if you go to middle eastern stores, or even indian stores cardamon is waaay waaaaay cheaper. stop buying ethnic ingredients at chain grocery stores- they over charge!! same goes with pomegranate juice... or figs... or dates.
I love it when your comics take a turn to the psychedelic side...
Holy cow I'm doing this the second I get home from work. I also love the Oregon Chai stuff, but I'm usually too cheap to buy it D:
Ok, yeah, definitely making a bigger batch next time. Its so incredibly good.
I used to get the best Chai tea from the cafe at Borders when I worked there, for some reason I've never had better! It was so thick and creamy. I bought some chai tea bags the other say and remain unimpressed. Perhaps your recipe will help!
Yeah, they had great Chai...then their cafes became Seattle's Best and the good Chai could never be had again. *tear*
are you planning to publish a book of the various comic recipes you've been making?
(and if not, can i print them out to save for my own use?)
Twinings had a nice Indian Spice Chai in tea bags, which is nice.:D
Oh wow this is the coolest recipe ever! I am going to send it to all my friends with a link back here. :D
Cardamom is a lovely, lovely spice, and makes a fabulous spiced sweetened bread. I reccommend it!
I actually HAD a carton of the Tazo chai syrup that starbucks uses IN MY HAND yesterday while gorcery shopping, and then decided it was way too pricey and kinda scary because I had no idea what was really in it!
I can't WAIT to try this recipe now. My parents live in the city with the highest East Indian population in all of Canada, and we found out the other day that we can get cardamom still in the pods for pretty damn cheap at one of the local markets, I'm gonna steal some the next time I'm there and add it to this!
try Oregon Chai. It's better than Tazo. We use it at our coffeeshop here.
Do you have a PO Box where random fans who happen to live in the Little India
area of Toronto can send you cheap lovely spices?
If random fans were to email me, I'd be happy to send them my mailing address! (My email is Lucylou @ gmail)
Totally making this for my dear, who often turns to the aforementioned nasty-ass powdered "chai." Thanks!
I live with a certain guy who is afraid of cardamom :(

This sounds delightful.
Also, I'm a sucker for a Pimm's Cup. That shit is delicious. Tho I like mine with cucumber AND apple slices, because I am fancy.

P.S. This comic totally reminds me of Lynda Barry's fried-baloney-sandwich comic.
AAAAA ANANTH WON'T STOP FAWNING AT ME TO MAKE THIS FOR HIM
SEE WHAT YOU'VE DOOONNEE
additionally: "The smell will be awesome... LIKE CHRISTMAS!" is my favorite thing today. :D
ooh, I am so excited for this!! I love chai tea and we have a tassimo at home...but you can't buy the chai lattes in Canada. I ordered 3 boxes of it online and it was expensive! This will be much better!

Uhh, I'm pretty sure you can buy chai lattes in Canada. In fact I'm positive you can buy chai lattes in any town that has a decent cafe. Where are you?
