    Delicious! Very easy to make,too. I have made this Chai tea recipe with whole milk and also with almond milk, with good results both ways. Thank you for such a great recipe.

    I could have sworn I reviewed this earlier today...This was awesome! I used my mortar & pestle to lightly crush the peppercorns & cardamom pods. The ginger really came through; loved the zip & zing!! I used 2c milk because that finished off the gallon jug. ;) & 4Tb sugar. Delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
