An excellent, high quality chai. The leaf smells so refreshing! I love the spice mixture.

I've tried this one a few different ways and have reached a few conclusions:

1) It's very nice even without milk and sugar.

2) If you want to make a latte, make sure the milk is heated at the same time as the water before mixing in the tea. You can brew this on a stovetop (which I haven't tried) or briefly microwave the amount you want in your mug. If you add cold milk after brewing the tea, it somehow makes the tea taste more *watery*.

3) Though their recommendation of two tablespoons per cup is excessive, this tea nevertheless benefits from a larger than normal amount of tea; 2 teaspoons full sounds good to me. Thankfully, you can get multiple good infusions out of this.

4) 5 minute infusions or even longer generally work great, especially for the latte version.
