LOL. Next time someone offers you Chai you can reply "Yes I'd love some tea" "Chai" in over 30+ languages simply means "Tea"

Thanks Ladies. Didn't think calling chai tea was so hysterical. I used a combo of the two bags to get a really spicy flavor.

Have you added whole cardamom pods to it? They give any hot drink and really nice flavor. I will add mine to the water and tea bags and let it simmer for about 10 mins (crack the pods open a bit before you add them to the water) add your ip mix to your desired amount of tea and what ever other seasonings/spices you like and it is so yummy :)

You are so welcome. IF half and half or milk was allowed on PH1 (more than 1 oz) you can heat the milk separately in a pan and bring it to almost a boil then add it to your tea and sweetener if desired.

You can also make pink kava (pink green tea) you take loose green tea leaves, abt 1-2 tbs cashews, cardamom pods all into a pan of water, bring to boil and cover and let simmer for 15-20mins strain out the nuts and cardamom pods, pour into cups sweeten if needed. This is a HUGE fat burner and it aides in digestion. my husbands aunt and sister makes it after every meal when we are in Abbattabad or Islamabad. It is so good!!! You can add warmed milk to it too and it is so creamy and rich.

That could be for phase 4 LOL. Lots of dairy but one cup will fill you up! I add cinnamon to mine to kick it up :)
