Great recipe! Tastes just like the Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks. I found that adding the honey at the end is much better as boiling the honey leaves a bitter taste that was pretty strong.

I had to double all the spices, then it was delicious!

Really good! Everyone enjoyed this, even the kids. I only made two changes - one was using half the amount of honey and then adding in some stevia to keep it sweet and lower the calories. The other change was using unsweetened almond milk.

This was not good at all. I make chai about three days a week. This was the worst recipe by far.

It turned out nice, but a little watery. I would suggest more milk and less water. Close in flavor though.

This taste almost exactly like Starbucks! I love the fact that by making it at home you can make it fat free, sugar free or caffeine free. I opted for sugar free using splenda instead of the honey, and decided to make it even RICHER by using half 1/2 & 1/2 for the milk. It was outstanding. To give it more of the "coffeeshop" texture, after warming it in a suacepan, I took my stick blender to it to whip it frothy. You have saved me TONS of money...thank you!

This is good and creamy and I even used Rice Dream to be dairy free. I did find the honey flavour a bit strong but it may have being the actual honey I used but I think I would prefer chai with white sugar. I made mine differently as to not boil the rice milk from a previous experience of separation. I liked the subtle flavour in the way I did it. I put all in the pot but the milk and brought to a simmer. I used Lipton Yellow Label Tea bags and I find they produce a stronger tea than usual so I left it exactly two minutes. Next time I would like to use white sugar and also try with a good local honey sometime too (the one I used was a regular unorganic, not a local one) I will steep the spices in water for two minutes first and then return to a boil and add the tea bag and again steep two minutes (I suggest more time for other tea bags) Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens Round 01/10.

We love this! I only had whole cloves, so I just threw in 4, but it was perfect! Thanks for posting this and saving me oodles of money by not having to go to Starbucks for my Chai Tea

Great and easy recipe! Thank you so much! :) I only had cardamon pods, used 4 (crushed) and it turned out fine.
