Please bring back the original chai tea concentrate! The new formulation tastes watered down and too sweet! It no longer has that spicy addictive kick that most chai tea drinkers love! It has been a staple in our household for years, however, due to the new formulation, we will no longer be purchasing this brand of chai tea.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Like many other reviewers, I have to agree - the new formula is really not as good as the old. When I got the tea delivered and noticed the box was different, I compared the ingredient list. "Phew," I thought, it's the same. However, the taste is NOT the same. I also did a side-by-side test, as I had some of the old formula left. For me, the new tea is sweeter and more cinnamon-y (my least favorite chai spice). I have been drinking this tea daily for years and just ordered 12 boxes.. However, I'm going to start looking for a new chai now. So sad.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Not My Cup of Tea

We loved Tazo Chai! Daily it was consumed in our household, and we generously shared it with friends and family alike. Sadly, this is no longer so. Your new formula cannot hold a candle to your original recipe that was such a perfect blend of spice and sweetness. What is now sold is disgusting and entirely too sweet. Why change what was a time-tested, solid recipe?
Unless you return to your former recipe, we have discontinued purchasing your Chai.
No, I do not recommend this product.

As a (former) Tazo Chai Latte lover, I am truly disappointed with the new recipe. I have since switched to another brand when buying for home (which is different, but more similar to Tazo's old recipe) AND comes in a SUGAR FREE free version with great flavor!
I have also stopped ordering Tazo Chai at the you-know-who major coffeehouse retailer, and it's a shame Tazo had to change something that didn't need changing, and can't keep up with the competition for healthier choices!
No, I do not recommend this product.

I agree it's a little too sweet, But I am so thankfull it's NOT sugar free! All these sugar substitutes sadly give me Migrains, and this is not uncommon, not too mention that they are not as healthy for you, as the companies want you to think... better to just cut back on the amount of sugar added, as the old recipe had. It was Great as it was.

It's the Orignal Oregon Chai, and it comes in Sugar Free and tastes great. They also have Vanilla, but it's not Sugar Free.

Old recipe vs New recipe

I purchased this chai tea concentrate in bulk. I used to get it at a large warehouse store in a 3 pack. I bring it as hostess gifts, include it in gift baskets, share with friends and neighbors and just to have at home.
However, I am very disappointed in the new recipe (not to mention the carton). It is not as flavorful or appealing. So much so, that I am actively looking for a new brand to change to. I am sorry to have to, but the new recipe is not as good tasting, or quality. HUGE disappointment.
Thank you for the time it was spectacular--I will miss it.
...Please bring back the old recipe

I would have given this a 5 star review prior to them changing their recipe. Now it's watery and not near as spicy. I add cayenne pepper to it. And it's WAY too sweet. In a day and age when everyone seems to avoiding sugar, why make this sweeter? You can always add a little sugar if you like it sweeter. I cant take it out once they've added it. I won't be buying it anymore unless I see "original recipe" on the box.
No, I do not recommend this product.

It really is a shame. It was delicious and one of my very favorites. Heat it up with a little cayenne and add some half and half and it was wonderful. Now it's just watery and sweet and not at all spicy. Yuck!!! What a disappointment.

Please bring back the old recipe.

I live in Oregon and we have the decaff at our Fred Meyer store. You might check with Kroger if you have one in your area. They may special order it for you if they can.

Although they don't have it listed on this site, I purchased this in decaf from my local grocery store yesterday. I see you're from Virginia and I know the store I was at doesn't have locations in Virginia. But maybe you can ask around?

the service was excellent
the shipping time was exceptional
and when I opened the box to find the sugar candy stir sticks I thought that was really a nice gesture
I have never ordered anything on line and found a little extra goodie inside.
Thank you

Although I still really, really like this Chai better than others, I have to agree with the person who wrote that it is too sweet now and not as concentrated. What happened? Can one get the old recipe?

The old recipe had it perfected. This new recipe is missing some key tasty ingredients, leaves after taste like artificial sweeteners might. I will be looking for a new chai to love.

The new formulation is less concentrated, too sweet and just overall was a change for the worse. There are reasons I have never liked Oregon Chai concentrate, and now Tazo tastes just like theirs! I have loyally drank a glass of Tazo chai every morning for years, going out of my way to find places that sell it. Now I am searching for the old formula only. Please change back!
No, I do not recommend this product.

"Used to" is the key here. I also want to share this delicious concoction with other tea lovers. The new recipe has ruined this once wonderful, tasty treat for me. I won't be 'selling' it any more or buying it anymore. Sadly, a quest for a new fave is underway....

The new box/formula has less ginger, cardamon, cinnamon, and no honey, and way too much vanilla with added sugar. Too sweet, not spicy. Not good. We'll make our own from now on unless you return to original formula. You messed with a good thing and made it worse.Before these changes, we gave it 5 *****Stars

I completely agree. I just created an account on this website just so I could leave the very same feedback. Plus, the new formula is overall less concentrated! I hope they change it back (and soon).

This was wonderful on a cold morning...a nice break from hot chocolate. I made it with lowfat milk for a healthier treat. The only draw back is that it has a shelf life in fridge for 7 days. With only one person drinking it, it was difficult to use up in those 7 days!

So after reading reviews on the Starbucks website about this product, I was still a bit hesitant to order. It seemed like 25% of the reviews claimed it is a watered down version of the Chai Tea Latte found at Starbucks and did not have the full flavor. Now granted I mixed a little over 1/3 milk to a tad under 2/3 tea (just to be safe in case it was weak). I am proud to say that this is definitely, without any doubt, 100% Starbucks flavor!! Its not weak or watered down and has that heavenly spicy flavor I've grown to love. Needless to say I'm placing another order and stocking my pantry. Thank you Tazo!!!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Well I also compared the two products and the new one is by far weaker, I use twice as much. I am totally disappointed and I am currently looking for a different product. I dislike the new Tazo it is totally water down.

I would have to agree that the taste is now weaker with the new package. I have been drinking the original formula every morning for about five years now. I just tried the newer container and noticed that a few of the ingredients have changed order when comparing it to the older container. It is much weaker and not much of a spice flavor. Disappointed in the change.

I just received my latest shipment of Tazo Chai Tea and after reading the "new packaging, they changed the ingredients, weaker than before" comments, I did a side by side taste test. Since I still have a box from my previous order (before it changed) and now the new ones, seemed like a good time to try them both and see if the reviews are correct... No change other than the packaging. Same flavor and taste qualities as before. Thank god! Because I just received 8 boxes in my order and would be very unhappy if it was as different as others have posted. Enjoying a cup now, thanks again!

The changed the packaging and they changed the ingredients, it now takes twice as much to get some what of the same taste but still not like the other formula. Changed packaging, changed ingredients, and the price increased. I guess that's the American way these days. Very disappointed that they cut ingredients and made it weaker.
