Taylor's Tonics Chai Cola

This is one of those drinks that makes me feel like the end for this site is near.  I mean, how can there be any other combinations left?  Someone has combined chai tea and cola.  

It doesn't really taste like it, though.  Maybe barely, but not the way you'd want it.  The idea isn't completely terrible, but the execution could've been better.  At least the inside of the product is top quality.  Black tea, ginger root, cinnamon bark, yerba mate, cardamon, clove & tea extract, evaporated cane juice…all of which should add up to delicious and spicy.  Well, at least it's spicy.  They also claim to have vanilla in this but I didn't get that at all.

The scent is pretty powerful, like Hallmark votive candle powerful.  That's why it's surprising that it's a little more watery than expected, even though it has a bold flavor.  I suppose that really doesn't make sense either.  It's like the chai part is powerful, although not very chai-like, just spicy, and the the cola part is weak and watery.  

Despite that, it's bizarre enough that you should try it.  I mean…it's chai and cola.

Verdict:  Buy a bottle!
