I love a good spicy chai. The bad news was there wasn’t much spice that I could smell in the loose tea (even if it was in a sachet). This made me a little sad…like I said I love a good spicy tea. More when I’m feeling a bit stuffy.

BUT I was willing to wait to give it some redemption while it steeped. I thought for sure the spices would come out to play then. I was half right. I could smell the cinnamon and ginger and that was about all. Still it was better than nothing, right? Of course right! After the four minutes were up (it was suggested to give this tea 3-4 minutes) I gave it a little stir and took a sip. Everything the package promised was there…but muted. This wasn’t good.

So I added a few shakes of vanilla sugar and a bit of soy milk. Let me tell you those two additions kicked this Chai up! I tasted everything and I couldn’t drink this tea down fast enough after my additions were made!

This one is alright. It’s a gentle chai with gentle spices but it’s also floral smelling and tasting, too…somewhat perfumy.

Backlogging this from Wednesday… Wednesday here was a positively miserable day. It started out 61 and raining and horribly windy (yes 61 in December). Then progressed to sideways rain that soaks you through then dropped to about 40 by mid-day in case being soaked wasn’t bad enough. Needless to say when I got home I needed some tea!!! I made this with my chai honey and milk – I put too much honey in since I don’t really like my tea sweet but it was soothing and warming.

I looove chai, but generally choose to make a sort of pseudo-chai using just the spices, so as to refrain from consuming the caffeine. Feeling a bit woogy this morning I thought I’d give this chai a go- and it’s pretty mediocre. Just … vaguely chai spiced. (Not as good as the masala chai from SpecialTeas). I thought the cinnamon chips would stand out, but I don’t taste them at all.

Chai is, however, really great for soothing the tummy.
I accidentally oversteeped this one, and it still tastes a bit…pale… glad that the black tea didn’t turn bitter.

You know, the tea bag seemed a bit under-filled. I know a cup of tea always uses far less loose tea than I expect, but it still looked a bit sad. Revolution teas are always overpackaged, but they’d make good stocking stuffers or care-package add-ons. I’m gravitating towards tea bags as I am heading off to a scary language-intensive training program that involves living in a dorm. I am far too old for dorm living.

you don’t seem to be having much luck with Revolution Tea


Nah, they’re all fairly crappy so far. Totally unimpressed.


Which others have you tried so far!? There are a few I like!!!!

Try giving this one a whirl. If I had any left in my stash I would gladly send it your way…but…I’m fresh out…sorry!


This brand has some promise (I almost liked the alpine berry… almost) –


hee hee to “feeling a bit woogy” I was with you on the woogy feeling this am.


@TeaEqualsBliss Mmmm ginger peach does sound good- I have liked their orange-cocoa green before and their earl grey lavender, but that was it among those I’ve tried.

@Kristin- I think I’ve tried some teas from that company before- they used to sell them at one of the student UofChicago shops.

@SoccerMom – even though I am safely indoors I am blaming the weather ;)

I can definitely smell the cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg as soon as I open the packaging. I find myself imagining chocolate as well, but I think it’s more a mental association than an actual scent. As it steeps I smell mainly the cloves and cinnamon – a very “wintry” scent to me conjuring up warmth, mulled cider, and baked goods.

The liguor is a lovely shade of burnt orange. The taste is primarily of cinnamon and cloves/nutmeg, with just a hint of ginger on the finish. It is a bit “sharp” to me, but then I prefer my chai without too much spice. I added about 1.5 tsp sugar and a bit of milk and that mellows it out enough for me. I think it could use vanilla, but I feel that way about all spiced chais. Overall this tea tastes exactly how it should based on the ingredients. If you like chai, this is a very good bagged blend.

I hope this tea will wake me up. I’m feeling a bit fuzzy headed, maybe from the “get some zzz’s” tea I drank at 10pm. I did sleep a bit late this morning.

adding vanilla, orange, chocolate, or apple to this tea would complement these spices nicely I think.

Great soothing smell and beautiful color. Best bagged chai I’ve had, but not my favorite.

I enjoyed the spice of this tea. I purchased a sample box of tea to introduce me to some of the teas Revolution Tea offers.
I have placed this tea on my shopping list. I must make space for this tea in my tea cupboard.

Still the best bagged chai I’ve found.


I’ll have to try this next. I’ve been looking for a clove-heavy masala chai, and this might be it!

This chai is rich in flavor and bold in the spice department. The clove is very noticeable and verges on overpowering the other spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger). It has a very aromatherapeutic quality. All in all, I enjoyed this tea, but think that the spices could have been balanced with a more satisfyingly round ratio.

Preparation: steeped for 4.5 minutes at 206 degrees F.

There would’ve been a much easier way for me to drink soap during my afternoon break, if that’s what I had intended to do.
