    I have absolutely loved this tea, drinking a pot a day at work. I buy it by 1/2 lb at a time, every three months, or so. After the last refill, every single pot has been extremely weak. I've had to double the amount of tea I use every time.
    It is disappointing and infuriating. Another reviewer said they changed to mix to favor profit, and it may be true.

      I got this tea as part of the holiday line last year and just recently drank it and it is wonderful. It is a bit spicy, but not overwhelmingly so. It is really good iced. I didn't feel like heating it up since I had been away from home all day and had it iced and it was still good like that.

          This was referred by an online friend and boy! Did she nail me with this one! I went to my local Teavana the next day and bought some fresh :).
          The spice doesn't hit right away, instead you feel it right at the back of the palette.
          I can't wait to try the other teas.

            I bought this, along with a few other teas, as part od Tevana's Christmas line last year and just opened it today and it has held up well since then. It is a bit spicy, but not overpoweringly so.

            Great taste, but it used to have ALL natural ingredients.

            Superb Taste. This tea is my favorite. It is hot and soothing, and just makes me want to drink more. But I originally thought that Teavana used to not use artificial ingredients...

              This is my favorite tea ever! I went through 2oz in 5 days. I like to add 1 teaspoon per 8 ounces or else it's a little too spicy. Just a couple of German Rock Sugars and it's delicious! Everyone who I have recommended it to fell in love right away! Perfect Tea.

                I love the taste. Got it as a sample with my order. Thank you Teavana. It says it has the rock sugar already in it but I found I had to add a bit more sugar for my taste. But other than that, great for the beginners. Small aftertase, which I assume is from the artifical flavouring......

                    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.
