So it has a good strong flavor, i can definitely taste the cloves and pepper, this would be perfect for a cold snowy day, good for holiday season. Very comforting, great aroma, great flavor. Very nice.
Daughter loves this tea. Called it amazing.
my perfect cup of tea. perfect balance of spice and oolong flavor. love it
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.
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.
