      Love this!! I made ours dark but not really dark. I also covered the pot and it was more than 2 mugs worth which was a good thing! I did use star anise as that was what I had on hand, I exchanged the sugar for honey to be healthier and toasted chopped walnuts in a dry frying pan as that is what I had. They float but tasted so good in this! I understand this is served by Syrians and Palestinians on the birth of a child. Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.

      Delicious... Will make again. I also added pepper to resemble Chai tea, it was spicy just as I expected.

      I loooooooove this recipe! I don't drink coffee, but this is a great alternative wake-up-and-smell-the-kirfee drink! I find, though, since it takes so long to brew (I brew 6 cups at a time with 3 cinnamon sticks, 6 cloves, 1 tablespoon of aniseseed, and a 2" piece of cracked ginger for 2 hours), I prepare it the night before, then heat it up the next morning. I actually brew enough for two days at a time, so i only have to make it every other day.
