type: herbal

origin: sri lanka chai

caffeine: light

price level: $$$$

For those days when you're feeling a bit adventurous, steep a cup of this exotic, yet subtle twist on classic chai. We've taken the delicate flavor of white tea and blended it with familiar chai flavors and the added zesty notes of lemongrass, coconut and pineapple. Steep this aromatic beauty for a complex cup of fruit and spice that leaves the alluring essence of cinnamon dancing in its wake. Steep at 212°F for 5 minutes

      Smells amazing and a great cup for when you feel a cold or sore throat coming on!

      This tea smelled absolutely lovely when I opened it. I love the flavors in chai, so I was very excited to taste this tea.

      I followed the directions to steep this tea for 5 minutes, but after the five minutes, I felt like the spice flavor was too weak, so I put my strainer back in for another 2minutes. After 7 minutes, the flavor of spice was more prominent, but the tea became a little more bitter than I prefer, so I added a dollop of honey.

      Overall, I found the tea a little mediocre. It's not bad, but there are certainly better chais out there. There's really nothing that makes it stand out.

      I'm not a huge chai person, so I wasn't sure if I was going to like today's tea. Seeing so much cinnamon and black peppercorn on the list made me a bit leery. With that said, I quite enjoyed this! It's not spicy, but has nice notes of cinnamon and a touch of sweetness. I can't pick out individual flavors as noted on the package, but it comes together well.

      Brewed at 212F for 5min

      A very mellow chai, without bitterness or that astringent feel. I enjoyed this tea with a 1/4 tsp of honey. It was delicious.

      This tea is so cozy, I just want to float on a river of it as I bob up and down with the current. The cinnamon plays very well with the ginger and is one chai that I enjoy more than I dislike it!

      That being said, I was missing the tropical flavors that really make this blend what it is. I enjoyed the flavors I got but some just weren't present. I can only imagine how good it his tea might have been if app flavors showed up to the party.

      Warming, gentle chai. The white tea is balanced with less spices than usual in a chai. Tastes and smells mostly of cinnamon and cloves. Unfortunately the tropical flavors did not come through at all.

      I am not a fan of almost all chais and I wish I was since they look so good. However this one was not so harsh and I handled the spice. It wasn’t all cloves or peppercorns. Perhaps it was the dominant taste of cinnamon that changed my mind.

      I got it once with my first adagio order, but I don't remember being particularly enthused about it. I do tend to stick to green and black teas as opposed to white teas, so maybe that's why.

      Loved the Teavana version. I can’t compare since I don’t have both but this seems just as good if not better.

      This tea, blended with adagio's Samurai Mate almost perfectly recreates the Teavana blend that piqued my interest in tea years ago. Love it!

      To create the blend, add 1 tsp of Samurai Mate and 2 tsp of White Ayurvedic Chai. Steep for 5 minutes @ 212°F.

      This is a great tea for when you want chai, but you don't want too much caffine.

      Nicely spiced chai, a little tropical with light cinnamon flavor.

      The lemongrass and pineapple make this chai tea taste less chai like to me. It is still a decent tea, but not really my cup of tea.

      This was a really nice white tea version of a classic. I enjoyed it a lot!

      I love this tea! The flavors are exotic and wonderful. I combine this tea with the Samurai Chai tea and the flavors are heavenly!
