Skinny Chai Tea

This recipe is from scratch and has much less calories than the commercial brands. From Kathleen Daelemans' Getting Thin and Loving Food! I have made this using soy milk and almond milk. You may also add 1 star anise and 6 allspice berries. I have also tried using different teas, such as green and herbal. If using tea bags, try about 4. Smells as good as it tastes!
