Traveler's Tea - Rich imperial spices are combined with Northern Indian tea leaves to create a hearty, flavorful cup. Deliciously full-bodied when prepared traditionally (simmered with water, milk & honey).
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.
Cinnamon, Assam and Darjeeling black tea, orange peel, ginger, coriander, cardamom seed, star anise, cloves and black pepper

A Favorite of Mine!

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

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.
Great on a cold morning

Consistently delicious. I have a pot of this tea whenever the temp dips. Serve with warm milk.

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.

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!

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!

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
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

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!
I LOVE THIS TEA

It's full of flavor. The best Chai I have tried so far
Rich and Delicious

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.

This tea is fantastic, rich with a bit of a kick. I've been enjoying it hot but I'd like to try it with milk and honey.
February 20, 2012
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!

Perfect blend of spice. Finishes a little pepper-like warmth. Love this tea!
Like the Three Bears

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.

An must have. It is a constant in my tea collection.

too spicy for me, but good flavor

One of the best chai teas I've tasted. I'm hooked.
