      This was a lovely chai that I will make again. I doubled the recipe but kept the milk the same for personal preference as we are not fans. I also only added 1/3 cup of sugar to the doubled recipe and still found it a touch too sweet - next time I think I will double the recipe and leave both the sugar and milk at the original levels. Thanks for posting! EDIT: I am updating this to 5 stars as this is the best chai recipe on 'zaar and I have tried a lot of them. The only thing I would change is adding peppercorns and ginger next time.

      Very tasty. I agree with other reviewers that it needs a dash more flavor, so I added more cloves and used honey to taste in place of sugar the second time I made this. Also, I added the milk at the end, since I feel the tea steeps better before the milk thickens the tea. Thanks.

      I make a similar version given to me by my friend from India - only difference is that she adds a pinch of Fennel seeds and a crushed Bay Leaf. This adds another layer of delicious flavor. Great Recipe!
