"These Super Blends are no joke... highly potent spices! David Rio recommendes using 2 tsp per cup. However, this is easily twice the spice load compared to their standard dry chai mixes. Also, the spices so overpower the sweetness here, that their label of 'lightly sweetened' is appropriate. Most American palettes will find this mix relatively UNsweet, and so, you may want to add a bit more, either with the milk (which always add a bit of sweetness) or a sweetened milk substitute, Stevia, or any other form. On the other hand, if you are looking for a very low sweetness in your chai, and a very high 'burn' rate of spiciness, this could be it!"
