"This tea is Assam-based and heavily spiced. It's very good brewed in the traditional way with sugar and milk, but a bit too bitter and strong to drink by itself. Since I usually skip the milk, next time I'll stick with TE33 Chai Spice Tea which is fantastic by itself." Alyssa

"I was surprised to find that this was a CTC style tea. There are visible pieces of spices and the dry tea smells wonderful. The tea comes through much more strongly in this chai than in TE33 (chai spice tea). I oversteeped it once, and it became rather bitter and the tea overpowered the spices. But 3-4 minutes is perfect. I add a teaspoon of sugar and a splash of milk and it's wonderful." Carla C

"I normally order Chai Spice Tea (TE33), but this was on special so I ordered it instead. I didn't like it at all. The leaves were so tiny they looked like dust. There was a weird spice flavor it in it other than the ones listed. I ended up throwing it out."
