My sister and I did not like this as written. Next time, I'm going to use my favorite pumpkin pie spice recipe instead of measuring the spices again (going to use 3/4 teaspoon) and going to reduce the molasses to 1 tablespoon since the flavor was too strong. It was also a bit sweet, so I might reduce the sugar as well. To us, this tasted like gingerbread cookies.

I would rename this Chai Tea Latte. That is exactly what it tastes like! I love it and it is so good!
