Not so spicy February 28, 2015


New York, NY

I had purchased this tea because I read others writing about the strong spice flavor of this tea. After having drank it 4 times already (steeped to perfection) I can say that this isn't the case. The spice is rather light, and in no way overpowers the rooibos flavor. If you like a heavy Chai flavor, this isn't necessarily for you.

taste with no caffeine and no sugar July 20, 2014


Mountlake Terrace, WA

Love this tea cold! It has taste and no sugar -- save the calories for something else, and no caffeine -- can drink it anytime of day.

I am well pleased with the flavor of this delightful tea. I particularly pleased with the fact that when fully brewed, there is no need to add sugar or honey for sweetness.

Excellent flavor/spice heat combo December 18, 2013

I was looking for a late night tea when I am craving a cup of tea, but want no caffeine. I thought I would try a chai, and was surprised at how absolutely wonderful the flavor of it is. There is also a small amount of "heat" to it, due to the pepper, but it is exactly right for me. This has become my very favorite tea. I ordered my second tin of loose leaf, and three other tins as Christmas gifts for my tea-loving sister-in-law and daughter-in-laws.

Not my cuppa September 14, 2012


North Haven, CT

I agree with the other reviewer who said it was a bit too spicy - not sure what it was that I didn't like (nutmeg? cardamom?) but I'm glad I only sprang for a trial size. The can is cute, though.

Yummy and Spicy August 31, 2012


Princeton, NJ

Yummy and spicy. Great with a bit of rock sugar and almond milk. VERY peppery so if you don't like that kind of spice, try the Rainforest Tea-it's very similar but lacks the zing.

Great Partner August 23, 2012


Overland Park, KS

This is a great partner to the Merchant's Green Chai. I mix two parts green chai to one part red chai, and it is delicious!!

a little much at first, but good till the end April 17, 2012



My friend got this for me for my birthday along with a tea press mug, and at first I didn't know how to use it, or drink it. I like tea, but I don't like coffee. Something just doesn't taste as good about coffee. But when I tried this, it was shocking how powerful it was! It is spicy, but it is not intollerable. The flavor is amazing when brewed at about 7-8 minutes. I have gotten used to it within the last day or so, and I now LOVE it. It is very relaxing and I for a girl who likes spice, but also love sweetness, drinking this hot any time of the day hits the spot! WONDERFUL! :D

Good but VERY spicy January 25, 2012


San Francisco, CA

Good flavor but very very spicy, almost too spicy, leaving a slow burn like after taste in my mouth and stomach...thank goodness they offer the trial tester size, if unsure this size is your best bet!!

One of the best chai teas I've tasted. I'm hooked. I switch to this one in the evenings and drink the black chai through the first 1/2 of the day. Great flavor.
