Wife and daughter drink Teavana Samurai Chai. On the rare occasion I want a tea latte I do "London Fog" same thing just with double strength Earl Grey.
Yes I put the BDB and CC1 in the same class, yes i have a reason for leaving SCG off my list, yes it is my opinion, yes it is subjective as opinions are by definition, no don't start a flame war because you disagree.

Look into buying from Chai Direct. Entire online store devoted to chai and chai concentrates.
My personal favorites are the blue and black chai from Chai company. A lot of the local cafes around me serve it too.
As for a recipe I froth my own loose leaf Masala Chai in with the milk/soy and let steep for 2 min and strain into cup. It's really really good with vanilla soy. (10 g tea to 8 oz milk/soy. Steam to 160'F, steep for 2 min, strain and serve)

I like my chai nice and simple, I usually just boil water with ginger in a pan. Than I add the Tea (any Black Tea, Lipton will do) cinnamon and milk (which destroyes the antioxydants I heard). Than just strain it and there you have it.
