I just ordered some Cardamom and couldn’t wait to make my own chai tea.
Here’s my recipe on chai tea.
It is actually easier than you think.
8 Cardamom pods
Fresh ginger (small piece) peeled and sliced
8 allspice corn (pimienta dulce)
3 star anise stars
4 whole cloves (optional)
A pinch of anise seed
1 stick of cinnamon
1 bag of black tea
Sugar to taste
Milk (hot) or coffee creamer
12 oz. of water
- Bring to a boil all ingredients except for bag black tea. Simmer for five minutes.
- Add the bag of black tea to the simmering spices and brew for another five minutes
- Add hot milk or coffee creamer (prefer using coffee creamer)
- Add sugar
