Copycat Oregon Chai Tea

Copy Cat of Original Oregon Chai Tea - I found this on a bulletin board called 'real food'. Since I love Oregon Chai, I thought I'd give it a try. I liked that they used honey instead of refined sugar, but I'm sure you could sub in sugar or a substitute. Enjoy.

    This is FABULOUS!!! I made it exactly as written. It DOES taste just like the real thing. maybe...even...better!? I doubled the recipe and our family still drank it all in two days.

    I forgot the ginger and I feel it was 4 stars that way but I think ginger would add a lovely flavour so I am not staring this until I make it with insha Allah (God willing). I used the 2 cinnamon sticks out of preference, freshly ground cardamom, halal vanilla paste which I added at the end which contains vanilla bean flecks, I used a little allspice in place of the nutmeg as we do not consume intoxicants, brown sugar (I tried without any sugar to be healthier but felt it would be better with), creamed honey, Lipton Yellow Label tea bags which I steeped to preference in the boiled water before removing and adding spices and simmering, spring water, homemade almond milk plus the whole cloves. I also left the spices in for a while after I added the almond milk but it didn't seem to get much stronger. I may make this again with the ginger and star rate.

    This was VERY good. I used chai tea bags for extra umph! I also used 2 cups vanilla almond milk instead of regular milk or soy. Very flavorful and was delicious both hot and cold. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. Made for IRON CHEF, August 2009!
