This was the first of the Chai Diaries Teas I tried and I was in love at the first sip. I like my tea English style occasionally, it is a bit of a “comfort food for me, so for my next cup I added a little half & half (tho I will use French Vanilla Coffee Creamer when I have it). I like to do this with teas that won’t ‘break’ or separate when “creamer” is added and chai seldom does. You can also use heavy cream or milk, if preferred. However, I always test every new tea I get! I place a small amount of the brewed tea into a small cup or bowl, then I add my creamer of choice and stir, then I leave it for at least 20 seconds to see if it breaks or separates. I never ever add creamer to a full mug of new, untested tea, because who wants to waste a tasty mug of tea by having the creamer separate (aka break), especially if it is a fabulous mug of Chai Diaries Tea!! That would make me cry! Besides Chai Diaries teas are terrific just as they are, they don’t need anything added to make them taste good! For me English style tea is just sort of like a comfort food. So many Chai Diaries Teas to try! Where Do I start?! So glad I checked out your website. My local grocery only carries 3 types of Chai Diaries Teas. Ami, I hope you will keep creating new blends, you truly are gifted and talented! Thank you for sharing your gifts & talents as well as your awesome teas with the world!! P.S. Teas with citrus added are guaranteed to break when dairy or coffee creamer (even a non-dairy one) is added.
Great tea for turmeric
A bit of a bite but it’s delicious
One of my favorites that I was first introduced to at the Northwest Tea Festival.
I love this tea! It has a great flavor. It is one of my go to teas at night to help me relax and fall asleep.

I can no longer drink ANY kind of chai besides Chai Diaries Masala Chai. The flavor is unlike any other and is my #1 drink of choice!! Thank you, Chai Diaries!
I just love this stuff! It’s so warming, and it gets me through winter. Combined with pumpkin biscotti from Trader Joe’s, it’s AMAZING. LOVE what you do!
I love chai and do my best to sample chai’s wherever I go. This chai is hands down THE BEST I have ever had! I has wonderful spicy notes with the perfect amount of sweetness. Also it’s not overloaded with sugar like many others.
I mix this with oat milk, I’m addicted.
Best one yet
The best thing about this tea is that it tastes amazing hot or cold. The soothing blend of chamomile and lavender is the perfect end to a long day. The tea is smooth and delicious. It’s a perfect end of the day night cap, or gift for a friend. The tin it comes in is also super cute!!
IMO this is the best instant chai available. Pretty sure I’m not the only one who feels this way bc it seems to ALWAYS be sold out.
Highly recommend these
This is my “must have” before work!
This is my current favorite, the flavor is great!
I am fond of white tea. Every time I need some caffeine, I drink White Champaign Rasberry instead of coffee. This is a good fancy tea!
I loved the lemongrass scent. I was looking for caffeine-free and no sugar tea. It was a perfect fit for me. Because I am all about NO PLASTIC life, biodegradable tea bags sound too sexy!!!! Can’t wait to try different flavors.
This is my go-to chai in the winter. It’s warming and delicious!
I am pleased with the tea but not so happy with how long it takes to get it.
We LOVE this tea.
I love this tea, a nice light fruit flavor with champagne highlights, great with honey for sweetener
This is the tea that made me fall in love with Chai Diaries over 3yrs ago. I am a loyal fan and love giving the adorable tins as gifts. Great flavor and body and just the right amount of spice
Amazing. My mom got a small bag of this and I tried it and told her we would be needing a much larger bag. It’s fabulous.
This is a tea to delight all the senses. I’m a fussy tea drinker, and, although I usually prefer a black tea, I like to have something herbal in the cupboard for evening consumption. I’ve looked around quite a bit and Chai Diaries’ Blood Orange tea is one of my favorites…possibly my very favorite. Upon opening the tin, the immediate impression of the tea comes with a scent that reminds me of the creamsicle ice cream bars I used to eat when I was a kid. The first couple of times I encountered this tea, the scent, while pleasant, made me a little nervous that it would brew up to be cloyingly sweet and artificial. Not to worry, though. The end product is lovely. The color is a rich red, and the natural orange flavor from the brewed orange peel takes center stage. It’s a very nice tea, and something quite different than other herbal teas I’ve tried.
Cardamom Is The Bomb! I stumbled across this stuff at a World Market over a year ago and I’ve ordered it several times (online) since! It is my go-to drink in the morning…afternoon…or in the evening- I LOVE it soooo much. If you like cardamom- you will LOVE this insta-chai… so give it a try….now! -G. Haney
My FAVORITE! This tea is beautiful from the time you pull out the tea bag and get that amazing jasmine aroma! So crisp and clean you can hardly wait for it to steep and be ready for your first sip. By far my favorite green tea. I cant stop buying it.
Love At First Spice! I REALLY love this premix! I used to buy my Chai mix at Costco but there was so much hidden sugar in it, I had to give it up. Then I discovered this…originally at World Market (but alas, it was no longer carried) and then later, after some searching, online. I have also tried Ginger, Masala, Lemongrass etc — all great– but CARDAMOM remains my absolute favorite!!!
Chai Diaries Insta Cardamon Chai And Ginger Chai. I love the Insta Cardamon Chai and Ginger. It appears that my local store, World Market, is not carrying this anymore, such a disappointment. With the instant I can make my tea strong or lite. Perfect for a rainy day on the couch with my cat and books.
Good Tea. This is awesome, I really like the flavor of this tea. Can not have as much as I like because my doctor says no caffeine.
Purchased some of the Insta Masala Chai at World Market with low expectations because I am picky about my chai. Normally homemade is the only way to go for me but this stuff was delicious!! I am super impressed and no chemicals or preservatives!! My life was just made so much easier. I went through a 10 oz bag in three days so now I am ordering straight from the source.
I bought the chamomile-lavender tisane and it was delicious. It is caffein-free and smooth. I will be back to Gelson’s to purchase other flavors. Perfect for before bedtime.
Love It! I came looking online for this because I love it and now it seems my store only has it in tea bag form. I want to keep getting it in bags so I can make it as strong or weak as I want each day. It is yummy, and so easy – crucial sometimes, lol.
