I usually drink a Celestial Seasonings Sweet Coconut Chai if I am craving chai, but I just found this in my cupboard and thought it would make a great chai latte. I steeped it extra long (5-6 minutes) since I wanted the stronger flavor. The scent of the tea bag itself lacks the scent of typical chai, but did have a strong spice. The brewed tea was pretty much more of the same. It didn’t taste like chai, just a mix of different spices with a very minor hint of chocolate that you have to strain to taste. The predominant taste was the spice mix, which just did not taste right. I added some creamer and a bit of sugar, but the flavor did not improve. I was only able to have a few sips, before I started dreading the next sip. It also did not sit too well with my stomach. Overall, very disappointing.
