"David Rio Tiger Spice chai mix is a mild, fairly sweet chai with an interesting yet subtle combination of spices. The directions indicate mixing each packet with 6 ounces of water. 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 Tiger Spice chai with half milk and half water for an ideal cup. While these David Rio chai mixes are all very good, balanced tasting chai, I cannot escape the feeling that they are almost 'dessert' drinks - even though they are not exceptionally sweet. Perhaps it is the richness and finely blended spice flavorings."
