Chai spices + oolong tea = awesome!

This is unique because it's chai but with an oolong base. The oolong is very fresh and has a distinct taste, and it works perfectly with the chai spices. It's also great because you can get multiple steeps from it :) It's a unique combination and great for when you want something a little different. Great spicy chai flavour!

That's What I Like!

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

The first impression of the tea is a lovely full mix of dry leaves and spices, and the smell is wonderful. I really like a tea with a hint of cinnamon. This tea is a lighter color after a five minute steep. As with most teas, the aroma of the brewed tea is not as strong as that of the tea in its dried state. Overall, this is a very enjoyable tea and I loved wrapping my hands around the mug and inhaling the bliss. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

A delicious chai, no matter how you prepare it

I tried this one plain, then with cream and sugar. It is delicious no matter how you take your chai. Reviewed as part of the Teabox subscription program.

Delicious, spicy flavor that I love about chai. I truly love this tea and will consider buying some more when I run out. Initially I was upset that received 3 of the same kind of teas but after having a cup I am estatic. It smells amazing and I truly enjoy making this tea and drinking it.

Very good, but needs a lot to make a tasteful cup

So I love the taste of this tea, I was very pleased. However, it took way more teaspoons to be flavorful than the other two I was also sent. I used the entire sample bag after just two cups. I'm hoping the teas I will be sent in the future will last me enough to get through the month, so I doubt this would. Has a nice spice to it!

A great relaxation tea.

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma.

This tea is a great to wind down with at the end of the day. It has a great spicy texture and is a deep red color when its done brewing. I like the mixture of different spices that add up to a completely unique taste. I have tried this tea a few different times already and I like it more and more each time.

A sensory delight!

I received this tea as a free sample and was curious at once, for it was not a black/CTC chai blend, but an oolong chai blend - interesting indeed! Upon opening the pack, ones senses are at once treated to an amazing medley of warm spicy notes - aromas of warm cloves, sweet cardamom and calming cinnamon. India in a wh at a relatively higher temperature and longer duration - yet no bitterness whatsoever! With a little bit of sugar, it tasted every bit as delightful as it smelled.

Yummy......

Opening the package the aroma spices was very pleasant and balanced. Tea has a beautiful dark red color. The body has a weighty thickness on the palate. This is a define robust or full body tea in flavor and aroma. Wonderful with a bit honey, and even better if you add a touch of cream...Yummy. This a a great morning and afternoon tea.

Very light flavor

This full-leaf chai blend has a lovely aroma and a look of high quality, but I personally found the flavor to be too weak for my taste. It didn't hold up to resteeping, either. If you are a fan of big, bold chai flavor you might want to skip this one.

This tea is wonderful! It has complex flavors but blends together well. Natural honey and/or scotch added makes a great 'hot toddy."

This similar tea is sold in a mall store and they want the same amount of money for 1/3 the amount. Good pricing and the quality is good. We make it & sometimes add 1/2 teaspoon of scotch. Taste is great!

Very light chai tea

Compared to the masalas, this tea is very light in comparison, much more delicate. I found that steeping it for the recommended amount of time was not enough, or I needed more tea than suggested.
