Top Review by Baby Kato

I enjoyed this chai tea very much, Makwa. I slightly crushed and bruised the cardamom seeds, fennel seeds, whole cloves, sliced ginger and the peppercorns with my motar and pestle before using. I used oloong tea and orange blossom honey but omitted the milk, its a personal preference only. I find that honey always enhances the flavour of the tea by bringing out all the individual flavours. Thanks so much for sharing.
