Chime wants to be the Keurig of chai tea: Hands-on

At its core it's a simple recipe - water, milk, tea, and spices - but the preparation process can be a chore.

Coffee machines that foam milk are designed to take it to around 65-degrees, far less than what real chai requires.

The brewing process is similar to a super-automatic coffee machine.

Since every family has its own favorite chai recipe, however, you're also free to add your own spices and extras.

Chime has had prototypes in a number of offices - including with Google and Adobe - and Chawla says the feedback has been strongly positive.

Chawla expects offices to be a particularly strong market, where basically Chime has no automated competition for chai.
