391892391892B000CQBZPGA19S0T41IJIQI3Sandlapper3511207612800Tea? What Tea?Honestly, that's what I thought throughout trying this tea. The smell and taste is entirely of cinnamon. I couldn't ever taste the tea- and even in my smallest cup it tasted weak and watery.

If you want caffeinated cinnamon, go for it.

If you want true chai... look elsewhere.

PS. What's with the size of the bags? Not even 2 grams per bag. Even for American-style tea bags, this is small.
391893391893B000CQBZPGA3O6FCBYGK8EZ9MGP1251297296000Delicious Spiced Tea (Chai)Compared to other bagged teas, this is delicious and highly aromatic blend of chai.

Right from the opening you will smell the wonderful cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg notes.

Although I enjoy it all alone, this probably tastes just as good with milk/sugar but I haven't had to use them to enhance the flavor.

Once this cools down a bit, the flavors are more distinct and mellow to my taste.

I try not to go past 2.5 minutes while brewing and so far this is working for me. I haven't had any issues with bitterness, etc.

Go ahead and play around with brewing length since it can vary based on water temperature and quality.

I was a bit hesitant since I've already tried the Jasmine Blossom Green tea from Stash, but this was surprisingly good and is a refreshing alternative to other teas.

Give this a shot, you might love it!

Pawl "Dani"1251296864000flavorful....This tea (chai) has a great blend of spicy flavors (gingery, etc) in addition to being invigorating (yes, this is black tea). For me, all it takes is a little splash of milk and a drizzle of honey, blended in, and I am one happy camper!
391895391895B000CQBZPGA32EF8CKB8RSRTLonely Tourist1231296000000Not fond of smell or tasteI purchased 3 different flavors of Stash tea when it was on sale at Sprouts after seeing the great reviews on Amazon. I must say, Stash makes mediocre tea. There's something about the aroma and taste of their teas that does not agree with my senses. Maybe it's the cloying smell of the bergamot in their Earl Grey. I prefer Twinings, especially their Lady Grey tea over Stash. Of all the teas I've tried so far, Ahmad's fruit-flavored teas are my favorite (especially the Peach & Passion Fruit Black Tea, but the mango is good as wel). Aroma and taste is amazingly refreshing.
391896391896B000CQBZPGA2V18JN5XI2GOBC. Woods1221275350400Not a fanNot familiar with what "chai" tea is supposed to taste like but this tea tasted like stewed cloves to me Yuck.Got this flavor in a sampler box and, so far, it's the only Stash tea I've tried and disliked strongly. Some are better than others, of course, but I find this particular flavor really, really unpleasant, which is odd given my love for most of the spices listed on label. The problem is that the clove just overwhelms everything and that's about all I could taste, outside a touch of cinnamon. IMO, clove has much too strong a taste to be used beyond sparingly...in anything. Perhaps adding milk and sugar might've made it more palatable - might even be the way it's 'supposed' to be prepared, but one of the reasons I drink tea is to stay away from having to add sweeteners or milk to make it taste good. In any case, I can't imagine using enough milk/sweetener to subdue the overwhelming clove taste would leave any room in the mug for tea or water.
391897391897B000CQBZPGA3TZOKN21IV4KRBJ Ladydoc "BJ"1251273622400You Really Should Try this if You Like Chai!I happen to love chai tea, but am not fond of some of the ingredients that are in some store products. This is by far the best chai I have found. It is much stronger than you would think, so I actually make more than one serving at a time, and mix it with plain black tea (use your favorite; I know lots of teas, and use Assam -- a very strong black tea -- in combination). You can drink it with or without milk and sweetening, but remember that most chai teas you buy in tea and coffee shops have both milk and sweetening in them. It can be served either hot or chilled.
The price is excellent, and I can get it in quantity so I don't (Heaven forbid!) run out. If the taste is a little TOO strong for you, they also have the chai spiced black tea in the Stash brand, which has fewer non-tea additives.
I even have friends who "don't care for tea" who have gotten hooked on this stuff, so it must be pretty good!Stash Premium Double Spice Chai Black Tea, Tea Bags, 18-Count Boxes (Pack of 6)
391898391898B000CQBZPGA3S9JLXLM02E0LThe Mom1251268524800yumThis is the best orange spice tea I have ever had. Lots of flavor.
391899391899B000CQBZPGA2OWR2PL3DLWS4Love to Cook1211263081600NOT organicI bought this because I thought it actually had organic ingredients- as the description stated. It does not. It's quite good Chai tea, but I'd rather drink organic Allegro chai tea (available at Whole Foods for close to this price) than buy this stuff. The good news is that unlike some teas on Amazon, this one is very fresh and has a good sell-by date. I ordered it only a few weeks ago, and it is good until 11/2012. So if you don't care about organic tea, and you want a nice chai with strong cinnamon overtones, this is a pretty good one. I really like Allegro chai- it tastes more balanced to me, and I was hoping the Stash would be like that, but it's not.
391900391900B000CQBZPGA1ND4DZS3KBG8OLaura1231250985600not greatThis tea has a good price/bag but for some reason doesn't have a great or even very strong flavor.
391901391901B000CQBZPGA17BXN9X0G4U3Qlove to cook1231246060800still practicing, can not return.the smell of spices from this tea is awesome, but the tea itself is weak, if you try to let it soak in the cup for extra seconds it will leave bitter taste,I tried to add a packet of lipton tea but the taste still bitter, so
I'm still practicing with it, it also didn't work with half&half, not much with coffee mate. nothing like the original or made from scratch.
MY RECOMMENDATIONS: since it is huge quantity that you can't return, try one package from the store first and see if it works for you.
391902391902B000CQBZPGA2SHTXPPW1C0OECarol H. Gordon1241236038400Very Good TeaI have enjoyed the Stash Orange Spice Black Tea for years. While I like and drink it often, I actually enjoy the Lipton version better. I bought this again because it seems that Lipton has discontinued theirs, at least on a temporary basis. There is a subtle difference between the two and it's a personal thing with me, but I do hope the Lipton has not been discontinued. If so, I will certainly buy this again. I would also compare this to Constant Comment (Bigelow). If you've tasted and enjoyed that brand, you will like this one. All in all, a very good product!
391903391903B000CQBZPGA2MP8FH6BHYRFBH. Suescun1251164758400ExquisiteI love this tea, everytime I drink it I just can't believe how delicious it is! I totally recommend it.
391904391904B000CQBZPGA38ZKXQ907J3L4TeacherMama "youngteach22"1251163635200Chai on a Cold Winter's Night... Perfect!I have been a Stash Tea fan for years. The price on Amazon Grocery is terrific, and yes, you will drink your chai every day throughout the winter! Try the regular or decaf chai with a tablespoon or two of real cream--it's the perfect drink for those chilly days.
391905391905B000CQBZPGA37I99GFZ1B6YONeal Vanderstelt "Neal"1241162080000Not badThis tea is best hot.. It's ok cold but I usually drink it plain and imagine it would probably taste better with stevia leaf or xylitol sweetner..
391906391906B000CQBZPGA2XWDHTF1F8X3NProfessional Shopper "SD"2421266624000Too bitterI hardly order chai teai, then I tried Tazo chai tea, due to the nice reviews on Stash brand and cheaper price I went for it. Way too bitter in comparison to Tazo, I used almost 10 ounces of water and I wasn't able to finish my cup. It is very bitter!!! Be aware, and only buy it if you like real real strong black tea. As a matter of fact is more like black tea than chai.

Keep in mind I am not a tea expert, but if I like a nice cup of tea, and never have not finished one, like in this case.
391907391907B000CQBZPGA14DR2RP5PAKNSLaura0111341619200Not like chai at all!!I'm looking for a really good chai to make at home. This had good reviews and my local grocery store actually carried it. I brought it home, made a cup and literally couldn't drink it. I had to put 3 tsp the sugar in it and extra cream to even be able to take a few sips. And thats reslly saying domething because i usually take little to no sugar in my tea. I actually like bitter black tea. This chai by stash isn't bitter so much as just plsin bad. I love chai and used to order loose leaf ( at a high price) from a place online that doesn't have it anymore. I guess you get what you pay for. This tea has a terrible after taste i can't begin to describe. Like dirt or sour cinnamon. I like both cinnamon and cloves so i'm not sure my complaint is the same as other reviewers. It really tastes like old bitter, sour, cheap spices to me! Glad i got this on sale at the store rather than wasted money ordering here. This box willbe going to work, annonously so no one knows it's from me! Or perhaps i should just throw it out. Don't like to be wasteful but I can't bear the thought of drinking a whole box of this!
391908391908B000CQBZPGA1TWMVW3V1TY43Ananda0111340928000Not authentic chaiJust because the tea contains all the spices of chai tea, it isn't necessarily chai. The spices are incorrectly proportioned and some flavors such as cinnamon are too strong. This is simply not authentic chai.
391909391909B000CQBZPGA23KOGFLV2TZ0QAmazonJunkiest0141338940800Pretty good & refreshing though I have had better Spice ChaiGood stuff but not great.Better than the other brands I have tried so far.It probably needs a little bit more caffeine & spice kick to make it more flavorful.Next time will try the double spice chai..
391910391910B000CQBZPGA2UJUMMYRDEWNVspiritllc0111326585600Really Bad TeaThe first cup I brewed was awful. Nice bergamot scent but horrible BITTER tea taste. I tried brewing two more times using alternate techniques. But, still horrible BITTER tea each time. I will not buy this brand again.
391911391911B000CQBZPGA14NWREC1IZVQWJ. H. Fitzgerald0151325721600Great taste!The Stash brand teas pass with flying colors by every tea drinker in the office (all English or Russian). The English Breakfast and Earl Grey are their favorites.
391912391912B000CQBZPGA1O63UOW5GXQ0DLev Feldman0111320710400The tea smells like a medicine.The tea smells like a medicine with Anise flavor before even brewing it. No one in my family could drink it as it has strong anise flavor. There is not even a slight trace of bergamot flavor... I called STASH customer service to see perhaps the pack was mislabeled, no one answered or called me back. I am sending this back.
391913391913B000CQBZPGA2LTH39NSK6257Jason Drury0151317081600Capt. Picard drinks Earl GreyThis excellent tea is an Earl Grey. Capt. Picard drinks Earl Grey. If Picard drinks it, I drink it; that should be sufficient to get my point across. But for those of you who don't recognize the reference I'll say that I'm very pleased that my lady friend in Stash's hometown turned me on to this. I have a few cups every day, usually with some toast and almond butter. If you find typical tea like Lipton to be a bore or want to lay off the coffee for a while, try some of this and be pleasantly surprised.
391914391914B000CQBZPGA2PQUL8TI4P4HVNakkiel0151303344000Great teaI haven't tried it with milk yet as many reviews suggest, but it is amazing even without it. Buy it, you won't regret it.
391915391915B000CQBZPGA3PI6O5RQF35OASummer Girl0141302048000Terrific chai at a great price!This is one of the best chai blends available on grocery store shelves, a perfect cominbation of spicy clove, cardamom, and other spices with just the right amount of cinammon for sweetening. The refreshing aroma wafting from my cup is so delightful that it's almost a shame to drink it; I really could just sit there inhaling the vapors. My preferred brewing method is to steep for about 5 minutes, then add a touch of honey. The only thing that could make this tea better is a hint of vanilla, although you could add some of your own if you were so inclined. Of all the teas I've tried, this one is my second favorite, eclipsed only by Celestial Seasonings India Spice chai (which does have that natural vanilla flavoring).
391916391916B000CQBZPGA1NHFZGMDB4GPVlwitty0151299110400Can't live without it!!Love this brand and wouldn't buy anything different!! Spices are perfect! It's best with vanilla soymilk. Makes my day.
391917391917B000CQBZPGA1AEQZM99LO9VADebra Koch0141299110400Spice tea + International French Vanilla = YummyI didn't like the tea by itself or with just cream and honey. After adding Maxwell House International Coffee French Vanilla to this tea, it was delicious! It tasted like a 5 dollar cup from the coffee houses. Yummy
391918391918B000CQBZPGA1PXOVIVN166E4M. Wells "Mr. Cool"0151294272000The best chai tea on the marketI've tried many others but this is by far the best chai tea out there. The spices in this one are amazing and I can't stop drinking the tea. I probably have 3-4 glasses a day. Recent studies have stated that drinking chai tea can boost metabolism. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.
391919391919B000CQBZPGAUE7E97F248OKSandy0141294185600Good, cheap, heartyI wouldn't buy this for my house, but I always welcome a cup when out and about -- it's better than most brands of earl grey carried at cafes! It is hearty with a strong bergamot flavor.
This tea outperforms earl grey by: Mighty Leaf, Choice Organics, Celestial Seasonings, Tea Gschwendner, Numi
It seems on par with: Tazo, Republic of Tea
It is not as good as: Revolution, Far Leaves
391920391920B000CQBZPGA3J171NBGIBYAWD. Mansfield "Book Addict"0151288569600Very Nice FlavorBest Chai tea I've ever tried and I've tried about ½ a dozen brands (albeit before my Amazon days). I liked their mint tea and had a craving for this so took a chance. Glad I did. I'll be back for more.
