This is a nice chai. Not too sweet which is good. The spices were fine however they left sediment in the bottom of my mug. I used a regular Yellow Label orange pekoe tea bag and since we are dairy free I used homemade almond milk and did not have the sliced almonds on the side, which I think may be meant to go on top. It was good with the almond milk but I was careful not to boil again with it or the honey as it may separate being dairy free and you are not meant to heat honey up. I did use allspice instead of nutmeg as we do not consume intoxicants. Rather than simmer the tea bags 2 minutes I steeped it the same amount of time.
