I’m not normally I chai fan, but this somehow manages to be zesty and smooth at the same time. And it’s good and strong! Put three teaspoons in a pot and you can pour water in it for hours.

Our classic Chai blend of black tea with cloves, star anise, sweet cinnamon, ginger and orange peel and delicious cacao bean pieces provides a distinctive, warm chocolaty aroma with nutty nuances. Slightly softer spices makes this a comforting and silky smooth winter winner.

A slightly different but gorgeous chai tea. Overall, I tend to like it stronger, and will on occasion just leave the tea at the bottom of the mug whilst I drink.
Excellent with a touch of soy milk and honey, as pretty much all chai teas are.
I tend to love this tea morning to early afternoon, as it gives a slight energy kick.
This is from TreeGal’s package back in the day. Thanks so much! TreeGal didn’t like this one and I can’t say I do either. It’s odd. It’s almost like there is a chai flavoring sprayed onto the leaves and I can’t say it’s very tasty or appealing. It’s too strong anyway. There was an entire star anise in the infuser… But also the black tea itself is so weak the brew hardly has any color to it. One element of any chai I can’t abide is a weak brew. Chai needs to be deep and dark. Also, there is nothing and I mean NOTHING “chocolate chip” about this blend. Nothing at all. Did they forget any chocolate? The description mentions cacao bean pieces? Also there was a ton of orange blossoms in the blend though the blend didn’t taste like them at all. An odd blend. I’m surprised by the high steepster rating but maybe TreeGal and I have a bad batch.
I haven’t met a T2 tea I’ve disliked until now. It’s a lovely mix to look at, I’ll give it that. But I don’t know if it was just my bag (which I did shake up first) or what, but the only flavor in mine was intense anise. It was so strong I got that menthol burn from it. There was a faint underlying earthiness that I think was the chocolate, but it definitely didn’t taste or smell like chocolate. I don’t mind hints of anise, but this was so overpowering that’s the only real flavor I got.
Flavors: Anise, Menthol
My favourite T2 tea. The right amount of spice, and chocolate-y without being sweet in and of itself. Of course, being chai, I tend to add honey to it. Quite robust, this tea is a fantastic pick-me-up.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Clove, Pepper
A tea from the traveling tea box! Thanks Amariel for sending it my way :)
(what was this one called again? My memory is broken haha)
Anyhow, the tea. With or without a dash of milk I found it quite yummy.
I see a lot of notes about how the chocolate aspect is missing. I dunno I went in thinking I probably wouldn’t find much cocoa and while I do find that I was right, there IS a distinct chocolate cookie impression, just not a strong one. I’d say 80% ginger cookie and 20% chocolate cookie. That exceeded my expectations! :P
Otherwise, the spices here are quite nice. Smooth, and perfectly blended. Of course, in a chai each spoonful of loose tea is slightly different so maybe I just got lucky.
Either way, if I came across this in a store, I’d snatch it up.
On a more personal note, this is turning out to be a terrible no good week. Some drama happened over the weekend and I got burned. Then Mum didn’t come home last night and she wasn’t answering her cell. She had an ultrasound appointment earlier that day so we were a bit worried and confused.
We got a phonecall at 12:30am that she was in the hospital with kidney stones. Had to pick her up and finally fell into bed at almost 4am.
I’m a bit of a zombie today. Plus I’ve been hovering over mama bird making sure she’s got all the things she needs.
I wonder what Wednesday will have in store for us…
This really is a wonderful tea, and a must try if you want to sample something different to the usual chai. It was also my introduction to the T2 brand, and what an intro it was! :) So smooth, and so very more-ish.
