Well, I had my first delicious cup of Masala Chai tonight. I just boiled the water, and I used less tea then I normally do. I put in a splash of milk and about 1/2 tsp of sugar into my big 2 cup mug. I was in a hurry, but it was still good.
I'll go back through this thread and try something new next time.
These teas can resemble virtually any flavor imaginable.

Yes it is! As a matter of fact, those flavors are what started this tea thing for me!
You know, I have tried other brands without sugar and it was fine, for me anyway. Normally I don't use sugar at all for sweetening, I use honey, and it was good. Not sure if honey is better for the waistline or not!
