    Sharon123's Note:

    Allen Mayer says at his tea house in Ottawa, Canada, they now serve their own chais. Here's how they do it. For a mocha chai, use chocolate milk instead of white. For herbal chai, replace the Darjeeling with 1 tsp. each of chamomile, fennel seed and peppermint. This can be halved or doubled!

      This is the BEST homemade chai I've had yet! I used cinnamon bark so didn't grind it but grinded the other ingredients together. I used red rooibos tea so boiled it instead of just steeped as you get more out of it that way. I used agave nectar, honey and splenda to make it nice and sweet and then enjoyed it cold mixed with milk, cream and ice. Made in honor of Sharon's Husband via

      This is really good although I added much more honey per preference. I made this with Tetley orange pekoe tea bags, vanilla paste, creamed honey & plain rice milk to be dairy free. I will make this again.

      This is fabulous! when i strained the stuff, I put it back in the pot w/more water & resteeped it. Turns out I prefer 1/2 & 1/2 for richer chai. I really enjoyed this. Thank you, Sharon! Made for Aussie Swap 3/10.
