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.

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...

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...

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...

I quite enjoyed this tea. The most notable spice in the smell and flavor is cardamom, but it isn't overpowering. I can also detect the undertones of apple that Alex mentioned.

For me, this tea worked both straight and with milk. Not my all time favorite, but a decent chai. Works well with food, too. Though progressi...

This chai smells so good ... like cloves and cinnamon, or spiced apple cider. It tastes a little weak, and not really like it smells, but it's still enjoyable.

Interesting tea. The spice combination isn't my favorite, but it isn't bad. I think the cardamom is a little too strong relative to the other flavors. I definitely think this is one to drink with milk, in which case it could be exactly what you're craving when the mood strikes you. The black tea works well and isn't at...

Based on the deliciously spicy dry aroma I was very excited to try this tea. Unfortunately, the flavor was much more flat, weak, and less interesting. How unfortunate.

On the plus side, it makes for a solid latte. So if you like your tea with milk and perhaps a bit of sugar, this may well be a favorite cup for you. ...

The aroma of the tea is expectantly spicy, deliciously so, I would go as far as mouth-wateringly so, but it is no secret that I go gaga for spices. The Assam is rich and malty with notes of molasses as well, it is quite sweet, also the spices are strong but well balanced. None of this cinnamon elbowing its way to the f...

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.

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.

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...

A sample from the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival. After being impressid with this company's English Breakfast, I was eager to try this one. It's enjoyable, but nothing like what I expected. I've tried this several times and can't shake the impression that it tastes and smells strongly of apples, particularly, ...

This tea has a cinnamon flavor that's kind of overpowering. I can still taste the other flavors, and it tastes okay. Maybe a cinnamon enthusiast would like it better. I added cream and sugar.

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 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.

I thought that this tea had a really nice aroma to its dried leaf, which had strong spicy tones. The brew wasn't as fragrant, but I still enjoyed its taste. This tea wasn't anything spectacular, but it wasn't all bad. I thought it could have had a stronger flavor, which the dried leaf suggested. The price seemed reas...

I've had this tea both on it's own and with the addition of milk an honey, and have liked it both ways. It smells good but not amazing, and tastes better than it smells. I like the fact that the tea can be brewed strongly without tasting bitter. It's a really good price for the quality of the tea.

A good masala chai blend, but not among the best I've tried.

This tea looks to contain a nice blend of dry spices. I see a lot of cardamom pods, which is a good sign.

I thought the base tea was a little on the weak side. In spite of being broken into small pieces, it didn't seem to impart much strength to the c...

I love this tea! It has a perfect blend of spices, and the base tea is strong enough. By the look of it, it appears to be heavy on cardamom. I added cream and sugar.

The dry leaf smells a bit like potpourri, and a bit like a regular Masala chai.

Upon brewing, this tea is quite peppery and almost prickly on the palate. The brewed cup is not as floral-smelling as the leaf. Aroma is complex and hard to describe: I definitely notice the clove, but the other aromas seem to blend to...

This tea smells kind of like mulled cider. The flavor is a little weird with the flowers. I don't usually like floral teas. It took 8 minutes for me to brew it strong enough. I added cream and sugar.

I really liked the smell of this tea, the spices were strong, especially the cloves. Unfortunately, the taste didn't match. I thought the tea itself was flavorless in comparison to it's rich aroma.
