These teas can resemble virtually any flavor imaginable.

Because I really don't care for coffee, I drink Tazo's "Chai Tea Latte" every time I go there. I like it a lot, actually. Not bad.

Tenuki - the site you linked to is very neat!

Awesome chai recipes. I've made some chai with all the spices, but I've settled to finding a chai that has the flavors I'm looking for. Adagio makes a very good chai tea, IMO, called Oriental Spice.

I just made a chai with adagio's coconut tea and must say it was yummy, so I thought I'd share my recipe and resurrect this thread! (after all, chai is great on a cold, wintery morning!!)

1/2 cup water plus 1 cup milk/half and half
To the milk water mixture add fresh ground cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper, and ginger. The amounts depend on your personal tastes. If you like it spicy, add more pepper, etc. Also add 5 cardamom seeds, cracked and 3-4 tsp sugar (again, own personal taste).
Heat until boil, then cover and simmer for a few minutes. You need to watch the pot or it will foam up and you will have a mess. Believe me, it has happened to me on several occasions!
The add 2 tsp black tea. Bring to boil again, cover and take off of heat. Let steep for about 4 minutes. Strain into mug and enjoy.

This makes one large mug of tea. Hope you like it!!
