Chai Tea

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Deborah

A rich and flavourful tea. Bringing the liquid to a boil twice after the milk has been added seems to make it a richer chai tea.

There is no comparison between this cup of Chai Tea and the Chai I buy at the coffee shop - this one is so much better. I agree is was extra work but worth it. I found the combination of spices delicious. Made for PAC, Spring 2008

  1. Crush the cardamom pods with the side of a knife and place in a saucepan along with the ginger, cinnamon, cloves and peppercorns. Add water and set aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and add tea bags and let steep for 10 minutes.
  3. Strain, pressing spices and tea bags with a spoon to remove the rich liquid. Return liquid to pot, add milk and bring to a boil. Immediately remove from heat.
  4. Add honey or sugar to taste and than return to boil twice more, allowing a minute of cooling between each boil.
  5. Serve hot in tea mugs or cups that have been warmed. Makes 6 cups.
