This tea is pleasant, especially with a little milk added. (Note: I recommend warming the milk in the microwave briefly and pouring the hot water into it when making tea.) There’s a distinct but not entirely unpleasant sharpness to this tea that is improved with the milk, though it can still be enjoyed plain. The spiciness is pretty strong with this one.

Nice chai, although they could try it without the chicory.

Caveat: I like intense, smashmouth flavors, and this tea qualifies. Everything about it is an explosion of chai spices, from the room-filling aroma of a freshly opened box of bags to the robust balance of ingredients.

The only mark against TJ's chai for me was that the flavor carried an unexpectedly noticeable bitterness to the underpinning black tea and aftertaste--not enough to be a substantial turn-off, but more so than I would expect for a chai. Sweetening the solution, as I usually do anyway, helps. I'll recommend this tea wholeheartedly if a little bitterness doesn't bother you.
