I think riccilynn is right, you're probably mistaking chai tea for chia seeds which were used in the chia pet plants that sprout over time. It's also the same seeds that you are talking about. You pretty much add them to anything...yougurt, juice, baking, etc.

You can get them online if you can't find them in your local healthfood store. I've seen it on Vitacost and Amazon to name a few...
