My sister bought me this a few years ago for Christmas and I liked it. She bought me more last Christmas, and I decided to have some last night. After dinner I wanted something quick and sweet and this fit the bill.

If you’ve never had it before, this is black tea powder, sugar, dried whole & nonfat milk (why both I ask myself?), dried honey and natural flavors. Now I don’t consider this a true Chai-mainly because of the tea powder. It does have plenty of other delicious flavors, and tastes like a sweet Chai tea. IMO, it is too sweet, and the black tea flavor is there, but not strong enough.

It is a dessert Chai, and that being said was just what I was in the mood for. It is delicious, and quick. I also prepared two other quick teas, so I could watch the 136th Annual Westminster Dog Show! :)) I love dogs (and most animals), and I watch it every year. So, I began preparing two other teas I’ll review later. I spent the next 3 hours watching the competition next to my dog Lotis. :)) More on him later!

The sweetness is what I didn’t care for in this concentrate either. I like my chai on the spicy side! :p

Yeah, but I do like it occasionally as a dessert, but it is not a true tea.

Is the black tea powder simply made from grinding leaves? O.o

I missed the dog show, I was busy being eaten by our three rescue puppies. I am hoping hubby will fall in love with one or two of them and let us keep them! :) He needs a new canoeing buddy.

I think so Tamm.

I hope he’ll come around Ash!
