Love this tea - although I prefer waking to coffee, happy with this tea also, and its great in the afternoon. Bought this in England, though I'm told its available for a premium at some speciality stores. Great with toast and marmalade or banana bread. Already looking forward to next cup.

In London, and visited Harrods so had to buy something. The English Afternoon tea is nice and comes in a cute Harrods tea can. A bit pricey due to strong GBPound versus Canadian$. A mild aroma and light taste, its an ok brew to serve for high tea with scones.

We were in London, at Harrods, so had to buy something. The English Breakfast tea is decent and comes in a nice tea can. Overpriced by our standards (due to strong GBPound). But other than the novelty of Harrods, for a good cuppa I'm happy with many of the Taylors of Harrogate brands.

Nice aroma, but a delicate tea, if you add a bit too much water. And as mentioned by earlier reviewer, loses that flavour if not kept sealed.

Sleepytime® Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings

I love this tea mainly because my baby daughter called it Sleepy-tite. We still call it Sleepy-tite even though she is a teen/almost adult now. Nice caffeine-free night drink.
My only peeve is 2 stores we went to (Meijers and Walmart) had variations of this with other flavors (raspberry..yech), but not the original on...

Not a great chai - too much chicory and cinnamon I think we discarded the box after consuming maybe half the tea bags (rarely finishing a cup of tea). Ingredients just did not taste authentic - who puts chicory in tea!
So many better tasting, less expensive chais' out there.

My daughter tried this at a restaurant and told her mother how much she liked it. So my wife picked up 5 boxes - that was 3 years ago. We gave away a couple of boxes to someone who thought they'd like it, but still have 2 boxes left. Very difficult to drink (the cinnamon is overpowering) even when I desperately need a...

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 20th, 2014

This is a wonderful caffeine free alternate to overly sugary hot chocolate.
The red peppercorns, cardamom and ginger give this rooibos chai its character. To enhance the flavor, I take out a few of the whole cardamom and pepper seeds and crush them before adding back to the mixture. We add a bit of honey which makes...

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...

Very nice chai - well balanced.

good, basic tea - once in a while that's what you want, something not fancy. It blends well to make a chai.

Why even call this a tea... call it unsatisfying flavoured water, but not tea?
A waste of effort.

OK in a pinch, but way too cinnamony (and I'm not sure its not natural flavor).
Expect a bit better from Twinnings.

pretty bland in terms of aroma and taste (is that synonymous with Irish?), but good for a change once in a while.

OK - decent EG, light in terms of flavor and caffeine level. I think Tazo EG is far better.
I usually get a box of 100 or 144 from Costco, so decent value.

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.
