Great tea, just not sure I was given the correct quantity

I should clarify by saying I greatly enjoyed the tea. Unfortunately, either it is misleading marketing, or, more likely, I got the wrong amount, because there's no way I could've made anywhere near the number of cups that the advertisement boasts. Unless I was expected to reuse the tea ten to twelve times of course.That being said the tea is very good, although I may have to try the double spiced Chai next.I may try and order some more again soon - if in fact the amount I received was just a shipping snafu I'll update my review accordingly.

The best chai

I'm very picky when it comes to chai. Usually, the taste is overpowering and too perfumed. This is chai as it should be -- bright, balanced, adroitly spiced without being overpowered. It is brisk yet subtle. I love it and will reorder it frequently.

Quite good, but didn't meet my high expectations

I received this tea as a gift in a fancy box that includes a trio of different Chai teas. I'm sure it was chosen because Oprah selected this tea for her list of "Favorite Things" in 2018.

This is the first tea I've tasted from the trio. It tastes like a high-quality Chai tea from India, similar to what I would expect from a fine dining Indian restaurant. The flavors are classic and well balanced, and the tannins and briskness are right-on.

The ingredients list Oolong tea, but I can't identify anything significantly different from other Assam and Darjeeling based black Chai teas I've had.

For a tea of this quality and purported freshness, after 2 brewings I expected to see more whole unfurled leaves and a lot less tea-leaf-dust in the bottom of my teapot. It also didn't come out as strong as I expected, I ended up using more leaves than I normally would.

Considering the gorgeous box, and the fact that Oprah selected this as the best tea for 2018, I maybe had unreasonably high expectations. This tea is a fine and capable Chai tea, but it didn't wow me any more than other capable Chai teas I've had.

Authentic and Amazing

I was taught several years ago all the spices I needed to make an authentic and amazing cup of Chai tea. But you don't just happen to have those spices on hand, this tea takes all the work out for you and is just as amazing as I'd hope! Plus, I'm supporting a small business, makes the deal even sweeter!
