I received this as a free sample with my last Harney and Sons order. I am very picky with my chai so I did not try this tea for a long time, not sure if I would like it. I am also not a huge fan of rooibos, but it depends on the blend.
The dry tea smells of chai spices- clove, cardamom, and cinnamon. There is also a medicinal rooibos smell overtop of the chai spices.
The tea tastes like a strong rooibos tea. The chai spices are light in the background. I taste cardamom, cloves, cinnamon. There is also a slight sweetness. At the end of the sip, there is a metallic rooibos taste.
This is not a horrible tea, but not something I would chose for myself.
