After reading the reviews we decided to strengthen the tea flavor. So instead of using tea bags we used loose black tea and we boiled it in the milk (make sure to strain it). We also replaced the oil with butter.

This was not good at all. It barely had any flavor and was extremely sweet. I love all of Aarti's recipes, but this one just wasn't good. I would suggest adding more spices and steeping it longer, and adding less honey. It needs to be stronger and less sweet.
Does anyone know of a good strong chai recipe?

I used regular hot dogs for this since I didn't have any sausage on hand. It was pretty good, although I thought it needed more crust and less meat. The batter just needs to puff up more. Also, I think I will add just a little more spice next time, I couldn't really taste them.
