"Very pleasant taste, not overly spiced as some chai blends can be. I used unsweetened condensed milk because I don't like sweet tea; and it was great! I inceased the cinnamon (I love cinnamon) and decreased the cloves somewhat. Nice recipe Evelyn."
"I am so happy to find your recipe! This was my favorite flavor of liquid coffee creamer and now I can only find the powdered version. (Darn CoffeeMate â€“ get me addicted then quit making it. ;-) ) The level of spices is just right to my taste however they did not all dissolve completely â€“ especially the nutmeg. Perhaps I needed to grate it finer. I made a reasonable facsimile of fat-free and sugar-free condensed milk using a tweaked version of recipe #104863 and while it is thinner, it is practically sin free. Doing the happy dance here â€¦ ;-)"
"It's now 12:40 am and I'm having a bout of insomnia. I had tagged this for the 1-2-3 game and it seemed perfect for this occasion. I was right, it's wonderful. I have had the mix (with unsweetened non fat evap milk) for a couple of days. I used vanilla Rooibos as the tea base (don't need any caffeine now!) and it's simply delicious as well as comforting with a slightly over-poured 1 tsp of mix in a mug of tea. Think I'll head back up to bed now. Thanks ev."
"Yumm, this is great. It is a concentrate so you have to remember not to add too much, which I did with my first cup and it was a bit overpowering. After I fugured it out and followed your instructions, it tasted really good. I used fat free sweetened condensed milk and have been drinking it in my coffee. Thanks for posting this recipe, would make it again."
