Okay so I am a Chai Fanatic and this was my very first Chai tea, and let me tell you I think it is a great into into Chai if you are a) New to Chai b) New to tea in general because you were transioning from coffee. The reason why I say this is because it is more like a supper sweet Cinomminy milky drink that you get when you add water to it. So yes this is a drink that a person that is just starting may like more then the tea from the Bag. If the person ends up liking it is really easy to get curious and want to try other Chai, and Teas in General so for me I love this tea because it opened my knowledge of Chai~! The taste is pretty good too! Like I said on the Sweet side but you can deffinitly taste the chai it is really enjoyable when it is cold!
