SAMURAI SPIRIT MATE
William Barbur (East Pembroke, US)
You've made me very happy!

I've missed Samurai Chai for so long, and I finally found a really good replacement. Thank you for this. Paired with the Maharaja Chai Oolong I have my old favorite blend back.

SAMURAI SPIRIT MATE
Debbie S (Maineville, US)
Wonderful but....

This tea is excellent if you are looking for something similar to what Tevena carried. I am disappointed that Tealeavz does not have a customer program offering points for number of teas you buy. It would be nice if they sold smaller samples of tea so that you could try all of them without having to buy 4 oz.

APPLE CHAI SPICE
Airn Previti (Houston, US)
Tastes great but make sure to measure correctly

My first time making it I did not measure correctly and it was way too strong. Once I tried it a second time though it quickly became one of my favorites. I even made some to go to work and share with a coworker that absolutely loved it

Not my cup of Tea..

Whole family don’t like this one.. so I had to add raw honey to sweeten it. It was just too bitter.

Best Belgian Rock Sugar

I love this to sweeten my tea. Use it for each cup. I even take a small amount with me for when I travel to use. So glad I was able to find this after the previous store I purchased from had closed up for good. I will be back to purchase again and again. Thank you.

MAHARAJA CHAI OOLONG

I have been searching for a while for a great tea to replace my beloved Teavana Maharaja tea. The MAHARAJA CHAI OOLONG from Tealeavz is the one!! Spicy with a slight fruity back note. So very happy with this delicious tea!!!!!

PASSION TANGO TEA

It’s almost exactly the same as the one that Starbucks serves, but I could not seem to find the Starbucks one. I will definitely order again.

MAHARAJA CHAI OOLONG
Rhonda C. (Verona, US)
very good and oh so close

Like so many others, I was looking for the old Teavana blend. I'm not getting strong enough spices, but when I throw in my own cinnamon chips and cloves, brings it a tad up a bit.
Will be buying this again

Thank you Rhonda for your review! For a spicier palate, some people blend in a little Masala Chai to add more clove and cinnamon bark flavor. We will send you a sample to try! Let us know what you think -

MAHARAJA CHAI OOLONG
Christine Farrell (Hicksville, US)
Delicious

Great, but out of 4 teas that I tried this is the only one with real flavor. Others were bland, and ironically decaf. Need to offer this taste with a decaf option. This company was recommended as a Teavana substitute, not even close. Still looking for Teavana like products.

Hi Christine - Correct, rooibos is a naturally caffeine-free tea. For a more robust flavor, add a few more minutes to the steep time or add another 1/2 teaspoon of rooibos tea. Rooibos won't get more astringent or bitter the longer it's infused in hot water; it will just get stronger and more flavorful. The Ginger Turmeric is a tisane, so try adding more tea and time to your steep for that one as well If you are looking for a stronger flavor.

OMG! Finally!

I bought this in my quest similar to Lynne’s situation. Read other review. I’m drinking it now and had to leave review telling you how happy I am to finally found my Teavana replacement. The aroma coming out of the porch is amazing on all of them I’ve bought! But the Maharaja Chai and The Samurai Mate are perfect together. Or separate. I’ve finally found a new supplier! Thank you Tealeavz! Now, don’t disappear or sell out to a bigger company. :-)

Thank you Zane for your loving review! We love the excitement you have found in our tea. Appreciate you!

MANGO BLACK TEA
Amanda (Glassboro, US)
NOT LIKE TEAVANA

It was so bad that I literally had ONE sip and dumped the rest down the drain. It was beyond bitter. No delicious mango lingering on your tongue but a strange aftertaste that was just unpleasant

Hi Amanda,

We are sad to hear you didn't like the Mango Black tea!

There are a few reasons tea can become unpleasantly bitter:
1 - Steeping at too high a temperature, or
2 - Steeping for too long. The longer you brew tea, more tannins are released causing the bitter taste.

(It's also possible that if your water is heavily chlorinated that it could make tea taste bitter as well, but let's assume you were using filtered water.)

Another cause of a bitter tasting cup is using too many leaves. A good rule of thumb is one teaspoon of tea per 8 oz of water.

If you follow these suggestions, it should bring out the flavors that you were looking forward to! But each tea drinker's taste is different, and this particular tea may just not be right on your palate.

Honey has competition!

Really like Belgian Rock Sugar. It gently sweetens with out overpowering.

GINGER TURMERIC TEA
Barbara Dorn (Mesa, US)
DELICIOUS

I was a little hesitant getting the Ginger Tumeric Tea, thinking the flavors might be too intense. No need to worry…it is DELICIOUS! It’s enjoyable with a splash of almond milk, with cinnamon, and combined with the Blueberry Rooibus as well as by itself. Lovely in the morning and comforting at night.
