I made a half recipe and lightened the milk and sugar (Splenda for me) amount for a lovely cup of Chai that I enjoyed a lot.
I wanted to like this version because it was a quick and easy recipe. I just couldn't taste the spice in the way that I like. I tried a second cup with honey instead of sugar thinking that I might have overpowered the spice with sugar, but it was still lacking something. Thanks for the recipe.

Spicy and warm. I don't usually add sugar to my tea, but the sugar brings out the spicy flavour. Made for ZWT 6
