Maybe it’s this brand but I’ve never gotten rocks or twigs in mine. Just a scoop and chia seeds. The seeds mix perfectly in my shakes and I can’t tell that they are there. I can’t recommend these enough. You won’t be sorry!
There is no spice to it. Chai seeds do have a mild, nutty flavor and are hard/crunchy if they're not added to a liquid. This seed is for adding fiber to your diet and good in smoothies, oat meal, or to make a pudding.
