These cookies were easy to make and extremely chewy, but did not really taste like chai I was a little disappointed, although they are still tasty!

VERY easy to make and so moist and delicious.

Odd but appealing

I love cardamom, I love Chai Tea. So, I HAD to try these. The texture was somewhat different but the cookies were oddly appealing. The first bite of the first cookie is so-so, but these DEFINITELY grow on you with each subsequent taste. Nit fir everyone, but worth a try!

Chai Tea Chewies

These were easy to make, but they weren't our favorite. I don't think we'll bake them again as there are too many better tasting cookies out there.

Chai Tea Chewies

These cookies are EXCELLENT. They are easy to make, and the taste is superb. I used instant tea with lemon flavor, and I think the added lemon made the taste even better.
