A very soothing chai that I already can't wait to finish so I can pick up some more. I first tried it with honey but prefer it plain because of the unique flavors it has. This tea is fantastically herbal aroma balancing cinnamon, cardamom, and fresh, crisp basil. It carries a strong scent in the bag and in the cup but in a good way that doesn't overpower the palate. Do not skip over this tea!

Great chai flavor

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body, High Quality.

Best Served : Anytime.

I really like the chai flavor of this tea. It's not too heavy on the cinnamon flavor; it seems very balanced. The strongest flavor I taste is cardamom but it's not overpowering. I think the fact that this is a green tea based chai helps it be more mellow. It's very flavorful but still subtle and I can see this becoming a favorite.

Decent plain, excellent with honey and lemon

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Afternoon.

When I get a new tea, I usually drink it plain just to get an idea of what it really tastes like before adding condiments. This one didn't jump out at me at first taste; but I just brewed another cup and added honey and lemon as the package says and it is extremely tasty. It wasn't even a lot of either condiment but it changed the whole flavor profile and brought it to another level for me.

Tulsi Green Chai

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Typically, I am usually a black chai tea person, however, I enjoyed the flavor of this blend. It is quite light and it does not have the normal spices that I imagine when drinking a chai tea. The Basil leaves give the tea a nice refreshing taste. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

Not your traditional chai. The holy basil is very prominent and has wonderful soothing qualities. This is one of my go-to teas for when I need something calming but not sleep-inducing.

Very nice chai tea

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body, Unique Flavor Profile.

An interesting, rich, complex, and soothing tea. Certainly very drinkable. The smell is very distinctly herbal and might at first seem unpleasant, that impression passed rather quickly for me though.

Good, but quite a strong aroma.

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Strong.

The TV itself is quite delicious, but not all that strong. However, the aroma was quite surprising to me. I'm not usually a chai drinker and I don't add anything to my tea or coffee, such as sugar or milk. I prefer the taste of strait tea. Overall, this was quite an enjoyable tea one I got used to the aroma.

An interesting blend

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

This tea has a much finer dry blend than the other two I recieved and has a strong, herbal scent. After being steeped, the color is of a dark greenish/brown and smells faintly of vanilla. The flavors hover teasingly on the edge between the lightness of a green and the boldness of a chai.

Smooth and refreshing

Best Served : Anytime.

I love Chai tea and this one is easily my favorite. It has all of the energy that I need from the tea aspect of the product, and I get the stomach soothing qualities of Tulsi. I can drink this tea anytime during the day, but the best time to consume it in my opinion is just after a large meal. I can help ease any digesti

It's great to have this tea during rains. Had a bad throat and was feeling weak at work recently due to changes in season. Tried this tea and it was effective instantly. Other colleagues appreciated likewise.

This is some good green tea. The addition of the holy basil is very noticeable and won't be everyone's cup of tea, but well worth a sample. It tastes like it is doing you some good too!

This is a surprisingly wonderful tea. The basil puts this tea over the top, I love basil so I maybe partial. A cup with nothing added was amazing, but the addition of honey was amazing and wow!! This tea will be my Tea Cabinet staple. It is a must buy and try.

This is just a wonderful cup of tea. It is very light and had a wonderfully surprising hint of basil which I found very comforting. Not what I would have expected in a chai so so yummy.

The right tea for the right weather(it's winter now). And this is the healthy green tea that you should opt for. The flavor is mild not too over powering but just right. And makes you feel like having another cup when once you had it. Love the freshness and lingering taste of it.

Delicious and balanced

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime, Morning.

I have bought many chai over the years: tea blends/mixes, liquid versions, etc. This is one of the finest. It is not heavily spiced or herbed as some can be, and having a green tea base rather than an Assam or other heavy black tea, it is mild in those respects. Yet, the favor is even, very well-balanced, and calming, if one can say such about a flavor. I am working my way through the various chai offered here at Teabox, and this is without a doubt my favorite. The Tulsi imparts a very unique and satisfying flavor. It is a delicious tea and a wonderful experience.

This is the first green chai I have ever tasted and it is delicious. The aromas include honey, ginger and sweet basil. The flavour is fresh and zingy with a long, soft, gingery aftertaste. I had a cold last week and drank this tea every night. It was lovely and soothing. Actually I am quite sure that it helped to get rid of the cold more quickly.
