      Great decaf tea when you are in the mood for a chai without the caffeine. Nicely spiced and the orange comes through as well which is sometimes lost in spiced teas.

      The fragrance from this tea is beautiful. The spice combination makes this a perfect tea for sipping on a fall evening.

      This is a nice spiced tea with the added bonus of being caffeine free. The ginger, clove and cinnamon are prominent, with just a hint of orange. A good fall/ winter tea.

      I liked this one quite a lot. The taste is exactly what I think of when I think "Chai." Being a decaf makes it a bit better as a choice for evening than a caffeinated tea as well.

      One of the best decafs I’ve ever had and absolutely my favorite decaf from Adagio. The spices were smooth and added dimension without incorporating spiciness. Absolutely delicious.

    • 

      This is a very nice spiced, but not spicy black tea. The Ceylon tea is not astringent, and the spices are well-balanced. Very nice for when caffeine isn't needed.

    • 

      This is a lightly spiced black tea that tastes like the decaf version of Adagio's Oriental Spice. The spices are well balanced, though I mostly taste orange, cardamom, and cloves. I also enjoy that I can still taste the tea, not just spice.

    • 

      My serving wasn't very spice heavy, I'm not sure if that's by design or luck of the draw. But even with that I got a nice spice flavor, that seemed to favor cardamom just a bit. In the first steep the citrus just added a bit of background sweetness, in subsequent steeps the actual orange flavor shined through more. I got two decent steeps out of this, eeking a third out with a lil help from a pink of another [orange spice] black tea.

      Steeped (1) 195 2m 40sec, (2) 195F 3.5min, (3) 195F 4min

      I really enjoyed this one and I always appreciate a decaf tea. The spices were a nice blend and I would really like to try this one with an orange tea. It's kind of sweet, no added sugar or honey needed.

      

      This is a pretty good tea if you are in the mood for something Christmasy or spiced. The smell of the dry leaves makes me think of a cinnamon apple candle. The tea itself tastes good, and it is a lot fuller/hardier than a lot of decaf teas I have had. It ended up being a little bitter, so if you don't like the bitterness you might cut the steeping time by just a little. Overall, not bad but not one I would go out of my way to brew frequently. The kids really liked this one though!

    • 

      As a decaf tea, it's real good with some honey added. Flavor wise, it's like a worse pu erh spice. Although, this would probably be the only decaf I'd get again.

    • 

      Reminds me of constant comment, only not as strong or spicy. I'm disappointed it's not more powerful, but for decaf it's fine.

    • 

      Brewed 212F for 3 mins with rock sugar added

      This is not a bad tea. It definitely reminds me of the way that the orange and spice pomanders smell. I would probably drink this again if given the chance.

    • 

      Very good spicy notes of cinnamon and orange and cloves. I added some Adagio whipped cinnamon and this cup of tea became a warm blanket to keep me warm on this cold winter day.

      This was the decaf spiced black tea sent from heaven that got me through pregnancy.

    • 

      Tastes just like the name implies, clove comes through strongest out of the spices. Best as a tea for winter or to soothe a sick stomach.
