"David Rio Orca Spice chai seems a little softer on the spices and sweetener that the other David Rio mixes. Also, despite including powdered milk in the mix, this gives a bit thinner outcome than the mixes that call for milk (such as David Rio Power Chai and David Rio Organic Masala Chai). I personally would opt to mix Orca Spice chai with milk, or half milk and water for a more ideal cup."
