I got this in the mail today from Meghann M who was generous enough to send me some. Thanks very much!

I made this using the stovetop method, which I have never done before. I was nervous, having read some horror stories of curdling milk lately. I could tell I was doing something right when I licked the spoon. Oh boy, this was gonna be good.

This tastes like regular chai to me (which is delicious and super decadent). I definitely taste the vanilla, but the cheesecake not so much. The spices taste fairly muted, so perhaps I should add more leaf next time. It will be interesting to compare the chocolate version of this, which Meghann M also kindly sent.

This is one of the more delicious drinks I’ve ever made. Today has been a good, good day.

Yay for chai success- both in the chai itself and in the prep!

Meghann M

Yay! Glad the preparation and tea worked well for you. I think I best wait a week or so to avoid any milk mishaps. I wish there were more cheesecakey flavor to this. Maybe it will be found in the chocolate version.

Bio

I have recently been forcibly transplanted from Princeton, New Jersey to Burleson, Texas. I’ve been recovering from culture shock ever since. When I’m not dodging scorpions and pickup trucks, I’m a college student, drummer, lover of music and animals, Harry Potter freak, and a vegetarian. I just got a job at a bookstore, which is the perfect place for somebody like me.
