Our Review
To help you make the delightful Indian beverage of Chai, we created this blend. It is strong and definitely spicy, although we do not add the peppers found in many Indian Chai recipes. Just add the milk and sugar you think is correct. It may also be drunk on its own.
Dry Leaves The blend contains Indian Black Tea, cardamom seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and natural cardamom and vanilla flavors.
Liquor The liquor is medium to dark brown.
Aroma The spice of nutmeg and cardamom come through.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This tea is very bold and has a strong body.
Flavors Chai tastes of a mixture of strong spices and makes delicious chai tea.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Chai

We have created a new blend similar to our Indian Spice, but a bit spicier and with a hint of natural vanilla flavor. The blend contains Indian Black Tea, cardamom seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and natural cardamom and vanilla flavors.

Disappointing
Average Review:

Please please please bring back Indian Spice!!! This blend is not even close! Wil not be purchasing this again and I gave it a fair shot. Used. All of a 1lb bag.

Wonderful flavors, but I miss the peppery bite!
Average Review:

I really enjoy the complex, spicy flavors of this chai but I must admit that I do miss that slight tingly burn of black pepper and ginger I've experienced with other chais (although the flavor of those other chais do not compare to this one). After brewing this tea haven't experienced any bitterness at all, perhaps my tastes are different or I'm brewing a less concentrated tea. The cardamom and nutmeg are the first ones to hit my palate, then the cloves, cinnamon with the vanilla rounding out the finish. On occasion I've added ground black pepper into the loose tea to get some of that missing bite, a bit of a cheater's hack, but it works! I haven't tried the old formula, but if it was peppery I imagine it must have been amazing, nevertheless I still think this is a very good chai and I haven't found any to top it that I can find commercially.

Bitter tasteless tea
Average Review:

This is no chai tea!! I don't know what it is. I brew my own Indian tea as I have seen my aunts and grandmas do it and the last blend totally replaced that lengthy process of adding each spice one by one. I picked this up and made the mistake of buying a 1lb bag but wow what a weird taste profile. I ended up mixing it with some Brooke Bond - your typical Indian department store tea to make the blend palatable. Almost done with it. Will probably throw the last bit out but pass on it folks. It's a waste.
