      One of my favorite teas from Adagio, and quickly becoming one of my favorite teas, period. The cinnamon is strong, but not overpowering. I find a little sugar smooths it out. Perfect for when you need a warm and comforting cup in the morning or at the end of the workday.

      Nice warm flavor. The cinnamon is rich, but not overpowering. I found it a bit weak with the suggested steeping, but with a little more time, it's great. I like to mix this with the Samurai Matte. If you're looking to get this as a replacement for the Teavanna Raja Oolong, it's very similar.

      I'll start by saying that I really just don't like chai, so that put this tea at a disadvantage right away. It smells pretty good - very heavy on the cinnamon - and it mostly just tastes like you dumped a whole bunch of cinnamon into hot water. It hardly even tasted like tea. It has a strange sweet taste to it. It's not the worst tea I have had, but I wouldn't choose it again,

      The cinnamon in this blend tasted similar to just taking a pinch of ground cinnamon and setting it on your tongue. There was almost nothing to support it or make it more complex so it just felt like a cinnamon tea.

      When I first opened this, I thought it smelled like wet dog. The taste was much better with mostly cinnamon coming through for me. The weird smell made a comeback with the aftertaste and I gave the rest of the cup to my husband. He ended up loving it, so I rated it right in the middle.

      Really warming and delicious blend of oolong and cinnimon. Both flavors oversteep easily though!

      Cinnamon all day long. If you're here for the other spices you're going to be disappointed... but if you're here for the cinnamon you've come to the right place.

      I steeped this a little stronger (longer time, less water), because I planned from the start to mix in [almond] milk. I did take a precursory taste before adding the milk though. Now I'm not familiar enough with oolongs to pick out it's flavor, so to me the cinnamon was definitely the strongest point here. Before adding milk it tasted like cinnamon candy - very strong (helped along by my longer steep I'm sure). I may have overdone it a touch with the milk, but it did it's job and tamed it down to a more suitable level for me.

      The more cinnamon the better for me. Getting notes of cinnamon, cloves and peppercorn. Very spicy for this who love cinnamon!

      Good, but sometimes I feel the spice tastes kind of fake, in a way. It tastes the way a crafts store smells in the fall/early winter.

      Great chai! Perfectly balanced spices, great with cream and sugar, stands up to a long steep perfectly.

      My new favorite! I'm drinking it every day. Finally found something that tastes similar to the chai blend I use to purchase from Teavana. Mix with samurai mate for best taste!

      This is an amazing tea with a lot of flavor. I take sugar in my tea, and its sweetness complemented the familiar spice of the chai very well. Delicious!

      It smells amazing dry, like cinnamon candy. It's milder when brewed, but not in a bad way. The oolong gives it a nice peachy taste that I hadn't had in a chai before
