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.

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.
