I use "Silk" brand soymilk in place of regular milk and I use brown sugar in place of refined sugar. For the tea I use "Taj Mahal" brand.
My friend Miranda recommended I try this brand of chai. I did and I like it. Not as good as grinding your own spices, but sometimes you just don't have the time. The photo on the back of the box depicting a delicate hand dipping a teabag gives me the feeling of being elegant while drinking this tea. Maybe I'll bring out the white gloves for my next cup.
