For those of you who don't know what chai is, it's tea drunk in India at least twice a day. An common man/women from India, Pakistan or Bangladesh will start their day by drinking it. It's like a drug for us.

chai a hug in a cup. It warms your soul
Starbucks 's Chai Latte is pumped with so much sugar and no real chai spices. In short Starbucks's chai is sweetened milk thats it. I will give 4/10 for starbucks.
