15 Tasting Notes
First I tried this chai on its own – the flavor profile didn’t seem right. Then I added some honey to find the sweet balance – it still wasn’t that great. When I mixed it with Italian Sweet Creme creamer and had it as a latte, it was okay. However, the flavor profile has a strong pepper taste – not the spice I want to be the strongest in my chai mix.

This is a spicy chai blend with a hint of espresso. On a cool autumn day, the spice really warms things up. I could see this being my go-to tea through the autumn and into the winter.
In the box, the bags have a peach and chamomile smell, with a hint of mint. Taste wise, I definitely pick up on the peach and chamomile. It’s a smooth, caffeine free tea. While I have about half of the box to go, I probably won’t get this again as there are other chamomile blends that I prefer for relaxing.
Flavors: Peach, Spearmint
Being sick these past two weeks, the Bigelow Cozy Chamomile in K-cup form (rather than tea bags) has been great for keeping my stomach and lungs settled down. I have other chamomiles that I like, but I’ll get back to those once I finish the box of Cozy Chamomile K-cups that my hubby picked up for me.
As much as I would love a pear tea, I’ve found the vanilla in this tea to be overpowering, masking much of the pear tea. I tasted only a slight hint of pear. I will continue my quest for a pear tea with a stronger pear taste.
A great balance of the flavors – not too sweet, not too vanilla-y… I love the sweet vanilla aroma. Whether it’s a stressful day or I’m just trying to recover from asthma issues, I’ve found this tea to be soothing and a perfect way to settle down
