Spice Dragon Red Chai Herbal Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 16th, 2016

The tea bag smells overwhelmingly like cinnamon and nothing else.

Upon brewing, the cinnamon is not quite as domineering, but it's still the principle aroma. I can smell the clove, but it's a struggle to notice the base rooibos. This herbal tea is initially smooth and easy to drink; there's little bitterness or as...

Thank you Brytta for the sample!

The aroma of the dry leaf smells a lot like spiced apple cider.

Upon brewing, produces a cup that tastes a little bit like spiced apple cider, without the sugar--which is the kind of thing I'd normally like. The spice blend is very heavy on the cinnamon though, and clove is notic...

Rock Creek Red Chai from Capital Teas

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 9th, 2014

An intriguing blend, very different from the other two examples of Rooibos chai that I've tried, the ones from Culinary Teas and from Wegmans. The final of three Capital Teas samples that my parents were given as a gift, which they let me try. Excellent with milk, not so much without.

Dry leaf smells intensely of ...

Chai Rooibos from Culinary Teas

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 14th, 2013

This blend had an aroma and flavor just like I'd expect--like a typical masala chai but with the tea replaced with rooibos. The rooibos is strong and aromatic: when I brewed this (I used a short steeping, under 3 minutes), I could strongly smell the rooibos.

The description lists lemongrass and vanilla, but I didn'...

West Cape Chai (Rooibos Chai) from Rishi Tea

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 1st, 2013

Like most of Rishi's blends, I really liked this one.

For some reason, I expected this rooibos "chai" to be similar to Rishi's "regular" Masala Chai, a blend that I think is top notch and that nearly everyone I talk to seems to agree with me about. But this blend is completely different. I don't like it quite as m...

Rooibos Chai (Formerly Ruby Chai) from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 2nd, 2013

A good caffeine-free 'chai' which is completely dominated by clove, for better or for worse.

This tea had a rich, cloudy red color, much lighter red than most rooibos, suggesting that this blend actually does not contain a majority of rooibos.

The aroma is dominated by clove, and nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon ar...

Spiced Rooibos Ruby Red Chai from Trader Joe's

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 21st, 2011

Classic spiced chai flavor, but the aroma is mostly of spice without much rooibos. Similar to a masala chai made out of a lighter black tea. Aroma is dominantly of clove, with some cinnamon too. I would appreciate more cardamom presence as well as a stronger presence of the rooibos used as the base. The spice absol...
