P&L Summertime Chai is my main culinary indulgence: at a bag every 1-2 weeks I’ve been through 120-150 bags. It’s not only really good, it is *consistently* delicious. The spice blend is just right for my druthers – for example lots of factory made 🙂 chai includes star anise, which I figure is fine in ‘licorice’ jelly beans but I don’t want in my tea. 15 servings is for a normal cuppa; my usual mug is about 16oz so I get more like 12 drinks from one bag. I’ve tried small infusers and the roll-your-own tea bags – just okay. I get the best flavor from this brewed loose in my Finum tea basket or the tea globe my daughter got me at Piper & Leaf. I almost always drink it hot, but it’s good cold too, particularly as an iced chai latte. I use stevia typically instead of the delicious simple syrup other reviewers suggest – both ways taste great.

I generally associate Chai tea with fall/winter because it’s typically made with a strong tea and the spices are all thrown in and pretty powerful on their own. As a previous reviewer noted, all the others taste pretty much the same. And then there’s this – calling it Summertime Chai couldn’t be more fitting. It’s surprising light but still holds those famous chai spices. The ratio of tea to spice is just right too – the spices add to the gentle flavor rather than overwhelm. I haven’t tried it iced yet, but I know I won’t be disappointed.

I love this chai flavor. It is not overwhelming, it has just the right spice to enjoy it iced or hot. I have been using it as a pick me up at the 3pm slump time. It is great with or without adding simple syrup. Definitely one of my top 5 tea flavors!

Nice Lighter Chai flavor. I am a big fan of chai and to me, they are pretty much the same. But, this one is different. Just a tad lighter on the chai spices, which I find refreshing and different. I have been blending with a little simple syrup, some vanilla creamer, and ice in my blender and making amazing frozen chai drinks. LOVE this tea!
