    TheJourneyman's Note:

    This is a fast and simple way to make a large pot of Chai tea for company or to put in the fridge for a weeks worth of Iced Chai! This recipe comes from Vikram Vij's brilliant Indian Cookbook, found here I have changed the method and measurements slightly. This is a very basic recipe that is open to extensive modification. Try it with whole allspice, cloves, a cinnamon stick, or even dried apple peices! The possibilities are endless! I do this on the stovetop, but it would also be very possible to boil the water in a kettle first. I find allowing the spices to sit in the water as it boils enhances the flavour.

      Once steeped, add milk (if using).
    7. 7
      Pour the mixture into teacups with a tea strainer or filter to filter out the whole spices. (Unless you really enjoy a mouthful of cardamom! (I know I do.)).
