I used to love this growing up. Fairly sweet so if you like a more light tea adjust sugar and honey :) or just use honey. Also, some may want to drain through a cheese cloth to remove spices, it does get gritty towards the end. But I myself always leave them in because its always better the longer it sits :)

I love Chai Tea! This was really easy and I really enjoyed it - I did half the recipe though. I had one glass then put the rest in the fridge to sip on over ice. And as per the suggestion, I did omit the sugar. Thanks! Made for PAC Spring '11

This is good! I found this made a 1/2 gallon so submitted a correction, as there is no way the ingredients could make 1 gallon. I made ours dairy free using homemade almond milk. I used creamed honey but felt the need for more sweetness so I did add white sugar. I used 4 Lipton Yellow Label tea bags as I find they are stronger and I don't like overly strong tea. I also removed them before the spices were done simmering. I used freshly ground cardamom, a bit more allspice as I omitted the nutmeg as we do not consume intoxicants, plus the rest of the ingredients. I did serve it to DD (toddler) and I without straining out the spices for our first cup. The second cup was better as the spices had sat in the tea for a while and I strained it for a smoother enjoyable tea. I would advise to strain them out after leaving the tea to sit at least 5 minutes. Or I may use whole spices another time and see how that is. Made for PAC (Pick A Chef) Spring 2011.

Delicious! I quartered the recipe and got two 8 oz. servings. I love iced chai tea so will make the whole recipe during the summer to keep in the fridge. I also used the honey, but left out the sugar, as we prefer it less sweet. Very easy to make, with ingredients I always have on hand. Made for Spring 2011 PAC game.
