I really Like this Masala. I have tried it many different ways. Neat, with sugar, with 15% milk, 15% milk and sugar, Steeped in milk only, steeped in milk w/ honey, steeped in milk w/sugar. I really like this masala. It has a strong cardamom and cinnamon notes with a strong black tea. Is a great tea for a cold day. If you love a good masala this would be a good start.
