LOVELY tea that hit the spot! The spices are spot on and love the fresh cardamom in it. Homemade chai beats storebought any day, where I believe will change the hearts of those who claim not to like chai. I was one of those folks. Thank you, WhatamIgonnaeatnext for sharing this with us! Made it for Billboard Tag.
