This tea is unique as far as I’m concerned. While most chai is caffeinated, this example is caffeine free. Drinking it, I feel like I should be feeling a caffeine kick, but it’s notably lacking. Is this a good thing? I’m not sure! This tea, being rooibos-based, has a bit of a unique flavor. It’s definitively chai, but also something more. The cardamom, cinnamon, and nutmeg add a wonderful spicy flavor to what is a more earthy than normal chai.
All in all, this is far from my favorite chai. It’s not even my favorite chai in this box. However, it’s still an excellent tea that could fit the bill if you are craving chai, but it’s too late at night for a caffeinated drink. I doubt I’ll be buying it in bulk any time soon… if I’m drinking chai, I want the caffeine to go along with it, but it’s well worth considering, and I can’t find a real fault with what they were trying to accomplish.
