This is my first Chai tea. Upon opening the packaging, I was welcomed by a pleasant vanilla aroma which felt quite promising. Steeped it for about 4 minutes and added some milk and sugar to it, and I now had a typical Chai tea in front of me. Not surprisingly, the vanilla taste came first, which I was quite familiar of from past flavoured coffee experiences probably. The spiciness came after that, which was not at all strong but actually quite mild for almost any tea drinker to enjoy. The spice did have a slightly toasty side to it as well. Although this is my first and only Chai, I am sure that this is nowhere close to the authentic one brewed from loose leaves with actual Cardamom and spices in it, but this tea was enjoyable for what it is.
