Amazing, thank you my dear friend:)

Important to know:

Well, any recipe I found, I make it in my way. Original recipe is called Milk thistle chai and contains dairy milk or vegan milk. In this version I use water instead of milk and it works.

Ironically, milk thistle by itself does not contain any milk or other dairy products.
