Chai Tea

Wednesday, July 2, 2008

What you'll need:

For each litre of water:

  • 12 whole cloves
  • 16 green cardamom pods (crush slightly)
  • 16 black peppercorns
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 slices of fresh ginger (more if you like)
  • 2 tsp black tea
  • 2 cups milk
  • Honey

Procedure:
  • In a pot, add the spices and ginger to the water and bring to the boil.
  • Simmer for 30-40 minutes - top up with water as you go.
  • You can let the spices sit in the water for a few hours or overnight - it can take a little experimenting to get the flavours you like.
  • Add tea, steep for 1-2 minutes, then add milk and heat.
  • Serve with honey.
  • The mix keeps in the fridge without milk for up to two weeks, or one week with milk.
