    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 http://www.amazon.ca/Vijs-Elegant-Inspired-Indian-Cuisine/dp/1553651847. 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.
