"It is like a chocolate chip cookie with a wonderful spiciness to it. the spice isnt bold but subtle! I dont like tea and had never used cardamon for anything before but i am glad i tried this recipe.

Some things i cone differently is that i only had half-n-half since my husband seems to LOVE to drink all the milk the mornign i plan to bake something :) I didnt put it in the fridge, the dough was somewhat sticky but i just put a lil' bitty bit of cooking oil on my hands and was able to easily manage the ONE 'loaf' i made. i suggest making two b/c although they taste great they look a little gimpy...i dont know what i was thinking not making lol. I made more than just 1/4 C. tea and used mebbe 1 Tablespoon extra as others reviewed this recipe said the dough is dry. If you are too cheap to buy a nice stand up mixer (i certainly am unfortunately) your arm may get a little worn out mixing the batter. after mixing the in the nuts and chocolate i suggest using your hands with oil on them to smush the loaves out."

"This was a wonderful fall treat with the spices and chocolate/nut combination. I used Hickory Nuts (my secret weapon in most baked goods such as Chocolate Chip cookies and banana bread as well) and it turned out amazing. I found the dough to be a bit dry as well and had to add an extra tablespoon of tea and then it came together perfectly. I put in a dash of Gram Masala just for fun. I got huge raves on these and no one could figure out the spices and they simply begged me for the recipe from the first bite."

"I found the dough too dry to incorporate all the flour so ended up adding 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. (May be due to living at a high altitude) I also did not refrigerate the dough and it turned out beautifully. We loved this biscotti and will definately make it again. It truly tastes like chai tea."
