I was browsing my teacher’s tea basket and found this instead of the tea I was looking for. So I decided to pick it up and make it for dinner.
I wasn’t sure how to make it so I just dumped it into a mug of hot water and stirred in the powder until it was dissolved. Because I wanted a cooler drink with my meal, I then dumped the mixture into a 16 oz glass filled 1/4th with milk.
It was really interesting. The milk made it very creamy. I thought it tasted like a pumpkin pie. It was good. I would probably have it again but not very often. It was almost too sweet for my taste.
Meh, on the borderline of yucky. This is almost too sweet (and I like my sugar with tea and cream). Hardly any spices. Actually, this tastes like sugar cane flavored milk with a hint of tea and honey. Yuck. While I was pouring the mix into my cup, it smelled like Arizona sweetened Iced Tea….:O
I haven’t had it in a few years, but I remember the Tazo chai mix being much, much better than this.
Made a chai latte with this chai concentrate for the first time last night.
It was good. Better than I presumed it would be. But… I’ve had better.
I’ve had much better.
Quite sweet. Rather mellow for my taste in Chai. And, I knew something was wrong right away when I saw how watery it was, as it poured out of the box.
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.
