So disappointed in this - I love coconut and I love chai, but this was almost undrinkable. It tasted like soap, and a bit chemically. Left a weird, soapy aftertaste. I mixed as instructed with 10 oz hot almond milk. Could there have been something wrong with the batch I got? It was actually somewhat shocking how bad the taste was.
Hi Robert, I'm so sorry to about your experience with this blend. This is definitely not normal, but after some investigation, we've discovered that lauric acid (naturally occurring beneficial fatty acid in coconut milk) can actually taste soapy to a some people and there's nothing off in the blend. We're looking into this further. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to give something else a try that doesn't have coconut milk powder in it.
I was excited to try this, especially as it was touted to be coconut chai latte flavor which sounded lovely. It even smelled really good when I poured the powder out. Unfortunately the first sip of it made me gag. It literally tastes like soap and I had to add a big gob of honey to it. Unfortunately, it then just tasted like sweet soap. I get some chai/chocolate notes but the soapy flavor is pretty overwhelming. I bought two packets, so I might try the second batch with warmed coconut milk instead of just hot water. Hopefully the nasty flavor is at least worth it and helps me get through my math class...
Hi Meg, thanks for leaving us feedback. I'm sorry about your experience with the Brainiac. I'd like to look into this further because it definitely shouldn't have that taste. I drink this one everyday and want to make sure you have the best experience with our products. I'll reach out to you to figure this out.
Great mixed with matcha
When I tasted Brainiac Chai for the first time, I felt I'm in Cloud 9 (literally). I guess I shld. say I'm in a high spirited mood. So if you're looking for a drink to stimulate your mind, you should try this one. I give it a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
