This is a good light spiced chai, quite like Starbucks I believe using the sugar (I used white) called for in the instructions rather than the honey in the ingredients! I'd like to try it with honey another time. This made 3 mugs worth for us. I used 7 green cardamom pods cracked (I loved that this recipe uses a lot as I love cardamom), 1 slice of ginger, 1 cinnamon stick as I thought two was a bit much, 2 cloves, orange pekoe tea bags and rice milk for the milk which I added at the end in order for it not to separate as I found it does when simmered. Made for March Into Spring Tag.
