Finally tried this with no water added, and sadly I wasn’t impressed. The flavour didn’t seem to be any stronger and there were virtually no spices to speak of. I think I’ll go back to ordering it the “usual” way next time, with water, since it probably has more calories without and didn’t taste any better.

Cofftea

Really?! Wow. The concentrate always decides to be a selfish jerk when I have it- even when I add mocha, caramel, and vanilla syrups. The bagged version is so much better. You should try it next week:)

Had to run to the store for something on the way to work this morning and there was a Starbucks next door, so I decided to try AmazonV’s “no water” suggestion. Yum. The more I have this the more I like it. Nice blend of spices that takes the milk just right. It’s the same comforting feeling as drinking hot cocoa. It isn’t in the same league of chewy and nommy as the Samovar, but on the other hand one can’t just run into the (every) corner Starbucks and get the Samovar Masala Chai. Life is full of such trade offs. Bumping the rating a hair.

Cofftea

Did you have it w/ concentrate or the full leaf version? I do not like the concentrate unless I add other syrups to it and even then I don’t like it all that much. I wish I could figure out how to do an iced full bag version.

__Morgana__

No idea, I was going potty while they made it. ;-)

Cofftea

If you didn’t specify the sachets I know they stuck you w/ (in my personal opinion) the inferior concentrate. No real tea taste, just spice.

__Morgana__

Thanks for the tip. Wow. So much to specify. Nonfat, no water, now sachets. I used to make fun of someone I knew who always ordered “double decaf nonfat latte no foam” and now… I’m becoming that myself!

Cofftea

My default is always a tall double shot double bag half water half nonfat milk dirty chai w/ 2 pumps each sugar free vanilla and caramel 2 pumps chai topped w/ whip and mocha and caramel drizzles. When I get it iced I switch to 2 pumps concentrate and half ice half non fat milk blended. (other customizations the same) Why would you make fun of someone for ordering something they enjoy? That’s not polite.

__Morgana__

Because it’s a crazy long thing to say every time you order something, and she’s my friend and thinks it is funny too.

Cofftea

I get smiles from Baristas often. Not “Ohmygosh why would you order that?” or “Gosh can’t you just order something simple?”, but “Ok wow- impressive, what was that so I get that right?” My response is usually “Well you do say can customize my drink 87,000 ways” which normally gets us both laughing and then I repeat my order slowly again (if I don’t have it written down for them, which I often do). I’ve only had my drink made incorrectly once… and it was actually a much simpler drink.

AmazonV

lol, yea it can get long and crazy, and it isn’t as good as making your own but it’s great to be able to pop in to a starbucks anywhere in the country (or world) and get the same nice soothing chai – luckily i don’t order normally, i show up and smile, and they ring me up, cough just a weee habit

Rabs

@__Morgana__: I had a wonderful regular customer who would order your friend’s drink and she always called it the “why bother” since it was decaf, NF with no foam. It cracked me up every time :)

As a former barista it really didn’t phase me (and most of my coworkers) when people had lenghty orders. After all, we tend to be even pickier about our drinks ;) The only time I got annoyed was when I worked at a store in the Rockies and a tourist wanted a 195 degree latte. I tried to explain that I would need to drop the temp by 10 degrees since we were so far above sea level. The customer almost lost it, so I made it for him – horribly scalding milk and all. I’ll give him props that he didn’t try to return it :)

__Morgana__

I really don’t mind how long someone’s order is other than mine. I have a hard enough time remembering my own name sometimes. It’s the thought of having to remember to specify all this stuff. When I get coffee at Starbucks, I get drip, and I get whatever the mildest one on offer is. So this whole specialty drink thing is new to me and I feel like unless I come up with a jingle I’m gonna forget it at least the first few times. (I need more sleep and less stress ;-) and being a lot younger than I am wouldn’t hurt either.) Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese….

AmazonV

Morgana perhaps you should get the starbucks application, make the drink “card” (the baristas speak) for what you want then just hand it to them – http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_8PVvSpqz4_0/S8dAYboUojI/AAAAAAAABXI/X8MptIF9UVE/s1600/IMG00810-20100415-1023.jpg as an example – see the cup markings, i pen them on in advance, and can change it to whatever i want

AmazonV

(they used to have white strips of paper you could use and tack to your own mugs, some stores may still have them, they’re like post-its)

__Morgana__

Oooh. Cool. I was thinking of doing something like that but then I felt kind of pathetic about it. ;-)

Cofftea

Morgana, don’t feel pathetic- especially w/ orders like mine they’re greatful for anything you do to make their job of giving you the drink you want easier.

Hubby and I had these while shopping at our local Target. I tried mine with no water, and it was quite creamy. I think it’s much more spicy when it has water added. I think I’ll keep drinking it that way. Or just keep drinking my full leaf bags at home with a splash of cream and a packet of splenda. I haven’t found a loose chai blend I like better than their full leaf yet. I’ve tried a few, just haven’t tried Rishi or Samovar’s yet.

Huge fan always. Seems to taste better prepared with lowfat (1%) milk. Less water, please. Very flavorful drink, all the time. A spicy treat for the tongue. Be sure to try it in soy as well as with Starbucks flavorings.

Cofftea

I love mine w/ caramel and mocha. And bags… it HAS to be the bags. No syrup.

Mark Bao

Yeah, I don’t think my store ever prepares it with the syrup, since the syrup is usually for iced. (Which makes sense with iced.) I’ll have to try it with mocha… sounds delectable! Thanks :)

Cofftea

And no water! And I always get mine dirty.

Cofftea

OH MY GOSH! Caramel brulee (w/ or w/o mocha) and gingersnap are both AMAZING in this!

Mark Bao

I think Caramel Brulee is gone this season :/

Cofftea

Yeah it was just a Christmas thing. Although I just finished a store bought chocolate chip creme brulee coffee creamer.

Funny story. Mom and I went out for dinner w/ my grandparents and I wanted to treat my mom to coffee after. It’s a bit of a hastle getting my chair in and out just for a quick trip and mom had things to do yet tonight so I just gave my order written on a piece of paper (you’ll see why in a bit) for her to run and get the drinks. I ordered a tall double pump mocha, double pump white mocha, double pump caramel, double pump SF vanilla, double pump iced dirty chai Americano w/ whip and mocha and caramel drizzle. The poor barista just kinda chuckles and says “I think we’ve made this before” and dubbed it “the works iced Americano”. It’s bad when you’re known by your drink and you’re not even the one ordering it! This really is not as good as it could be. I wish the chai concentrate itself was better. It’s kinda like ordering a fat free sugar free brownie instead of the full fat and sugar version lol.

WOW that is one heck of an order. But it sounds REALLY good!

It would be if Tazo concentrate wouldn’t be so horrible.

It’s been FOREVER since I had one of these, but with the snow coming down, I decided to go for it. Yum! I know it’s not real chai (I swear, I am pretty sure I saw them squirt syrup then hot water before adding the soymilk… no tea in the mix that I witnessed), but it’s real delicious! :)

Janefan

I’m by no means a starbucks junkie, but I’m pretty sure they use a concentrate for both the chai and green tea lattes. looks like there’s some brewed tea in it: http://www.starbucksstore.com/products/shprodde.asp?SKU=623300

laurenpressley

Hmm, maybe they had that in a squirt bottle with the syrups… I’m glad there’s some tea!! :)

Had this at Starbucks today, and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was. A little too cinammon-y for me (I like my chai’s more spicy), but overall an enjoyable cup.

Cofftea

Did you have the whole leaf bagged version or the concentrate?

Karsh

Knowing Starbucks, I think it was the concentrate.

Cofftea

I always get mine w/ bag- tall, double bag. Not only is it cheaper, but other sizes don’t give me the flavor ratio I like.

Picked up one of these iced because of Starbucks’ free coffee giveaway. Normally I don’t spend so much money on something I could probably make at home, but I love chai and was having a craving. The tea is very strong, even with the milk. It was gone in minutes.

I’m so surprised that I like chai as much as I do — the spices do NOT appeal to me in any other kind of dish or drink, but somehow, chai makes it work. And I loooove this particular chai latte — it’s probably my favorite of all the chai I’ve tried. It’s warm and soothing and pretty much what I think heaven probably tastes like. LOL

Just about the only thing I get at Starbucks! I am a soymilk drinker and I find this is one of the better soy chai lattés out there.
