Finally, an herbal chai tea! I have always loved chai tea, but not the black tea leaves. This tea is the best of both worlds. the flavor is awesome. Its a little too strong for me, so I usually cut the amount by 1/3rd. I received a sample of the tea bags after I purchased the full leaf, and I think I like the bags better. I found that my brew was not a strong and I am also able to carry it to work easier. I think I will purchase this in the bags next time, but this is a wonderful tea. It's great with almond milk (or even eggnog flavored almond milk) and agave.

My favorite caffeine free tea

I am removing caffeine from my diet and I bought a small amount of the loose tea to try. It more than surpassed my expectations of a herbal tea. I used a measured tablespoon in a tea bag with 14 ozs. of hot water and steeped for 6 minutes. It is a full bodied, hardy, flavorful tea. I've been converted - no more coffee for me!

I am a chai fiend, and this is like chai tea without the tea, and extra cardamom. Did I mention I'm in love with cardamom? Very flavourful, and a pick-me-up without any caffeine. Great tea!

This is my go-to tea for anytime of the day or night. I loved it so much, I got it for my friends for Christmas, and they love it too! At home, the aroma of the spices is relaxing and welcoming. At work, I keep the tea bag version for an afternoon pick-me-up. Also, the full leaf can be re-infused a few times, so what a bargain!

I am a fan of both cardamom and cinnamon as well as Chai teas. This blend is perfectly balanced between the cinnamon and cardamom. Smooth taste. I love it with cream and honey, but it equally great plain or iced. A staple in my tea cache.

It has a delicious spicy sweet-ish taste. Best flavor comes for the last few sips in the pot. Also, you don't need honey with this tea. I bet you'll love it.

I first tried this tea from a sample sent in one of your catalogs. I ordered the full-leaf and just love it. It makes a lovely "bedtime" tea to sip before retiring. The fragrance is soothing and reminds me of spice cake and the taste is smooth and refreshing. I would recommend this to anyone fond of old fashioned spicy things.

Surprising unique blend

I am so happy I received a sample Teabag with my catalogue, because I never would have tried this tea. Usually certain ingrediants like Cinnamon, ginger, mint etc overpower the flavor. But this is a very careful blend with each spice in perfect proportion. I truly love the unique flavor. I used to put cardamon in my coffee or cookies. I am delighted to meet it in a wonderful new tea.

I mistakenly stored this in an unlabeled container a while ago, and forgot what it was. Surmising that it was either a spice mix or tea, I decided to grind it and see what it tasted like. It is just fabulous to sprinkle on a lamb roast, or add to a stew. Then brew a pot a drink it too!

Wonderful scent, even better taste!

I happened upon this tea just recently while travelling in the U.S. Fell in LOVE with it. I had never had full leaf loose herbs before so it was a new experience. I love this tea. Sometimes I take the lid of the can just to look at how pretty it is and to smell it's wonderful aroma..... hooked!

I received my order today and immediately prepared a cup of the tea and I must say that it is heavenly. It is just spicy enough and all the special, individual notes of each of the spices come through but one does not overpower the other. I am placing an order for more!

Forget waiting till the holidays and hoping you can find a good herb and spice blend to make mulled cider. This is absolutely wonderful made with apple cider or apple juice. You will never want to use anything else again. I pour a little of the apple juice out, put my tea into the bottle and put it in the fridge. Anytime I want hot spiced cider I pour it into a cup and microwave it. I am not going to try to tell you any measurements, there are 3 adults in the house and we all like different amounts in our juice. Just play around with it till your happy.

I bought this tea while trying various herbal teas that I could drink later at night. Upon opening the taster tin, both the bright colors of the ingredients and the wonderful smell are both immediately noticeable. I haven't tried with milk or iced, only hot so far. The flavor is well-balanced with a tiny hint of spice from the red peppercorns. It's a great cold weather herbal tea. I will be ordering a full tin of this for sure!

Sometimes I open the tin just to experience the fragrance! It is too bad this tea does not come in a glass jar because it is visually beautiful as well as delicious. If you have some teas that are not your favorites, add a teaspoon of this to enliven them. This should definitely be listed along with the other holiday teas.

I bought this originally because I was looking for a way to make chai at home. This not just fills the bill, it exceeds all hopes and expectations. A full-bodied totally herbal tea great with milk, sugar or nothing added. Wonderful hot, terrific iced and lovely at room temperature. People ask for it whenever they visit. This is truly an amazing tea accomplishment!

Thank you for the mix of flavors that definitely is unique!

I am hardly an expert with tea, but this was recommended to me when I was shopping in specialty store near my home. I was reluctant to try a loose leaf tea, but the shopkeeper convinced me to try it, since I was so intrigued by the sound of it. I'm not one for very fruity teas (though I do like lemon and orange flavors) and liked the idea of these spices. I loved it and am so happy she convinced me to give it a go. I like many of your other flavors but this one, for me at least, is so unique to anything else I've tried. Thanks.

If you use .75 of a measure of Cardamon Cinnamon and .50 of just plane Red Rooibos, you will have a great combination. They tend to bring out the flavor of each other.

This is one of my favorite spiced teas for colder weather. I especially like it because it is herbal and naturally decaf. The flavors remind one of spiced cider but without the apple flavor. This tea is best with milk and a bit of sweetener, but great by itself as well. I bought the refill bag of loose tea to fill up my tin. Very happy to have found the refill bag sold by RoT. :)
