This is a nice blend, very strongly spicy to give you a lift but without the caffeine. I think it’s pretty nicely balanced and has no artificial taste to it. No “softness” to the flavor, it smacks you in the face. A lot of chais disappoint me by tasting weak or watery – this one doesn’t in the slightest and has good body to it. However, I personally can’t stand it, as it has a distinct anise flavor. It isn’t too strong, and if you like anise, it’s kind of a nice twist on the usual cinnamon, etc. I just happen to loathe anise, so…

Flavors: Anise, Clove, Pepper

Wife, mom of 2 crazy young kids (and 3 cats, if they count). Used to be a professional tree hugger, now I stay at home hobbit-like and teach the kids to love the trees. Also hobbit-like, I love reading, tea, second breakfasts, cooking and food in general, and gardens. (I can’t really say I love gardening since where I live, it’s too dratted hot for too much of the year to actually do it.) I am always on the search for a good flavored decaf black tea. Suggestions are more than welcome!

I tend to like my teas strong, so I use more than most people when I brew. Don’t be put off a tea because I say I used 4 tsp to brew 12 oz or something – that’s just me.

PS – Unlike a hobbit, my toes are not furry. I just feel the need to clarify.
