I remember having a bag of maharaja chai many years ago, so I was happy to see a little sample in a previous TTB. The scent really takes me back. The flavor isn’t very complex. It’s sort of just a tang of cinnamon stick. It’s a little thin, and I never used to drink it with milk, but I tried some this time and think that helped a bit. I’m not really sure what the samurai chai mate adds since I feel like I only taste the other tea. I don’t need more of this one, but it’s always nice to sample some classic Teavana!
