Reduce heat to medium-low, partially cover pan, and simmer gently 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add tea bags and steep 5 minutes. Discard tea bags. Add milk and honey. Bring tea just to simmer over high heat, whisking until honey is combined. Strain chai into cups or teapot and serve hot. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge and re-heated or served iced!
