"We had an official taste-off between your recipe & 2 others on zaar & yours was hands-down the best! Very creamy with the perfect blend of spice & sweetness. Now I'm off to prepare gift bags for Christmas; thanks so much!"
"This the best."
"I can't believe I overlooked rating this! I've been using your recipe for over a year!!! This is the best chai one out there. I double the cardamom, since we love it, and occasionally add extra powdered sugar when on hand. I can't tell you how many times I am asked to make this. Thanks for sharing!"
"When I found this recipe I couldn't wait to try it! I love chai. Made up the batch and ended up with a tad more then 6 cups of mix. Gave 5 as stocking stuffers and kept one. Much better then any store bought mix you'll find. Everybody really enjoyed it, however everyone said it could use more spice. Next time I'll add a touch more cinnamon and cardamom. Thanks for posting this one! I'm sure I'll be making more."
"My son happened to mention that his fiancee loves chai tea, so I mixed up a batch as a Valentine's Day 'happy'. She just had a fit over how much better this was than the commercial stuff and begged for the recipe. (She won't need it for a while, though, because this makes a ton!) It's not really my kind of thing because I'm not crazy about cream in tea. I did try a cup, though, just to be sure it seemed okay and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. If you're fond of chai, this seems to be an excellent version. Thanks for helping me avoid that evil MIL image, grandma! :)"
"I have made this for 2 years as Christmas presents for friends and family and have such huge success with it that it will be a tradition from now on. It tastes exactly like Big Train Vanilla Chai to me. Thank you so much!"
"I made this as Christmas gifts for friends and they all raved about it! I tried some made with water and couldn't believe how creamy it was! (The instant tea I used was Lipton's instant iced tea unsweetened)"
