k.h. Here's what I could find on chai tea allergies from a Canadian website.
I think I'm one of the few people on the planet that makes his hot and iced tea using loose leaf (leaves). I concoct a mixture of Lipton's regular and green (forgot brand name). I make it by the quart, boiling water in the microwave. A little Stevia slightly sweetens it.
Celestial Seasonings makes a mint/chamomile tea, with a little Valerian root. It's called Sleepytime. I think the mint is an attempt to hide the funky taste of the chamomile. NOT very successful, IMO. You might try adding black mint tea to the mix....
Right now, I'm halfway through a (weak) cup of Bigelow's Cinnamon Stick.
If you go to the Stash Tea web site
...you can find every kind of loose and bagged tea imaginable....WITH descriptions! Some are reasonably priced, and some are outrageous, but worth it. They also have tea ware, DIY loose tea bags, cookies, honey sticks, and so forth.. (And 2oz sample bags for $1.50 or so.) I bought a pair of Bodum double-walled glass mugs from them years ago. Never use anything else anymore. I am fascinated with hand-blown glass in any form...
They ship from Portland, OR....don't know if they ship to Canada, but you're a lot closer than I am to Portland! Ask.

If you come into Tacoma by rail...at night...this is one of the first things you see. GLORIOUS!
I have discovered that I can make tea in the microwave; I put Splenda, Tea bag, and the hottest water I can ge from the tap, in a microwaveable glass cup (so I can see how it's doing), and zap it for a minute and a half for 12oz. More, or cooler, water takes a little longer. At first I was afraid the staples in the tea bags would make sparks, so I mostly used Tetley Tea, but I guess the staples in Stash and Bigelow are too small to affect the microwaves, so I've been doing chai and cinnamon tea, too.
Best drink on a cold day!
I just had mac & cheese for breakfast. Delicious. Added a couple of eggs, but was too lazy to add vegetables.
I think my "comfort food for the day" will be mac and cheese. I toss in broccoli, maybe some sausage.
