I really like this recipe. I know there are people out there who think "Instant- yuck!" but my guess would be they wouldn't even be looking here. I was making "fresh" chai every day because I was hooked and it was a hassle- I like that I can take this to work. I did make some changes to this, but it deserves a 5 anyway because the recipe is a great starting point to adjust for your own tastes and some of the changes I made were for convenience alone.
I do not have cardamom, unfortunately, so I left it out. I also left out the dry milk powder- the first time I made this, I thought it gave it a bad aftertaste, which most instant dry milk powders have, and since it is petty hard to get non-instant dry milk anymore, you might want to taste it before you add it to all your other ingredients. I just added a little more creamer. I also substituted 1 cup vanilla creamer for 1 cup regular and left out the vanilla powder, which can also be hard to find. Lastly, I ADDED 1/2 t salt and about 1/4 t ground white pepper to give it some kick. Yum!
