Chai tea is one of my favorite warm drinks, but so many of them are too sweet and artificial tasting. This chai is a perfect mix of spice and sweet. It is delicious!! Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is definitely a keeper!!

I agree, excellent mix of spice and sweet. It smelled like way too much nutmeg as it boiled (I am not a huge fan of nutmeg), but the recipe as is actually turned out amazing! I added the tea bags only in the last 4 minutes of simmering since I usually steep my tea 4 min.

Wonderful!! Kids have been into my secret, pricy stash of store-bought chai mix & knew I needed to find an easy, cost effective recipe I could make at home. Tried another recipe on zaar today & it just didn't compare! The hint of orange from the tea bag was so unexpected from the traditional chai I've had. Even the kids loved it! (which was the whole idea!) I did use decaf tea since I knew I'd have to share with them (and it was already past their bedtime!) Only problem I had was straining the spices- my coffee filter kept breaking. Next time I may find a pouch/mesh bag to put them in while simmering. Thanks so much for my new "go to" chai recipe!

I'm not sick, so can't speak for its healing effects, but this chai is very good.

We make something very similar every weekend. It is just so comforting and lovely on a cold winter day or when you are sick with a stuffy nose and sore throat.
