Pepper flavor is too much! March 19, 2015


Augusta, GA

I wanted to love this tea, but I dont. The flavor of pepper overwhelms everything else in this blend. I've tried brewing it a little weaker and a little stronger, but the pepper still dominates. I like the heat of pepper, but I've had other chai teas that had th warmth while still letting the other flavors come through. I won't be buying this one again.

A Favorite of Mine! October 06, 2014


Peru, IN

When I first tasted this Chi Tea, I, too, thought it was too peppery, but then I tried using a smaller teaspoonful, and steeped it for a shorter time, and it was perfect!! It is now one of my fave teas!

Not that strong, but very flavorful February 02, 2014


Atlanta, GA

This was my first time trying Republic of Tea's chai, so I got the sampler tin, especially since I read the reviews about it's peppery-ness. I enjoyed the flavor, and the pepper added a nice kick. I would have preferred the tea to be a bit stronger; I'll have to add more leaves to each cup. Still, I will return to buy a larger amount.

Brunswick, GA

I take back what I said about this tea being too peppery. It has grown on me and now I am positively addicted to the taste. It is full bodied and the spice is a comforting blend of sweet and hot. I can't seem to get enough of this tea. I am reordering for a third time, this time the 200 cup bag because I have gone through my last two cans and can use them to refill.

Too spicy July 30, 2013

There's too much pepper in this tea. If it had less, I'm sure it would be perfect. Sadly, not buying this again.

Best I Can Find, Not Peppery Enough! June 20, 2013


San Diego, CA

I try every chai tea I come across. The best I've had is my mom's mix, but I need something that is more readily available. This is best when properly brewed at the right temperature for the right amount of time. I actually add pepper to it, though. I like my chai with some spice!

One of the BEST chai teas out there! April 12, 2013


Birkholz, WA

Awesome tea. I've tried many chai teas, and this one is by far, one of the best. I like to brew it strong and add a little creamer -- I'll even ADD ginger powder and a pinch of ground white pepper for extra spice.

Too much pepper March 24, 2013


Brunswick, GA

I have had several cups of the Chai Black and I must say it would be a great tea if they would reduce the amount of pepper. It is just too hot (no pun intended)to really enjoy. I love Chai tea but found this brand to be overboard with the pepper. Wan't order this one again. The other teas I tried were wonderful.

I love tea, especially chai. I've had Starbucks (Tazo), Teavana (several blends), Celestial Seasonings, Twinings, others I can't even remember. But this is my DEFINITE favorite.

Way too much pepper. I have drank Chai in India and Pakistan. Pepper should not the main spice in the Chai.

The BEST Chai, hands down February 02, 2013


Richmond, VA

This tea is amazing. I've been drinking it pretty regularly lately as Panera Bread offers it as an ice tea chai latte and it is absolutely delicious. So much so that I went to a Whole Foods, a coffee and tea shop downtown, and finally a Fresh Market trying to find it. It's a great tea for anyone to drink, especially those of us who love a good Starbucks latte as this, in my opinion, tastes better than any latte I've ever tried from Starbucks and as a latte lover I have had more than my fair share!

My husband can't live without this Chai! Try this hot with some honey and almond milk for a great dairy-free alternative.

Hilton Head Island,

Wonderful spice blend, the tea is excellent on many levels. Delicious with milk and honey but equally good by itself. It also makes an outstanding iced tea. A new favorite and good anytime.

The best tea i have ever ordered. I order it by the largest bulk possible once a month. I use it for iced and hot tea. I use the loose tea mix. I love this stuff! Thank you so much!

Like the Three Bears February 14, 2012


Missoula, MT

Now that you are scratching your over my allusion to the three famous bears from Goldlocks... this chai is neither too strong, nor too weak, but JUST right in strength. My kind of chai, and maybe yours, too.
