Monster Chai Hai

Wanna get Hai? Yes, HAI not HIGH!
Well you can get that great pick me up feeling with Monster’s Chai Hai Tea! If you want something that is smooth creamy and can be labeled as a non-carbonated stereotypical energy drink……. well this is an excellent choice.
The Look:  Monster Java blends are distinctly patterned cans, with a gold oversized monogramed “M”. Each of these will have their flavored listed on the top lip of the can. This particular one is a standard 16 oz. size can (about 2 servings) with a Cream & Green stenciled pattern. Monster also included a bit about this drink on the can and I love it. It reads, “Hell YES! Monster can do tea! Not that powdered junk or the latest New Age cure-all, not the Queen has with her crumpets r the tea little girls have with make believe friends. Chen Hen is more like the tea guards drink in a Turkish Prison-tea with sacks not bags! Imported Tea, real cream, Monster’s Spice and energy bleed… Guaranteed to stroke the fires within!” Contents are labeled in black and easy to read.

Taste: Have ever had an Iced Chai Latte, from a well-known coffee house? This is similar, except better! Monster did great on this blend. It has a slight smell of spice, and a smooth creamy finish. You’re just left with the taste of blended nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, and vanilla infused sweet cream. It’s an exotic taste that escapes any other tea taste. There is no after taste of any energy blend, allowing you to drink the product rather quickly. If you love anything milk based, you will love this. The versatility of this flavor is great. I have tried it frozen, heated and straight out of the can.

Does it work: “It’s guaranteed to stoke the fires within?” I’m not sure about my fire, but it sparks something! I normally work 12 to 14 hrs some days and I would have to admit this is has been my choice more times than I’d like to admit. I doubt you will be able to stop at 8oz yet this is what it’s fueled by: Taurine 1,000mg; Panax Ginseng 200mg; Energy Blend (Glucose, Caffeine, Guanana, Inositol, Glucuronotone, Medodextrin) 2,500mg and Vitamins A, B2, B3, B6, B12,C & D. The calorie content is 90, Carbs 14g and sugar 13g. Although, I wished carbs/calories was lower, it isn’t that bad in comparison to some other drinks out there.

Overall Thoughts: If you’re in the market for an energy drink that is not the norm then this is it. It’s more of a liquefied creamy desert with a kick. It’s kind of heavy and filling yet it is a desirable treat anytime of the day. I would choose this over any coffee house version any day. (Especially for the price and transport/versatility). Make sure to look for the green can in the Monster Java Section at your local convenient store to obtain.

I can't find these anywhere. None of the gas stations around my area (Grand Rapids, MI) carry them.

This AWESOME drink has sadly been discontinued. I bought up a bunch from the 99 Cents only store last year and haven't seen them around since they ran out.

Gaaah, I miss this flavor so much, it was my favorite, and I bought it up like crazy.
