This is pretty mild for a Chai. I find it interesting that there are no cloves in this. For me, cloves are the first spice I think of when I think of a Masala Chai. The two primary flavors here is the chocolate and the cardamom. There is also a good amount of cinnamon and vanilla. The ginger adds a very subtle spiciness at the end of each sip. The nutmeg is not really there, I don’t think. The 4 primary flavors is chocolate, cardamom, cinnamon and vanilla.
I think they made the spices really mild in order to give the chocolate a chance to shine through – which it does. It’s very dessert-like and more decadent than a normal Chai. The flavor reminds me very much of LU Bastogne cookies.
This tea actually reminds me of a tea from Kusmi Tea called “Spicy Chocolate” which is a black tea flavored with chocolate, cinnamon, cardamom and ginger.
The tea base here is a blend of Chinese and Indian black teas. It doesn’t say anything about CTC pellets on their website or on the tin, but it looks like the Indian black tea in this is a CTC, like their regular Chai. The tea also has a stronger body than usual – medium to full in body. The CTC pellets together with the ground cinnamon and nutmeg makes a dust that settles on the bottom of the tin (the whole leaves settle on top), which doesn’t look very good. So you have to dig deep in the tin every time you make a mug of this tea, in order to get some of those dusty parts on your spoon. I don’t know if it’s supposed to be this way, but it is very unfortunate in my opinion. You’d need a paper filter when you make this tea so the dusty parts don’t end up in your cup.
Overall, this is an excellent and flavorful tea with lots of chocolate and spice notes, but the dust in the tin detracts from the aesthetics of the tea. Sadly.

I ordered this because I love Harney & Sons Chai and I was certain I would love the chocolate chai at least as much. To be honest, I much prefer the original. This one isn’t bad but the chocolate doesn’t come through as strongly as in their other chocolate teas. This is a nice spicy chai and is a warm relaxing cup of tea to enjoy but I’m very underwhelmed by the chocolate aspect. I’ll have no problem drinking the tin but I probably won’t order another of this version. Your mileage may vary.
I had to try a sample of this from an order a while ago, as it sounded amazing. With additional elements like nutmeg, chocolate and vanilla, it sounded like a blend I should try. It’s also on a base of Chinese and India black teas which also seem perfect for the tastes going on here. All the ingredients look extremely small in my teaspoon, so I just used one teaspoon. Overall, sadly, I was imagining the blend much better than the result: it seems like a typical chai, but with only a hint of mediocre chocolate flavor. The second cup I let steep for quite a while, so I think the flavors really made it into the cup. Somehow there were still a ton of chocolate flavor in the second steep. I’m also surprised the oversteep didn’t get a bite to it. It was actually quite good. I’m glad the black tea is brisk, as this is chai, but I was imagining the Chinese black tea itself to have a natural chocolate flavor. So this blend couldn’t live up to my imagination, but it’s a decent cup.
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for a full mug // few minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // 2 minutes after boiling // 5 minute steep
First to review! I should come out and say right now that I put Cool Whip on top of this, so I’m going to be getting more vanilla and creamy sweetness than someone who made this the traditional way.
This smells rich with gingerbready spices and warm chocolate. However, it already comes across as artificial chocolate, like a Tootsie Roll. Why is it so hard for tea companies to do chocolate right?? Is cacao too expensive?
Anyway, the flavor is less chocolatey than the aroma, as expected. This basically tastes like a ginger-heavy regular chai, with some odd spice notes I’m having trouble separating out. It almost tastes like rooibos. I only really get the chocolate notes on the exhale. This isn’t bad in any way, just not what I had hoped it would be. I need to learn to avoid Harney & Sons’s attempts at chocolate.
