      Thanks Dancer, I have only recently discovered Chai tea and this one tastes great and used ingredients I already had. I had this hot and cold and it was delicious both ways. I used 1% fat milk. Will make this again!

      This was very warm and comforting! I used vanilla soy milk in place of the milk, and it turned out great. I will definitely play with the ingredients, though, because it didn't taste quite like a real chai to me. I think I might try taking out the nutmeg and using cloves and cardomom instead. Still, this was delicious, and I can't wait to try it again... especially as a smoothie! Update: I've made this again using cloves in place of the nutmeg, and personally I thought it was much better!

      I had this as a cold smoothie although it was more like a cold chai latte since my ice cubes weren't completely frozen. I had to add a lot more honey to make it sweet enough. The spices were hard to detect but I still enjoyed it over more ice. 4 stars for how I changed it but still I wouldn't call it Indian chai just cold tea latte. I used allspice in a lesser amount in place of nutmeg because we do not consume intoxicants and homemade almond milk to be lactose free.
