A recipe I found on website. There are several other chai recipes posted to this site, but none have quite the lineup of spices that are included in this recipe, which I really liked a lot.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place water, half and half, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and cloves in tea pot or saucepot and let reach a low boil. Stir well and let boil 2 more minutes.
  2. While still boiling, add the tea bags and let it reach desired tea strength (and color).
  3. Add sugar as desired, and serve hot.

This is a great Chai! The spices are perfectly balanced. I used cardamom pods, which I think make a huge difference. And, used whole milk instead of half n half. I like this really well when chilled and poured over ice! Thanks for posting! Made for FF&F Best of 2014.

great blend of spices - perfect creamy chai flavor. I but this in the fridge and enjoyed iced chai for breakfast.

What a yummy treat! I had a dental cleaning right after work. I walked in the door and decided that I needed some sort of treat and this was perfect. It's cold out, and I'm curled up on the couch sipping this flavorful tea. I cut the recipe into 1/3 and used almond milk instead of the half and half milk and opted not to add the sugar. It's still quite a treat! Thank you!
