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.

I have been on a huge chai tea kick lately and have been sampling all that zaar has to offer. This was a nice mild tea and I definitely like the addition of ginger (which I doubled and am glad that I did) - it gives it a nice flavour. I also like the fennel seeds but think overall it was missing that oomph that you normally get in an indian restaurant. Thanks for posting!
