Agreed, the 'chai' sold in the US is hyper-sweetened. Chai actually means tea in Hindi. What we call 'chai' is chai masala. A black tea is brewed with a spice mixture and hot milk. In India I bought the powdered spice mix, but it can be made easily at home. It is best to brew your own tea, add some chai masala spices and then sweeten and add milk to your taste. The packaged chai in the US is not healthy.

This Chai Cooler is laden with sugar! Why is sugar not mentioned in the nutritional content? Brewing chai fresh without the addition of sugar, would help this recipe a little.
