Peppery taste that I have grown to enjoy daily

Purchased this tea via Subscribe & Save because it was way cheaper than Tazo and the company responded to an email I sent them requesting the ingredients very quickly and with a most friendly response. (Impressive ingredient list BTW) I agree with the other reviewer that the taste is a bit unusual. When I opened the first of 6 bottles I now own, I did not really like the taste because I was so used to the sweetness and lightly spicy taste of Tazo. However, I am now on the third bottle of 500 Mile and I must say my opinion has changed. This tea is not very sweet (honey is used per the ingredient list), and it has a very spicy kick with definite pepper undertones. Usually, I mix it half/half with freshly brewed green tea and add a splash of vanilla almond milk or coconut milk. It is now my daily tea treat.
So, if you want a sweet tea that isn’t too spicy you will want to stay with the Tazo Chai concentrate. However, if you want to kick up your chai a bit, give this a try. Also, the company (Tao of Tea) has a fascinating website devoted to tea, and makes for a great read if you want to learn more about teas.

Different from their loose-leaf 500-mile chai

I really like the loose-leaf version of the Tao of Tea’s 500 Mile Chai and was looking forward to a more-convenient concentrate version. Unfortunately, this has a very different flavor that I don’t care for (note ingredients for this include black pepper and fennel). It’s okay for chai, but I’m not getting it again and will stick to brewing my own from leaves — which is by far the amazingly-best chai I’ve found!
