I made the tea in a saucepan on the stove with 2 c. water and 2 tea bags. I kept the spices as written. I poured the tea through a metal strainer. Then, I mixed the tea with the milk (skim). There was still a little sediment at the bottom of my drink, but it wasn't bad. I agree with others that this is a little sweet. I will reduce the brown sugar next time. Overall, this is excellent! UPDATE: My daughter and I made this again. This time, we put the spices in a coffee filter and tied it shut. We added the tea bag and spices to hot water and brewed it for 5 minutes. We also substituted sweetened vanilla almond milk for the milk and Pumpkin Spice almond milk creamer for the creamer. Excellent!
I'm so grateful for this post, because it's one of the only recipes that don't call for cardamom, which I don't currently have. Also, I love the coffee maker method! Great way to avoid straining. Now for the cons, I thought it was still too sweet, and I only added half the sugar. Also, I don't think it is spicy enough, so I'm going to play around with the spices. If you don't have French vanilla creamer, just add a SMALL splash of vanilla extract. That's what I did, and it still tasted good. Thanks for the recipe!
