Bombay Chai from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Blend

86 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 18th, 2020

I was a little uncertain what to expect here, since Murchie's teas generally are very good to excellent, but their bagged "Traditional Chai" offering was somewhat flat and disappointing. No worries..."Bombay Chai" lives up to the name, and is a worthy addition to the tea shelf on your pantry, especially if you like yo...

Half-litre pot at home, made from small, fine very dark brown Assam leaves and tiny pieces of cloves, cardamom, ginger and cinnamon. Pours nearly clear lightish copper brown (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of cinnamon and cloves, with touches of Assam. Bitter flavour of black tea, distinct with spic...

Since I like chais a lot in general, I thought I'd try this one on for fun and variety, after seeing it deeply discounted at a Sprouts. Maybe there's a good reason it was discounted a lot.

The dry-bag aroma is all cinnamon, and quite strongly so. The wet-bag aroma was almost all cinnamon, not quite as strong, but ...

Half-litre pot at home, made from small, curly black and dark brown leaves of black tea, with small pieces of dried ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, cloves and cardamom. Pours slightly hazy darkish amber (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of cinnamon and caramel, with mild notes of vanilla and black tea...

Dec. 16th, 2019

For a bagged tea, this isn't bad. It diffuses quickly and has a pleasantly strong aroma and flavor. The cinnamon is at a good intensity for me and it blends well with the black tea. This will be part of my collection of bagged teas at work from now on.

Although good, and a decent value for the currency-adjusted price, this tea fell slightly off expectations for a company that usually yields outstanding quality. Maybe the loose-leaf version is better, and the latter certainly smelled amazing in their Victoria store.

The dry-bag smell was curiously weak in cinnamon...

Jun. 13th, 2019

I love chai, so I tried Chai Love. It was one of the least chai-like of chais I've had, but yet, still strangely satisfying and tasty. It also had perhaps the greatest aromatic discrepancy I've encountered between dry-leaf, in-cup and wet-leaf scents.

The dry leaf is the most truly chai-like sensation (smell or t...

Being a sucker for all kinds of strong and/or spicy food and drink, I've grown quite fond of good chais, in all their wonderful variety of formulations. As such, my default will be to rate them fairly well unless they prove unfit for human consumption. This rates well. It's not up to par with most loose chais I've h...

This isn't the best chai I've had but it's tolerable and if someone made it for me I would drink it again. I had mine without milk but I have a feeling it would be better with milk. On the plus side it's a fairly easy to find and it's affordable, I saw it being sold for $3.29 for 20 teabags. If you're a bigger fan of c...

Since we're careening headfirst into the holidays, and folks are warming up their days with spicy and chai teas, I hope this and my other reviews of them will prove helpful. This is a Safeway store brand—relatively inexpensive as organic bagged teas go. After being resoundingly disappointed by their peppermint offe...

If this were all Christmastime had to offer, I'd say, fast-forward to the new year. Fortunately, it's not. "Christmas Tea" is one of the better Twinings black teas I've tried, but...
1. That's not saying much, and
2. It's a very poor approximation of Bigelow's much richer, more-flavorful Constant Comment blend. ...

While I normally love chai, this one fell short in my book. I've read reviews from others who say they found it to be a predominantly vanilla flavor with a touch of chai spice... I disagree. To me, the aroma seems watered down, and the flavor is almost nutty. I hardly taste the chai at all, but it's more reminiscent of...

To date, I’ve never found a chai I didn’t like, and this one was no different. Most chai is smooth, but this one seemed to go above and beyond; it was like drinking silk. It’s a wonderful blend of a bright flavor with touches of cinnamon and ginger. Cinnamon and chai isn’t a new idea, but the ginger was a wel...

This is on the short list for my favorite chai (at least for now). It has a warm, earthy flavor with just a bit of bite to it. It's definitely best served warm, or at least lukewarm. The aroma doesn't stand out in any significant way, but the flavor is excellent.

This is an absolutely outstanding tea, and I don't wield such platitudes frivolously. Opening the jar unleashes a powerful, creamy blast of chai aroma, which was mouth-watering for me in anticipation of the taste. Sometimes I open it just to take a whiff; this stuff would make an excellent Christmastime potpourri if ...

A good masala chai that tasted more like a traditional Indian spiced tea than a modern flavored tea.

This was passed on to me through a friend of my family. I've been wanting to try Zhi tea for a while. This probably isn't the type of tea I'd pick though if given a choice -- I prefer pure teas. That said, this te...

"Warming" is indeed the best word to describe this tea. It smells like baked goods: what comes to mind is Finnish christmas cookie dough. I can clearly taste the anise and the licorice, the cinnamon too, but I'm not sure about the sage, honeybush and orange. Actually, this tea tastes like anise and licorice but not tha...

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 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...

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 ...
