    I used to love this tea, I've ordered at least 5 loose leaf canisters of it, but in my latest order the vanilla has become overpowering. I can't taste anything else. I'm sad to have lost one of my favorite teas.

    Bring back the old blend

    I have to agree with other reviewers here - the old Bombay Chai was one of my favorites, but the new blend isn't as good. It used to have a nice aromatic spice to it, but updated blend has too much cinnamon and vanilla in it and tastes generic.

    Not as great

    This use to be my absolute favorite tea! The smell was heavenly and the taste was even better, I guess my store ran out of the original tea and I now have the NEW version..It's not even close to the original, it's just okay now. I'll have to find a new favorite now.

    Nothing Special

    I was hoping this would be a replacement for my Oprah Chai tea by Teavana. It is very bland and not at all the robust spicy tea I was hoping for.

    Miss the old version

    The Bombay Chai was my reason originally for purchasing tea from Tea Forte. I loved it so much, 2 yrs ago, I purchased the 1lb bag! Unfortunately, I ran out and when I went to reorder, the 1lb bag was no longer available. I ordered the canister and to my surprise and the tea had been changed. It originally had a nice spice kick to it making it unique and different than other brands. Now it seems to be more cinnamon and tastes the same as every other brand of chai tea. So disappointing.

    Lacking a punch

    I was so hoping this would be the answer to my search for a bold, spicy chai. For my taste it's on the weak side despite double bagging and steeping for 4-5 mins.

    The spice assortment isn’t my favorite.

    Warm and cozy

    A nice chai, but not my favorite simply due to the spices selected. I do NOT like an over abundance of cinnamon or any hint of all-spice or too heavy in cardamom.

    I like it...but it needs to be available in single steep form. I love chai, but it is easier to the steeps than the canisters.
