 (33 reviews)

type: herbal

origin: south africa chai

caffeine: no-caffeine

price level: $$$$

This blend of rooibos, vanilla, and Chai spice will dance on your palate, and sing to your soul. Beautiful clear and bright cup, with a crisp and tangy-sweet flavor. The heat of the spices is balanced beautifully with the natural smooth, mellow quality of the rooibos. Naturally caffeine free for an anytime treat. We suggest two heaping teaspoons per 8 oz cup. Sugar, cream or soy if desired. Steep at 212°F for 7-10 minutes

      I love chai, and this isn't my favorite. It has a strange aftertaste, can't put my finger on it. It's almost plastic in flavor. Nice spice, but that aftertaste really throws me off. Can't smell it in the bag, but can smell and taste once brewed. I tried this hot only, on its own and with honey and milk and can still taste it.

      Rooibos I generally only enjoy under certain conditions, and chai I don't generally enjoy all that much, but this was a really enjoyable experience. Would definitely seek it out again

      I'm not a fan of rooibos or chai, but they blend beautifully in this tea. I steep at 212°F for 10 minutes, then add a little almond milk and maple syrup for a chai latte. Delicious! The orange and vanilla provide a subtle sweetness. The chai is not too spicy, and there is no aftertaste from the rooibos. A second steep (15 minutes) was just as tasty.

      So far, this is my favourite chai blend from adagio. Not too bitter and goes well with a bit of milk and sugar.

    • 

      I've come to the understanding that I am not a huge chai fan, but I do prefer this over other chai blends. This is fairly cardamom forward.

      Steeped at 212F for 7min

      Brewed 212°F for 8 mins with rock sugar added

      This is definitely not my favorite tea. Even though I brewed it for 8 minutes, it still tasted closer to spiced water to me. I did smell nice, though.

    • 

      I'm always excited for a chai with no caffeine. This spice blend is really nice, but I personally would add another scoop or so to make it stronger. Not quite as vanilla as I would like.

      The two types of tea I can't stand are rooibos and chai, so when I opened this for the CommuniTEA, it was disappointing. That being said, it wasn't as stomach turning as some rooibos or chais I have had. The rooibos, which gives it a slightly "gone bad" taste to me, was pretty mild, and the chai was definitely more prominent, making this a very spicy tea. It seems like it would be a good holiday tea for people who like chai and rooibos.

    • 

      It had a nice level of spice, the flavor that lingered the most seemed to be the ginger for me. I think the Rooibos melds well with the Chai flavors.

      I [forgot] let it steep for about 25min, then added sugar and steamed [almond] milk.

    • 

      Very aromatic spices. A bit spicier than most with lots of ginger and cloves. Not a lot of vanilla flavor and an odd orange flavor shows up that I didn't care for. But still a wonderful, caffeine-free chai.

    • 

      Typically not a fan of red rooibos but the chai spice overpowered the medicinal taste of the rooibos and was somewhat decent.

    • 

      This is a solid chai. The vanilla comes through but is not overwhelming, and the spice is well balanced. This would work well as a dessert tea or an afternoon/evening indulgence.

    • 

      I really enjoyed this! You can def taste the vanilla and the chia not overwhelming. 10 min at 212

      A nice caffeine free alternative to regular chai tea. Not overly spicy, but warm and hearty.

      Solid chai tea. Very sweet with a spiced flavor. Barely can taste any vanilla. Would drink again.

      I thought this was a good Chai tea. It was definitely not my favorite but the flavor was there. Maybe add some honey and milk and i think most will like it

      Yummy!!! Great caffeine chai tea with health benefits

    • 

      I really liked this herbal chai. The spices were well balanced, the vanilla was nice and the roobois made a nice base. Recommended.

      Adagio has done it again! Another "dessert tea". If you like chai, this is a "must try". You'll love it!💖

    • 

      A perfect tea for a late night chai craving. The flavor of chai spices, sweetness of vanilla, all without the caffeine.

      This is a really good chai, but I wish the vanilla flavor was stronger.

    • 

      Its alright. Not very much a rooibos person but this one is nice. Very nice for cold mornings!

    • 

      The vanilla is just a little too mild for my taste. The spices are nice but they seem to overwhelm the vanilla, which I prefer to be more pronounced.

    • 

      Pretty good flavor. Not too strong, not too weak. I like it in the fall.

    • 

      I love this chai! It's amazing on it's own and I also blend it with Mate' chai for when you want caffeine!

    • 

      A delicious balance of earthiness and spice, this brings out the best of all the ingredients

    • 

      A pretty solid chai, maybe the ginger is a little strong for my personal taste. I don't get a whole lot of vanilla from it

    • 

      Nice, smooth blend of vanilla with cinnamon and cardamom.

      One of my favorite chai teas...the aroma of this tea is so pleasing as you sip it, so relaxing

    • 

      My favorite chai! Just add some steamed milk to make it a latte!

    • 

      I love this one with just a little bit of milk or cream. It is sweet enough without any sugar and is really soothing for an evening tea.

    • 

      This one is good as well. I was able to brew this one twice and have it taste just a good the second time around. This one didn t need any milk or sweetener. It was perfect just as it was.

    • 

      Very good for a warm cup of chai late at night when I don't want any caffeine keeping me up. Its just sweet enough that it doesn't need sugar, and just a little warm milk calms the spices down to a perfect level.
