I actually ordered this by accident. I tried it and loved it. I steep it, then add 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder. The black pepper sets of the turmeric both in flavor and in health benefits.

Interesting taste of the Chai Tea

Have tried the Chai Tea Latte (company name omitted) that fell interested in this tea with a little spicy - just didn't like it too sweet. So I bought this Chai-full leaf for brewing without adding any milk or sugar and it still tasted good.

Smells and tastes great!

High quality, not dusty, and not full of pieces you can't identify. I would caution to stick with the proper steeping time as it has a licorice taste when you let it steep too long.

I have to agree with other people that pepper is the strongest note in this tea blend. I made it for the first time yesterday and noted the cup tasted a little weak. So for my next cup, I brewed the tea longer - it was stronger tasting, but so was the taste of pepper! I like a nice kick to a cup of chai tea but I won't be reordering this blend.

When I make chai I don't just steep it. I boil it like they do in Indian restaurants. This turns out the best chai that I have experienced. For those who want to try, here are the proportions (a thick bottomed pot is better): 2 cups whole milk, 2 cups water, just under 1/4 cup tea. Bring to a boil slowly (scalded burnt milk is nasty) once you reach a boil let it simmer for 10 more minutes. Add the same amount of sugar as tea. Strain and enjoy. Sometimes I add a bit of water (up to half a cup) if it's too strong. If there are left overs I store in a glass jar, and reheat the next day. It takes around 25 minutes total, but everyone who tries it is WOWED!

This chai tea was just spicy enough and so very flavorful! I love it! Some chai teas are tooooo spicy but this one lets all the spices have their own spotlight ... nothing is overpowering.

I love the pepper. It leaves a nice little "kicker" in the back of your throat without overpowering the other spices. The other spices are nicely balanced.

Pepper flavor is too much!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

The Best!

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!
