    It was weak tasting at first but after sitting for about 30 minutes with cinnamon sticks it was really great. I also used star anise while simmering.

    I agree with the other review. It was very weak and had no flavor. We are big chai tea drinkers in our house and were so excited to make this, but it tasted like watered down chai. Trying to redeem the tea we added more sugar, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and allspice. This helped, but it was still watery and flat. I think this would be better if you cooked the tea and spices directly in the milk instead of the water. The water made it too thin.

    First, the preamble. I used all ingredients as specified. However, I used 2 family sized tea bags for the 6 cups of water because the recipe does not specify and I assumed it referred to single cup size bags. Having said that; it turned out weak with little over all flavor and very little coconut flavor. To say the least, I was very disappointed. I may try it again with 6 family sized tea bags even though that sounds awfully strong.
