If you’re someone that still likes to indulge in a carbonated soft drink now and then, but is tired of what the mainstream brands have to offer, then this is probably the product for you. Chai Cola, which, as the name suggests, is a blend of chai tea flavors and cola, is a very unique and well executed product that fits nicely into the super-premium CSD space. The flavors pair together quite well, with the chai flavors making for a smooth segue to the cola flavor. The combined mixture has a complex flavor that’s satisfying to the palate. Notes of cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla, clove, ginger, and tea are easily distinguished from the mix. The product has a moderate level of sweetness, provided by evaporated cane juice. Packaging is a 12 oz. bottle, which they’ve decorated with an old-fashioned styled paper label. While old-fashioned isn’t necessarily what comes to mind when we hear Chai Cola, they’ve done a nice job of creating a brand that exudes a sense of high quality formulation. Overall, Taylor’s Tonics’ Chai Cola is certainly a niche product, but we like the fact that the product clearly has a sense of what it wants to be and does it extremely well. Definitely a product worth trying.
