Chai Tea

It has been very cold over the past few days, and sometimes a normal cup of tea just doesn’t cut it.

This hot, milky, spiced tea is perfect to lift your mood and keep you warm on those cold rainy days and it is in very high demand at our house indeed!

This recipe makes two mugs of Chai tea.

What Will I Need?

2 cups cold water
2 tea bags
2 tsp raw sugar
1” cinnamon bark
6 cardamom pods
6 cloves
6 black peppercorns
1/4 tsp ginger, ground
1 cup milk

What Now?

1.    In a saucepan over a high heat, add the water, tea bags, sugar and spices and boil for one minute.

2.    Stir through the milk, and then return to the boil, before straining into a tea pot or individual mugs and serve hot.
