I received this recipe from my sister, who got it from a friend in Alaska. This warming drink makes a great Christmas gift. For friends at work, I bought some cute jars with lids. I placed some fabric on top and tied them with ribbon. —Donna Gish, Blue Springs, Missouri

"This is amazing! I believe that blending the ingredients is the key to a perfect drink every time. My daughter says that this is way better than Starbuck's."

"This sounds really good sans all the sugar which I noticed you didn't put in the break down for nutritional content. That is an enormous amount of sugar! Will be experimenting and hoping to keep the integrity of the tea. Thanks."

"This mix is very good. My husband asks me often to make it. It reminds me of the chai tea cappuccinos that you can get at some of the gas station cappuccino machines but it tastes much, much better!"
