    Recently got into loose teas and the Award Winning Original Black Tea Masala Chai is where it’s at! A killer tea for cold afternoons!

  2. Tracilin B. (verified owner)

    This chai is delicious!

  3. Laura F. (verified owner)

    My family has been drinking this amazing chai for at least ten years. We LOVE it! It’s robustly flavorful and booming with good energy. It’s a hug in a cup, and a kick in the pants at the same time – love love!!

  4. Colleen

    This product is great!This tea is much, much more flavorful than the chai tea bought at coffee houses or the box or bag you buy at the grocery store! Plus it doesn’t have all that added sugar. It has a very refreshing flavor also. Great tea for the holidays! I plan on sharing it with my family. Flavor really stays on your palate long after drinking it (which I really like)!

  5. Pamela

    This product is probably the best I have come across for a good masala chai. I doctor it with more spices (I make my own blend out of dried spices) and lots of freshly ground pepper. But, I like mine SPICY. So, I use this as a good base. I think that if I didn’t have my own concoction that I doctor it with, it would still be fine. The blend of the flavors is very nice. I will continue to buy this product. The others available online just don’t compare for quality and flavor

  6. Syed Ashraf

    The masala chai is excellent. I am originally from India, and find most of what passes for Masala Chai to be too heavy, too sweet, and lacking some of my favorite flavors from the traditional masala chai I grew up with. Yogic Chai’s masala chai is light and refreshing while still having the warm, rich taste of chai. It makes an excellent Chai Latte, as we have started serving it in our shop, Coffee Bites.

  7. Frank

    After spending five months living in India and getting my chai each morning from the local street vendor, I have longed to find a suitable replacement in the US. I have tried many Masala Chai tea mixes but have not found any that compare to what I got from Yogic Chai. It is a great start to the morning. I wish it would come in the 8 oz. size. The combination of tea and spices are well blended.

  8. Anthony

    I recently received my first order of Yogic Chai, and was really surprised how delicious it is. I expected the tea to be good, but I’m completely obsessed. I ordered the Masala Chai and Coconut Masala Chai. I like the Coconut Masala Chai, but I prefer the Masala Chai. I’ve been drinking Masala Chai from a different supplier, and really enjoyed it. Not so long ago, I stumbled across the Yogic Chai website and read the descriptions and reviews. I was impressed with the idea that the focus of Yogic Chai was to produce a chai that was closest to the traditional tea. I figured that I should take advantage of the deals being offered around Christmas. I am very glad that I did. The tea that I received is by far the best Chai tea I’ve ever had. Although the prices are higher than most teas, the product is high quality and well worth the price. I will be purchasing my Chai tea from Yogic from now on. Thanks for putting love into the tea you make. I appreciate it!

    Forget everybody else’s attempts at Indian masala chai, including anything in a box or carton. Once you’ve been to India, “birkenstock chai” just does not cut it. I have been to India three times, and the Yogic Masala Chai is about as authentic as you will get outside of India. This stuff is smooth, full-bodied, balanced, and wonderful — an India nostalgia-rush. The only other prepared mix that comes even close is the one by Rishi Tea, but it’s too heavy on the cardamom after it’s been kept warm on the back burner for a couple of hours. The only thing better than Yogic Masala Chai is Yogic Masala Chai with half-and-half, because we can’t get water-buffalo milk in the U.S.

  10. Jennifer

    I also used to think I didn’t care for chai because my only exposure to it was the Starbucks version. Then I found Yogic Chai and WOW! Not only has this chai gotten me off my 3-4 cups per day coffee habit, I feel amazing. I’ve tried 3 different blends of Ricardo’s chai: Masala, Female Tonic, and Immune Support. All are delicious in their own way, and very nourishing and comforting. I look forward to my chai every morning. Over the past few months, my family has experienced the usual rounds of cold weather illnesses – strep, stomach flu, colds. I have remained totally healthy despite lack of sleep caring for sick young children. I really think the Immune Support chai has something to do with that. Thanks, Ricardo, for your wonderful products! JAI!

  11. Kelly

    This is a very well balanced chai! I love making it following the stovetop recipe printed on the bag. I’ve enjoyed it at any time of day, but especially at night as a nice dessert. I love that it’s organic and that I have found the perfect chai for me!

  12. Nola

    I received my chai tea order very quickly, as the company indicated that I would. I can tell that the ingredients are fresh and wholesome. What I’m having problems with is the strength of the tea–I guess I used to weak teas, because this is so powerful that I’ve had a hard time drinking it. I will definitely try using less and less and build up my tolerance for it. Excellent quality product. I will definitely consider purchasing more.

  13. Mollie

    This tea is amazingly delicious! I had some for the first time today at the Global Mala event and indulged in 3 huge cups. It tastes like pure bliss! So much better than coffee and I am afraid I am now completely spoiled and will no longer be satisfied with supermarket tea. I can’t wait to have some tomorrow morning—Thank you for creating this amazing tea!

  14. Laura

    This is the best chai I have come across. I look forward to meeting the chai that does it better, but fear I might have to visit India or at least an Indian home. If you are looking for a great spicy chai with an assam base, this is for you

  15. Jennifer

    Thank you for sharing your love of Chai with me! I’m definitely sharing my love of your Chai with everyone that will listen!

  16. Troy

    The herbs hit you in the way only really good chai can, they remind me of spiced rum, or Hot chocolate in a way. Their warming, and enticing, they burst on the tongue in arrays of spice, and sensation. Assam is normally something I can’t stand, and yet in the tasting I can tell that only Assam could be tasted through the waves of Cinnamon and Cardamom. Its a very front of the face sort of flavor, really working hard at the front of the nose, and the center and tip of the tongue. It reminds me of Gingerbread cookies, and cinnamon sticks in mugs of hot cocoa, and all sorts of other wonderful middle class childhood memories I saw on Holiday specials. I have a strong and abiding sensation that I’ll be doing a little more looking around their site, and a little more ordering

  17. Martin

    I really like a full bodied and spicy chai tea in the evenings and I heard about Yogic Chai from a search on Twitter. The resulting review I found said that this was the best Chai they had ever tried so I decided to give it a try. I am extremely glad I did. The smell of the spices hits you as soon as you open the package. I love the smell of the herbs and spices and they hit you in the way only really good chai can. The smell was so divine I could hardly wait for the tea to steep

  18. Joyce

    Over the years I have grown accustomed to a proprietary blend from a local tea room, or my own mixes, but truthfully, I find these products superior and more convenient.

  19. Lanora

    I love this tea! I am simply delighted with the quality of the ingredients and how smooth the Assam Tea. It is so easy to avoid coffee all together when you have something so much more tasty to wake up to, not to mention the health benefits. I was always looking for a spiced chai that was spicy enough and I am so glad I found Yogic Chai.

  20. Peter

    I have tried various chai teas ranging from coffee shop to many of the commercial chai tea bags and mixes. This product exceeds expectations and is absoultely delicious.

  21. Kathy

    Recently introduced to Yogic Chai by a friend who received a bag of this in a gourmet food box. I have tried many different chai tea brands and all came up lacking. I am happy to say my search is over and all other chai brands has been eliminated from my cupboards! The Original Masala Chai has a perfect blend of spices and the tea is very fresh and very smooth
