Review of Oprah Chai Herbal Blend

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 (or that fireball flavored whiskey) you might like this one, but it's not something I want in tea. The aroma is flat; I barely notice anything other than the fake cinnamon smell.

Upon drinking, the taste and mouthfeel is also a lot like those candies. If I search very hard, I can detect a hint of clove, perhaps, if my mind isn't tricking me.

Completely undrinkable. I only had a few sips. I returned it and had them pour it out. The staff in the Starbucks where I bought this were super sweet and gave me a different tea to replace it (which was delightful--thankfully most of the Teavana teas that replaced the Tazo ones are an improvement and are quite good in quality).

I recommend steering clear of this one...unless, that is, you love that fake cinnamon flavor (I know some people are all about this!), in which case, go for it!

Huh, I just realized I may have messed up with my rating of this tea. I would've sworn I drank the regular chai, not the herbal version. I'll have to try both again and rate them.
