Chai Tea

Chai tea is originally from India. It is a century old drink but has become so popular throughout the world. People make them in many different ways. I first tried chai tea years ago, but had never made it myself.

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


  1. Bring to a boil all ingredients except for bag black tea. Simmer for five minutes.
  2. Add the bag of black tea to the simmering spices and brew for another five minutes
  3. Add hot milk or coffee creamer (prefer using coffee creamer)
  4. Add sugar
