      This recipe makes for a very strongly spiced chai tea just like the commercially available ones. It is very yummy, but for me needs some milk to tone down the heat a bit. Definitely a keeper and something I will make again and again. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your recipe with us, Annacia! Made and reviewed for When it's hot, when it's not in the Diabetic Forum July 2010.

      A very nice spiced chai! The peppercorns really came through, and loved the vanilla too! Thanks! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.

      Just the way I like it - SPICY! I used fresh ginger, sliced thinly then mashed. I also bashed the cardamom & cinnamon. I scrunched up the cloves & peppercorns with my mortar & pestle & added the whole, split vanilla bean. :) I used my Kenyan black tea & didn't strain. The honey was perfect. I prefer my chai with a splash of 1/2 & 1/2. Absolutely delicious! Made for Veggie Swap 1/13.
