Received a free sample of this in the mail. My husband chortles and shakes his head each time he sees a catalog or free sample in the mail. I’ll admit the combos of Rishi Tea, Women’s Health, and the latest in concealment holsters and Kevlar isn’t your everyday mix.
Anyway, I didn’t hate this as much as I thought I was going to. It is pretty sickenly sweet and I had to constantly stir my cup due the mix settling between each sip. I smell the spices more than I taste them. I’d much rather make my own chai (but it is time consuming to do it properly). Right now Adagio’s Thai Chai reigns supreme in my book. This isn’t bad if you are seriously craving some chai.
Thankfully got this as a free sample. It was lackluster and obnoxiously sweet. The honey is definitely there, but the milk wasn’t quite right. There was no kick whatsoever to it. Just a very slight hint of spices. Even after I added my own bagged chai tea, the oversweetened latte mix didn’t complement so much as it did completely bury the spices. It does to chai tea what Starbucks does to coffee.
Since it’s the original I will let it slide but since Chai (even powder chai) has come a long way now in the states they need to improve or evolve. Other that it’s “OK”. Had HOT. It was a FREE Sample – eventho – I have had it before – it serves a purpose, I suppose. I just don’t like the aftertaste.
