    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    The spices in Indian chai tea flavor this creamy cheesecake. The topping can be made 2 days ahead. Chill until cold, then cover and keep chilled. Courtesy Bon Appetit... and their photo looks SINFUL!

      I love chai so I tried this recipe. It was delicious. Not to ruin it for you, but I discovered the first time that I tried cardamom that it tastes like fruit loops--this recipe is no exception. This is a fruit loop cheesecake.
