Since I’m in a hotel, I can’t prepare chai the traditional way (no stovetop). A friend suggested that I try this as an alternative.

It was okay, not spectacular (didn’t compare at all with making chai with actual tea leaves and spices!).

I had a migraine, so I “got” to taste it again an hour later. Now I can’t stand to look at it. I don’t want to rate it because of that. I’ll try again in a few days.

Have you tried Trader Joe’s version? YUM! I’ll take a mix over a concentrate any day although this is good. My favorite cafe/ice cream shop uses it.

No. The only reason I was trying a concentrate is that I don’t have a stovetop in the hotel room. The town I"m in right now is pretty much the middle of no where – there’s no Trader Joes. I’m pretty much limited to what’s at Walmart.

I bought another chai mix – a powder…Pacific Chai. We’ll see how that goes.

Cofftea

Yeah a powder is what I mean when I say mix. I’m 2 hrs from a Trader Joe’s on a daily basis myself so I drink Pacific’s version when I’m too lazy to make my own. The texture is different from the stove top version but I find the flavor just as good.

poor denisend…your quest for a good chai while traveling is not going well. i’ve had this one before (in the powder form) and it was SUPER sweet…not great by any means but not god awful.

Hope you’re feeling better…
I thought this concentrate was pretty good mixed with the Tazo chai concentrate…the Tazo is more “chai” like and balances out the cane sugar taste of the Oregon chai.

denisend

Shanti – interesting idea, but I didn’t find the Tazo chai at the store. Oh well.
Lena – yeah, the last one (I’m about to log) is a little better.
