DIY- Chai Tea

You can make your own without the use of fancy equipment. Enjoy it hot or cold, extra spicy or not, sweetened or unsweetened. The choice is yours.

-Loose black tea or a few tea bags
-Fresh Ginger
-Clove or Cinnamon sticks
-Cardamom seeds(I used anise seeds)
-Sugar or alternative sweetener

1.First Let the milk and water come to a slow boil
2.Turn down the heat to a simmer and add:
-1 small piece of ginger, chopped up into small pieces
-5-7 crushed, or opened, cardamom seeds
-2 cinnamon sticks broken up, or a few pieces of clove.
-2-3 black tea bags or approximately 6 teaspoons of loose black tea (If you like stronger tea add more).
3. Let the mixture brew for about 30 seconds to a minute (longer if you want stronger flavours) and then remove it from the heat. Allow time to cool and the flavors to blend.
