Homemade Chai

tea and spicesBy Peggy O’Mara

I’ve had this tea-free recipe since the 1970s, before chai was popular. Now there are many packaged varieties, but making it with fresh spices is easy—and it’s so good.

1 quart water

16 peppercorns

16 cardamom pods

12 whole cloves

6 slices fresh gingerroot

6-7 small cinnamon sticks

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup milk or alternative

Combine water and spices in small saucepan. Boil at medium heat for about 20 minutes. Add honey and milk. Serve.

Serves 2.
