    You'll Need:

    • 1 14-ounce can unsweetened condensed milk (low-fat or nonfat, if desired)
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

      How long does this last in the fridge, before a new batch would need to be made ?

      Our experience has been 10-14 days, but it really tastes best after the first 24 hours so the flavors have time to unite.

      Great idea! I would have to use this fast because I lack refrigeration but I can imagine doing this when "the girls" come over for a visit.

      Have got to try this! I love iced chai but the stuff in the store is so expensive! I keep most of those spices on hand anyway. And the Asian market I go to carries Thai tea. It is delicious on its own.
