There’s no better way to warm up a chilly winter day than a hot cup of chai. The combo of rich black tea and exotic spice is like a cup of pure comfort. And this spicy black tea blend turns up the heat even more with a sweet and creamy hint of vanilla. It’s as cozy as a teddy bear wearing a scarf. In front of a roaring fire. While cuddling with a puppy. Try it with milk and sugar for a warming treat that’ll have you wishing for snow.

Had this one made for me in store today as a latte; it’s always a little bit weird having others make my tea for me – that lost bit of control in doing my own preparation actually gives me a small bit of anxiety. Does anyone else feel that?
The tea guide who made it for me did it perfectly though; and I enjoyed the softer spices of this Chai blend, and the sweetness of the vanilla. I struggled a lot to get over the intense licorice root in the finish – it’s not an ingredient I’m very fond of myself, and I forgot just how prominent it is in this blend. Still, for a very rainy day having that warm cup of Chai was a nice treat/pick me up. Licorice root and all.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
Pretty good for a work tea, though I feel like I could have used 2 teaspoons instead of a tablespoon and gotten a similar flavor. The sweetness from the licorice is consistent and hangs around, though not in an unpleasant way. The cinnamon and vanilla flavors, however, are more inconsistent. Though, I did have a few cups of this that tasted like cinnamon rolls gooey from the oven … That was kind of spectacular.
I like vanilla. I like chai. I like them together. But I don’t like licorice. It’s just not right and it hits the back of your throat in a weird way… and it makes my cheeks feel weird.
Either way… I like the idea of this tea, but the licorice makes me dislike it so much. I’m sure if I like licorice, then I wouldn’t mind this tea but since I don’t, I don’t like this one at all. I should have known… Anyways, I’ve given the tiny bit left to my aunt. I know she’ll enjoy it or one of her girls will.
