|"Fans of bold flavors will not be disappointed with this mix..."|
To prepare my cup I followed the instructions printed on the back of the packaging. They suggest using one rounded teaspoon of chai with two cups of water and two-thirds cup of milk. I added the water and chai first then brought the mixture to a boil and simmered for 3-4 minutes. I then added the milk, returned the mixture to a boil, and allowed it to simmer for 3 minutes. The kitchen filled with a wonderful spicy aroma. After the final simmer, the resulting liquid was very thick and muddy, and I added approximately one teaspoon of agave.
The flavor of the cup was delicious and spicy, basically a more complex version of the instant variety. I can’t say this cup was perfect, but I think with a few tweaks to the amount of mix, and the amount of milk versus water, this has the potential to be one of my all-time favorite cups of chai. Fans of bold flavors will not be disappointed with this mix, and since the four-ounce bag contains roughly 36 cups of chai, you will have plenty of time to experiment and adjust to your own unique taste.
