Very weak compared to other chai I've tried, both commercial cartons of chai and restaurant chai. I compared this recipe with a couple others I found in a cookbook, and they added whole allspice and simmered the mixture for 10-20 minutes. That should improve the intensity of the flavor but, as is, this is far too weak and bland, even before the addition of any milk.

I have to agree, this is very weak. I add allspice, ginger and cloves and let simmer at least 20-30 mins. Then it varies between ok and good, but not fabulous.

If you ground the spices and add them into the teabag (its what I usually do, then i carefully staple the bag shut) and boil it for a while, the oils from the spices actually blend in with the flavor of the tea. I'm rating it 4 stars because I love the combination of spices - these are my favorite spices, and it's a joy to be able to drink them in tea (whihc is also my favorite beverage.)
