    Very nice. Will make again but will try frothing the milk.  -  11 Jun 2009


    So good and much better than the instant stuff. Once you invest in the spices, also much less expensive than Oregon Chai. Even better with ginger and more cardamon!  -  15 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I wored with a young lady from India who advised me to add a little ginger and kick up the cardomom a notch (smile). This recipe was excellent. I also had to substitute heavy cream for the milk (as the kid used it all on chocolate milk).  -  19 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
