 (19 reviews)

type: white

origin: sri lanka chai

caffeine: light

price level: $$$$

White tea, chai spices with lemongrass, coconut, fruit pieces and peppercorn combine for a light bodied zesty cup. Light yellow with complex notes of lemongrass, fruit and spice that dance on the palate. A fiery kick of the peppercorn lingers in the soft sweetness of the fruit. Steep at 195°F for 3 minutes

      Although the aroma of the dry tea is a strong cardamon and clove, those flavors don't coe through at all. This is a lovely, mild chai that isn't overshadowed by the flavor of the tea itself. I didn't taste any lemongrass or coconut. A second steep was also good.

      I like the spice I just wish it was a little bit more pronounced.

      So pleasantly surprised with this one! Was hesitant with the coconut and pineapple (I generally don't like those flavors), but I LOVE chai, so I want to try all of ones in the adagio catalog. In the bag, this smells unpleasant, like astringent. But once brewed, it has a mild spicy smell. This is delicious, refreshing, the spices blend well together. i also always drink chai with milk and honey and I thought this one did not need it. I tasted no coconut nor pineapple (which I was happy about) just white tea, slightly sweet, and spices.

      Personal opinion is that white tea isn’t a strong enough base to support a chai offering. If you are huge fan of white it may be a contender for you.

      Chai teas are ironically not my cup of tea but i found this one to be good. A first for sure.

      This is a fantastic drink and the only chai I like. I did brew for five minutes to bring out all the flavors. It is a lovely cup of cinnamon goodness.

      This is my go to Adagio tea. I love the complex but smooth flavors. The pepper corns give it just enough kick.

      Didn't love this, the white tea wasn't strong enough to support the spices here, and I felt like steeping it longer would just make everything bitter. If you want a mild chai to drink black, this might be a good contender though.

      This is a great chai with wonderful ginger notes. It’s not my favorite tea because I don’t really like chai but objectively speaking it puts an interesting spin on a familiar concept.

      I am definitely starting to get used to chai. I'm still not used to strong chai's so I do appreciate this lighter take on it. I'm not a fan of peppercorn though (so I pluck them out), but I'm loving the warm spice.

      This was spicier than I was expecting. I think the white tea made me think it would be more tame. I really enjoyed the spice and I think I need to explore white teas with chai spice a little more.

      Normally, I take my chai with cream and sugar. Being white tea based, I don't need any milk at all, and only a little sugar for that wonderful taste! Easily a new member of the favorites.

      Loved this blend of tea, spices and fruit. Everything is nicely balanced for a pale cup of sweet, spicy, and fruity flavors. Very nice!

      A weak chai. The white tea is too weak to support the spice flavors, most notably the peppercorn, giving the impression that I simply didn't steep my tea long enough. I'll pass on more.

      This is the tea the got me hooked on Adagio. White tea with enough spice and pepper notes to keep it different from other black chai teas.

      Spicy and refreshing. A warming cup of tea, it somehow blends lightness and warmth together!

      Very light chai, easy to brew and good for chai beginner.

      a light and spicy blend, one of my absolute favorites!

      In my opinion, one of the best chais on the site. Tastes similar to a teavana blend but better. I highly recommend.
