Must confess that I am addicted to the Tazo Skinny Chai Latte Tea Mix, for several reasons...taste and easy of use. However, I am trying hard to eliminate all sugar and the mix does contain cane syrup even though it is the "skinny" version. I also love the Good Earth Natural Sweet & Spicy...thus, I decided to try this Sweet & Spicy version of chai and see if I also liked it. I actually did find it to be very appealing, though I have not totally made the complete break with the Tazo mix, yet. This one does have a nice flavor without an overwhelming dark earthy taste.
