Warm & Cozy Homemade Chai
Serves: 6
Recipe was adapted from epicurious.com
  • Fresh ginger, sliced thinly (about 2 inches)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 teaspoons black peppercorns
  • 10 whole cloves
  • ¾ tsp ground cardamom (or about 6 pods if you have them available)
  • 5 cups water
  • 6 bags of black tea (I used darjeeling)
  • 1¾ cup skim milk
  • ¼ cup non-fat half and half
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  1. In a large saucepan, sprinkle ground cardamom into pan. Heat over medium heat to release flavor and aroma. Add remaining spices and crush them slightly with the bottom of a cup or back of a spoon. Add water, bring to boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and allow flavors to develop for about 10-15 minutes. Add tea bags and allow to steep for about 5 minutes. Discard tea bags and strain chai. Return to pan and add sugar and milk. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Serve hot and enjoy.
