Big Train, Inc. Mystic Chai Vanilla
There is a measuring cup included, but having some experience with these mixes I used about half the recommended one scoop. One scoop is 140 calories. My cup should be about 60. Forgetting this was a mix, and it did not have to steep, I boiled the water. That meant it mixed easily but also that I had to wait a long while for it to cool enough to start sipping.
This is lightly spiced and very milky feeling. It is sweet but not overly so, at least with using half a scoop. The vanilla is pleasant and not overdone. The tea flavor is a bit hidden but comes through lightly in the aftertaste.
I am not really a chai drinker so I can’t tell you if this is a good example of the genre. What I can say is it is better than Nestle’s Quick or instant hot chocolate mix in the morning.
