy to drink.

As with all the teabags from 2 Leaves - it is over priced.

Dec. 13th, 2013

I have to start off by saying that Numi is probably the first tea bag I ever had that really "wowed" me. I have tried many of their teas and if I see their name, I feel that it is going to be quality. So, that is why I got this Chai. I have been on a Chai kick, with the colder weather. This Chai is good. Not great...

Oct. 25th, 2013

I found this tea interesting in that it is in the English Breakfast style, but is made from pure Assam. The tea bag looks unimpressive--it's just a simple tea bag filled with very finely broken tea dust or fannings.

The brewed cup is not bad though. It's a little darker in color than a typical English Breakfast, w...

Oct. 18th, 2013

A pleasant and drinkable, but somewhat uninteresting spiced tea or masala chai in a tea bag.

Brews a rich reddish brown color. Bold but clean flavor...moderately bitter and not very astringent.

I definitely notice clove as the dominant aroma. There's not much cinnamon, and I like that, as many commercial chai b...

The aroma is lovely, you can certainly tell it is an Assam from the first sniff! Rich and malty. I was however, surprised by the amount of dust in the tea wrapper and then in my tea, I have not run into that before with this company's Assam.

The taste is quite good! Malty, rich, subtly sweet, and not at all bitter....

The aroma of this tea is delightful! The smell is sweet and spicy, very rich with lots of clove.

Sadly the aroma and the taste did not match, I found the tea underwhelming. Still a nice clove taste but really that is it. I am sadly disappointed.

A very good, solid Assam. Wonderful aroma when brewed. Not the biggest flavoured nor the most malty Assam I have tried although it does have huge amounts of tannins. An enjoyable brew.

Strong, unique, and very afforable!

This was an interesting tea, and completely unlike any other Assam I've sampled. The tea it seemed most similar to, to me, was actually a Keemun from Arbor teas, that was also atypical for its style.

I recommend a brief infusion: it infuses quite fast, and I find it tastes bes...

This tea has a slightly smoky, sweet aroma. The tea is kind of dry tasting, but it has a crisp flavor. It's a bit bitter when I brew it strong enough. It tastes kind of like lapsang souching. I added cream and sugar.

This is quite simply, ambrosia. A truly sublime tea.

Without doubt, not just the best black tea I have tasted but the best tea itself, and the closest I have come yet to that Holy Grail of the perfect cup of tea. Lovely aroma and the flavour is perfectly balanced, strong, yet smooth, typical Assam maltiness but no b...

I was really impressed by the strength of this tea, especially since I was craving a coffee and given this as a substitute (no coffee on hand today!). While it wasn't as meaty as coffee, I found the brew to have a strong dark flavor that was nearly just as good. As usual, I'm equally impressed by the reasonable price...

Yet another high-quality loose-leaf tea from Ahmad, for a very reasonable price. I was surprised that Ahmad sells this alongside their Kalami Assam, which is a whole-leaf tea in a similar price range. This tea was very different, so I can understand how they'd carry both, but I didn't like it as much.

The cup has ...

I think I've found my breakfast tea, or in any case a certain kind of breakfast tea for a certain kind of mood. I think I've mentioned in other reviews that I tend to like my breakfast teas sweet, strong, and milky: my taste buds aren't so good at subtlety early in the morning.

The tea doesn't smell particularly str...
