    :)Deborah's Note:

    A rich and flavourful tea. Bringing the liquid to a boil twice after the milk has been added seems to make it a richer chai tea.

      There is no comparison between this cup of Chai Tea and the Chai I buy at the coffee shop - this one is so much better. I agree is was extra work but worth it. I found the combination of spices delicious. Made for PAC, Spring 2008

      I think this might be the best Chai I have ever had. I used 2% milk and replaced the sugar with Splenda and the tea was Earl Gray Vanilla. It was perfect on this cool and gray Fall morning. The only reason that I didn't give this 5 stars is because of the time it takes. I'm spoiled and like to have tea pretty much when I want it. I didn't mind all that much on this Sunday morning (but I had a cup of the Earl Gray while waiting). The spice in this is full, rich and potent but it comes together in a very happy marriage.
