    • 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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
