Product Details

For our holiday interpretation of a classic Indian drink, we have blended premium black teas with an exotic mélange of spices, including nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, clove and cardamom. Natural flavors of gingerbread and rum give this chai a unique twist. The brewed tea has a spicy-sweet gingerbread aroma, with a flavor that is medium-bodied. This tea is excellent plain or with milk (regular or evaporated) and sugar.

Some of the finest black tea in the world comes from India, the world's leading producer of tea. Included in these teas are the robust Assams, muscatel Darjeelings and well-balanced Nilgiris. However, most tea consumed in India is not enjoyed for its subtle flavor nuances, but instead is blended with sweet and pungent spices to make chai.

Chai is usually brewed very strong, often concentrated, with lots of sugar and milk. Traditional Indian chai combines rich black tea that is boiled in milk with local spices such as cinnamon, clove, cardamom, and occasionally black peppercorns, ginger, and red chilies. The drink is then sweetened with sugar.

Favorite Chai Ever!
August 13, 2014
Reviewer:  Heather P "Tea Afficianado" 

(Youngstown, OH)

I LOVE Chai tea and have had at least twenty different varieties--but this is my favorite one ever, beating Starbucks and other varieties I've tried from all over. I drink this one year round. It doesn't have a heavy peppery taste, but has a more mellow taste--I think a hint of nutmeg? I hate vanilla in tea so I'm sure it's not that, but whatever the combination is, it's amazing!

A friend got this for me one year, and I became instantly addicted. The spicy blend wakes me up and gets me going. I've had a lot of different chai blends, and this is--by far--my favorite. I drink it all year long.

Not for me

I usually enjoy spicy teas, but this one had an artificial flavor that turned me off. Can't quite put my finger on it; maybe it was too much clove.

Holiday Chai

Reviewer:  Lisa "Lover of Holiday Chai!"

I found this tea up in the cupboard. Don't know how long it was there. I drink this tea everyday. I love the spices and it is so smooth! Did I mention I drink it plain? I can't imagine going back to some of the tea I had before. I was so excited to find that you still have some in stock! I can't wait for my shipment to arrive. Thanks Stash Tea! You outdid yourself! After reading the reviews I might need to try the loose leaf.

I have hunted for this tea for a while now and broke down and bought it online. It has the best flavor, Like Christmas morning in your favorite pajamas. With just a bit of honey or sugar or even milk, this tea is for everyone.

Delightful twist on traditional Chai
August 15, 2013
Reviewer:  Kate K "The Bookworm Banker" 

(Boston MA)

 - See all my reviews
I enjoy regular chai tea, but I really love the additional spices in this blend. I can't say my palate is sophisticated enough to catch the gingerbread and rum notes, but I do detect Christmastime spices and I enjoy every drop. I use a little honey to sweeten and bring out the flavor, and thoroughly enjoy the harmony of the traditional Christmas spices with traditional Chai tea.

I really enjoyed this tea ...need to try the loose as I like I stronger brew - gotta stock up on this one! I think the addition of the rum & gingerbread flavors, makes it a bit special.

vanilla!
February 12, 2012
Reviewer:  Jonathan L. Roupe "tea taster"

wow! we tried this tea first in the bag form and then purchased the loose tea. the loose really has much more flavor with a stronger vanilla/jamaican rum flavor. an excellent tea both ways but i think the loose will be one of our favorites for special and everyday use.

great for tea jelly

I didn't care for this at first but found that it makes great tea jelly. I use the recipe from Stash but make it with apple rather than grape juice and have gotten tons of compliments on it.
