I tried this for the first time using Tazo Organic Chai Tea and following the instructions except for the amount of milk. And I believe I used too much hot water. I'll need to try it as stated next time. Pretty good and a whole lot more affordable than the coffee chain variety Read More

This is far too much to call it as a Chai Latte... More likely a Chai tea, with milk. Read More

I like a stronger flavored chai so I went easy on the milk just enough to give it a milky flavor without diluting it. I also used one packet Splenda instead of granulated sugar. Very good. Read More

This was quick and easy to make. I followed the directions exactly. My only issue with it was after I added the milk to the hot tea it became room temperature. I was kind of wanting a warm beverage this morning. So instead of reheating I just took it one step further and poured it over some ice. Make sure to have a large mug as it will be needed to hold the 1.5 cups of liquid. This was okay but I think I like chai made with tea and spices separately. It's just stronger. This works though if pinched for time and you like Chai. Read More

This is a pretty sweet version of Chai. I made it on the stovetop so that it would be as hot as possible. I brought the water and tea bag to boil and simmered it for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, toss the tea bag and stir in the sugar, honey and milk, heat until hot and then serve. It's my new favorite Chai recipe. Read More

This was a tasty and quick way to make Chai. I read the others' comments about the milk cooling down the tea so this is how I made mine. I put the milk in a mug and warmed it in the microwave. I then placed the tea bag into the milk and poured the boiling water into the mug and let the tea steep. I added the sugar and honey at the end. It was slightly too sweet for my tastes so I cut back a bit on the sugar and honey the next time I made it. I also made it again using Splenda and coconut/almond milk with great results. Read More

I boiled my tea bag in the water to try for a stronger flavor. The tea I used was Stash(R) Chai Spice Black Tea. I used a packet of Splenda instead of sugar and added the honey to taste instead of measuring it out...probably used more than called for but that's how I like it! Perfect amount of liquids for my favorite mug! Read More

Good recipe. However I added cinnamon and nutmeg. It came out a little too sweet so I boiled it and then I blended it in my blender to thicken it up. It came out perfectly!!! Read More

I drink chai tea lattes all the time from Starbucks but this was my first time making one. I think this recipe is a solid starting point and you can change it up to fit your specific taste. I followed other reviewers and warmed up my almond milk in a separate mug. I think added the honey and 2 splend bags to the warmed almond milk. After the tea (Tazo Chai) was done steeping in a separate mug I put the two together. Verdict? It was too sweet! Lol... I added some additional hot water to try and dilute it a bit but in the future I would use less honey and 1 splenda bag. Great alternative over giving Starbucks all of my money. Read More
