Keurig Kcup Vanilla Chai Tea is a flavored black tea brought to us by Bigelow. Bigelow is a family business that has been creating delicious artisan teas since 1945. Bigelow is an innovative company being one of the first to jump on the powerful Kcup bandwagon.
I happen to adore Chai tea. I love the spicy and sweet combination that leaves my taste buds happy and my sweet tooth satisfied (without any calories!). Who could ask for more? I sip Chai pretty much all day in the winter months to stay warm and keep from snacking.
Vanilla Chai Keurig Kcups were released to certain markets about a year ago, I could not wait for it to make its way to our warehouse. The day has finally come and I am now happily enjoying Vanilla Chai on a regular basis!
I brew all of my Kcup teas on the highest water setting of my Keurig. I tend to prefer my teas a bit watered down and I enjoy a nice full mug. In fact, I have been known to get a second brew out of my tea Kcups, there is always enough flavor left for me to enjoy a second cup!
The aroma on Bigelow Vanilla Chai is striking. A strong smell of warm vanilla fills the air the second I hit brew. Followed by very slight spice accents.
The taste of vanilla is not quite as strong as the smell and I am glad. I hate when flavors are overpowering ruining the integrity of the original product. A classic black tea taste is accented with sweet spices and smooth vanilla. This tea is extremely pleasant to drink and the flavors melt together even more with a dash of cream.
I would recommend this tea to Chai drinkers of course as well as flavored coffee drinkers. Dark roast fans, I don't think this is the one for you. If you don't like flavored coffee this is one to steer clear of as well.
