Steep for 5 minutes, 208°F
For stronger flavor, steep longer.
For loose leaf herbal iced teas, use 3 tsp per 8oz glass and double the steep time.
Herbal teas, technically speaking, are not true teas as they are not a product of the Camellia sinensis plant. They are properly referred to as "tisanes" or infusions, crafted from dried herbs, flowers, leaves, roots, seeds and fruit. Like tea, herbal infusions have been consumed for centuries as healing tonics to lift the spirit and enhance well-being. Our Herbal blends are hand crafted with artisan care and a vast knowledge of how theantioxidant properties and therapeutic applications ofpure, fresh herbs, flowers, and botanicals, deliver delicious healthful infusions that can delight both mind and body.

MY HANDS DOWN FAVORITE!
This tea is so unbelievably wonderful, it's help me kick my nightly cabernet habit, if you can believe it! I steep 3 teaspoons for 7-8 minutes to get that really rich flavor. I rarely add sugar unless I'm really craving a special treat. I've ordered over 10 canisters in 3 months. I'm getting all my friends and family hooked on it as well. Definitely worth a try!! Tea Forté Team: please don't ever discontinue this flavor. I'd also LOVE to see a 1LB pouch in this flavor next fall!

Smooth and delicious
Absolutely my favorite blend. I was pleasantly surprised by the sweet flavor. The combination of flavors are not too strong. The first cup steeped too long and the cinnamon was overpowering for me as I like undertones, but I adjusted the steep time and now it's by far a favorite. Each flavor compliments one another for a lovely cup of smooth, warm tea. I have used it for iced tea and it is very refreshing.

Evening perfection in a cup
I love rooibos. I love Chai. Together they make this is the best decaf blend I've ever tasted! Love that the ginger is toned down to not overwhelm the more subtle spices. Thank you for making available year round and in a canister!

So I am definitely addicted to nice strong cup of chai. I was really excited when I got this as part of a set since I've been trying to ween myself of caffeine. I don't know what it was exactly but this herbal chai was WAY too early for me..like mulch with cinnamon and cloves. Guess I'll be sticking to Bombay chai!

Everyone got it right! This one's delicious!
Can you say,"Christmas in a cup!?" Im sure you can, and you'd be right! Cozy up with a cup of this on a rainy night or cold winter day. I'm a nutrition major, and this is my go to when i'm craving the holidays, but not all the added sugar and calories.

AWESOME WINTER CHAI
I love this Winter Chai and the taste of it!!! I love the lemongrass mix with the spices which is perfect which I drink it in the morning or at night and it is caffeine free too! Wish they could make this bigger size...

I love Chai tea year round. I love this one with no caffeine! I can have it as an after dinner drink or anytime. It is so balanced and calming. That is what I need with two small children.

Winter Chai is HEAVEN!
As a tea-ficcianado, I will say that winter Chai is the most heavenly tea I have ever experienced since I first discovered it 4 years ago in West Palm Beach while vacationing. I am ECSTATIC that Tea Forte is now marketing it year round (and not just at Christmas-time, for special-edition gift packages). Thankyouthankyouthankyou!!!!!!

Oh My God! This Chai is fabulous! And for those of us that can't drink black teas because of the tannis, this Chai is the best!. The rich cinnamon flavor gives it a rich unique taste that can't be beat. One problem.... you can't get in any quantities. Please make this available in larger quantities year round

It is a wonderful chai!!!
YES, please keep this tea year-round in larger quantities! It is a wonderful chai!!!

This is, hands down, one of the best teas I have ever had. I got it in a gift pack this year for Christmas and fell instantly, madly in love. The flavor and the fragrance of the tea is to die for! I am disheartened to read other posts indicating that I may not be able to buy this tea in a larger quantity. This is one tea I could easily drink year round.

I love this tea but wish it were available all year long! How can we convince you to do that? More people might try it if it were more often available. Please! :)

I love this tea but wished I could buy a quantity of it. It seems to be only in a gift set which I got for Christmas. I would love to have it for the whole winter to enjoy.

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
