Chai


Ingredients:
2 cups water
1 cup whole milk or 1/3 cup half & half.*
1 cinnamon stick
8-10 cardamom pods crushed
4 cloves
1/4 inch fresh ginger crushed
4 tsp loose black tea
sugar to taste


In a pot add all ingredients except milk. Bring to a boil then lower heat to simmer. Let simmer for about 5-7 minutes. Add milk. Bring to a boil, lower heat and let simmer for 2 minutes. Turn off heat. Let the tea sit for 5-7 more minutes. Strain and serve.

*If you are watching the waist-line, you can use 2% milk. I believe you might need about 1 1/2 cups.
