- I have yet to try a tea from Yogic Chai that isn't complete and fully satisfying. Review by theresia
There is no need to add a thing, the succession of flavor from the mint, the Maté, and the spices is completely satisfying. It's an interesting combination of cooling/warming.
The Maté, an herb that is gaining due recognition in North America, has just the kick to bring the balance. And, again, I love the high quality, healthful, organic ingredients.
