Very pleasant taste, not overly spiced as some chai blends can be. I used unsweetened condensed milk because I don't like sweet tea; and it was great! I inceased the cinnamon (I love cinnamon) and decreased the cloves somewhat. Nice recipe Evelyn.
I am so happy to find your recipe! This was my favorite flavor of liquid coffee creamer and now I can only find the powdered version. (Darn CoffeeMate â€“ get me addicted then quit making it. ;-) ) The level of spices is just right to my taste however they did not all dissolve completely â€“ especially the nutmeg. Perhaps I needed to grate it finer. I made a reasonable facsimile of fat-free and sugar-free condensed milk using a tweaked version of Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute and while it is thinner, it is practically sin free. Doing the happy dance here â€¦ ;-)
It's now 12:40 am and I'm having a bout of insomnia. I had tagged this for the 1-2-3 game and it seemed perfect for this occasion. I was right, it's wonderful. I have had the mix (with unsweetened non fat evap milk) for a couple of days. I used vanilla Rooibos as the tea base (don't need any caffeine now!) and it's simply delicious as well as comforting with a slightly over-poured 1 tsp of mix in a mug of tea. Think I'll head back up to bed now. Thanks ev.
Yumm, this is great. It is a concentrate so you have to remember not to add too much, which I did with my first cup and it was a bit overpowering. After I fugured it out and followed your instructions, it tasted really good. I used fat free sweetened condensed milk and have been drinking it in my coffee. Thanks for posting this recipe, would make it again.
