I made this for my mom and she loved it! I simmered it for about 20 minutes more and it was delicious! If you don't have peppercorn, just use 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper for each whole pepper corn.
Excellent recipe! The only change I made due to being a diabetic I subbed Splenda for the sugar. Also, no straining necessary if you use a tea ball infuser. Cannot wait to serve this on card night. Yummy recipe!
I need to begin this review by saying that I love spicy Chai tea either hot or cold. I gave this recipe 5 stars because it just is a 5 star recipe! I used the pink peppercorns, because that is what I had in my pantry. I know that the pink peppercorns are much more mild than the black peppercorns. I used skim milk, because I had it on hand. I used the exact amounts this recipe called for and I am so delighted with the outcome. I normally spend about $3.50 in the grocery store to buy a good chai tea that is cold for my drive home if I am in the mood to treat myself. I am now going to make this recipe and use the bottles I have saved so I can grab one out of the frig before I set off on a long errand day. Hope this helps....
I have always used a powdered mix in a big can from Sam's Club. Lately I have been experimenting with 'from scratch' recipes which I find very good! I will be making these often but will keep my can around for a fast fix. Thanks everyone....
