    If you are intrigued by all of the wonderful teas at Teavana and don't know which to choose, do yourself a favor and try Maharaja Chai Oolong, it is fabulous. The flavor and aroma take you away, the tea speaks for itself with the first sip. Rich but not too strong, the right blend of spices but not overpowering, just sweet enough, thoroughly enjoyable!

      This is a great tasting tea. Even a second brew has flavor when using 1.5tsp. I also like it blended with Samurai Chai.

        This is a spicy, warm tea. I like this more than the blend of this and the mate. It is nice and cinnamony. Definitely my favorite tea by far.

            I use to only drink Lipton.. but then I was walking by the first Teavana store that I've seen and the smell was SO incredibly inviting! This was the first tea that I bought and also got myself a teapot set. I have never gone back to Lipton again.
            I just didn't know real tea until I found Teavana and I've been SO IN LOVE with the place ever since! every tea I try, I love

              This tea is wonderful on it's own or steeped with the addition of dried fruit in the basket. It is a nice tea to dress up if you are wanting sweetness or festiveness without sacrificing health benefits.

                  I was searching for a chai blend which did not contain rooibos. I can't stand the back taste and the way rooibos feels on my tongue. The patient assistant at our local Teavana store went through every chai blend with me searching for just the right one without rooibos. The aroma of the Maharaja Oolong was heavenly, so I thought I'd give it a try. Wow! Just one sip put me in a happy place. It is now my favorite of all the teas in my cabinet. I use a little honey and whole milk to soften the spice. Perfectly heavenly.

                    I drink A LOT of Chai, and not all are created equal. This is quite possibly the best Chai I've ever had, including authentic Chai from India. Maybe it's the addition of the Oolong that makes it so good, I'm not sure. But, quite often, I feel, Chai needs a little almond milk to make it less bitter, but this blend was great on its own!

                      Let me start by saying I have never drank this tea solo. It has always been mixed into other teas. That being said, I will never let this tea run out at my house, and I use it so often. I have tried this tea with almost every other tea I own. It's perfect if your blend is in need of a little kick, and a little goes a long way because this tea is strong! I've added it to a seasonal apple cider blend, Samurai chai mate, and white ayurvedic chai and they were all delicious. Also, because of all of the spices, it is a great tea for when you're feeling under the weather to clear out your sinuses. I'd imagine it would be a little powerful solo, but blended, I can't recommend this tea enough!

                      I may not be a tea connoisseur like some of the other reviews, but I know what I like, and this tea is fantastic.

                        This tea never disappoints. If you are a chai lover - run, don't walk (or type) and pick up two ounces if you want to give it a try. I even mixed this with a blueberry kona and it was yummy.
