Boo to the new recipe

    • Artificial Taste

    Best Uses

      Old recipe was better.I guessed right when I predicted the Starbucks relationship would kill the goodness of Teavanna. How dare them skimp on ingredients and ruin all my old favorites. I guess I'll just save my money if they keep skimping on real ingredients and adding artificial flavor. I hate when a company starts favoring prifit above quality.

      I received this tea as a sample on my most recent Teavana online order. I have to admit that I'm not usually a chai tea fan but I thought this one was pretty decent. I liked it but I definitely couldn't drink this more than on occasion. It has a strong cinnamon flavor, which can get old after a while. I really like the undertone of ginger root and cloves though. That is nice. This tea is also extremely aromatic. Quite frankly, it smells amazing. As far as the taste goes, if there was less cinnamon and more cloves and oolong, I think I would prefer it even more. All in all though, it was a good tea.

      My favorite Teavana tea and my favorite chai. Because it is low in caffeine I sometimes add a touch of English Breakfast. Other chais I have to blend together or add spices to get the best flavor. Maharaja is perfect for me and needs nothing to be truly enjoyed except a little sweetner and a touch of milk or half and half.

        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.
