    Trick to make less sweet

    Posted by GTO on 12th May 2022

    If you prefer your chai less-sweet, like I do, here is a little trick you do with this David Rio Chai Masala Organic Chai. Not that this is overly sweet. It's actually fairly low on the sweetness-scale compared to many other chais. But I like my chai "hot and very spicy" so reducing the sweet lets me increase the flavor without too much sweet. David Rio Chai Masala Organic Chai dry mix has large and small particles. The large ones are quite a bit sweeter than the small ones and look like organic "raw" sugar. Maybe they are the "Organic evaporated cane juice" - I don't know? Anyway, I use an ordinary kitchen strainer to separate the large and small particles. I use the large, sweet particles for other dishes like ice cream (they retain a good amount of chainess flavor) while I make my chai from the small particles.

    First Time Chai User

    Posted by John Liptak on 12th May 2022

    This brand and type was absolutely delicious. I spooned 3 tablespoons into the bottom of the glass carafe of my automatic coffee maker. I had put 16 ounces of water I that maker which equaled the "4" mark on the carafe. I then "brewed" the plain water to heat it into the carafe which had the powdered chai. When it was finished, I swirled the carafe around to really mix the hot water and the chai. I didn't use milk to make it a latte. I don't have that kind of time I the morning. I can set this up the night before and flick the "on" switch in the morning. I like it this way!

    Power Chai 3 lb. bag

    Posted by JG on 12th May 2022

    David Rio's Power Chai with matcha is one of my favorite chais, and the 3 lb. bag is the most economical choice because it is concentrated, requiring only 1 tbs. of powder rather than 2. However, I discovered that the taste of this mix is somewhat different, and I actually prefer the flavor of the mix in the smaller canister.

    Thank you reviewer GTO

    Posted by Samantha on 12th May 2022

    Thank you to reviewer GTO for the idea on how to make this tea less sweet. I did not read all the way to the bottom of the page where it stated that the first ingredient in this tea is cane sugar followed by maltodextrin, so much for my goal to switch to chai to be healthier. I thought I would just have to throw it away, but I'm going to try straining the sugar out. While the tea is delicious, if your goal is health, you may want to look elsewhere. Lesson learned on thoroughly reading the description before buying.

    Posted by Kristi on 12th May 2022

    I really enjoyed this particular Chai tea. I am a coffee drinker in the morning, but decided to try something new. The flavor was very refreshing to me. I did put one splenda packet in it with the warm glass of milk and tea. It was a nice treat to have..great way to start my day.

    Yummy!

    Posted by Rebecca on 12th May 2022

    My family of four sampled the David Rio Masala flavor of chai. Everyone liked it! One said it reminded him of the holidays, particularly due to the ginger flavor. The others thought it was yummy!

    Medium-strong Chai

    Posted by John on 12th May 2022

    I enjoyed the crisp flavor produced by the combination of spices and their strength, which I would describe as being a medium strong chai. The only issue I have was that the powder did not easily dissolve in hot milk. The secret to effectively dissolve it is to use two ounces of boiling water to dissolve the powder and then top it off with 6 ounces of warm milk. It is wonderful that this is an organic product!

    This was a positive experience hampered only by my indecision as to which teas to purchase. I look forward to receiving my order soon.
