I made this with milk instead of water – simmer tea in milk for 7 minutes then strain into cups that contain a teaspoon of honey. It was AMAZING! It wasn’t a knock you over the head chai, but a gently spiced cup of warmth and comfort. I absolutely loved it.
P.S. I simmered this but have no idea what the temperature was – so take my “water temp” with a grain of salt. I just kept the milk at a light simmer.
