"I loved his recipe. I did change a couple of things. I steeped the chai tea bags in simmering milk instead of water, I added some cardomon, cloves, cinnamon,and ginger to get a speckled effect. I al..." See moreso added two tablespoons of powdered meringue to get a stiffer consistency. Yum!"
"The flavor is excellent when using Stash's Premium Chai Spice Black Tea. My only gripe is that my batch turned out a bit runny and has more the consistency of the icing you'd find on cinnamon buns.

For those wanting a truly yummy chai flavor, might I suggest trying to work with the powdered chai mix from Tasteful Simply? It's called Oh My! Chai, and has been my absolute favorite chai of all of the various brands I've tasted. The fact that it is a powdered mix instead of tea bags might work to the advantage of stiffening the mix a bit too. I would have used it today, but alas, I am out. - I am willing to give this recipe another try."
