This is a really lovely drink and is the latest 'in thing' at good cafes. It's your normal tea, but is milkier and has a whole bunch of delicious spices added to it. Does anyone have a recipe for this?

I've never tried to make my own but love Stash brand Double Chai.
Here are a few sites for you.

I don't know the recipe off the top of my head, but my dh buys the loose teas and makes this himself. He used to work in a cafe and that's where he learned how. I'll ask him for you. I LOVE it

Chai is a delicious Indian drink. Even though it's the latest and greatest here, I beleive those in India have been drinking it for years and years....
Here's a good recipe I got off the web that I use:
Boil 5 minutes, then steep 10 minutes:
1 Tbsp fennel or anise seed
6 green cardamom pods
1 cinnamon stick
1/4" ginger root, sliced thin
1/4 tsp black pepper corns
2 bay leaves
7 Cups water
Add, bring to a boil, and simmer 5 minutes:
2 Tbsp Darjeeling tea
6 Tbsp honey or brown sugar
1 Cup milk

I love Chai but I'm not really fond of the cardamom.....this is my version of Chai, though I've been told it can't be called Chai without the cardamom...it's Milk Tea....Whatever!!!
6 c water
Bring to boil and let boil 5 minutes. Remove teabags.
1/4 c sugar (you can add more or less to your liking.
1-2 t cinnamon
1-2 t cloves (if desired)
Pinch of black pepper
1-2 t nutmeg (if desired)
Stir until spices and sugar has dissolved.
6 c milk
Heat till hot but DO NOT BOIL!!! Can drink hot or can pour into container
and refrigerate for later reheating or to serve cold.
This will only last a five days MAX in the frig though so you have to drink it fast but that's not usually a problem with me.
