The chai that is so popular now is a packaged variation on yogi tea, a traditional East Indian tea. Try this yummy tonic on a morning when you have some time.
One-quart pure water
12 whole cloves
6 slices of fresh ginger root
6 to 7 small sticks of cinnamon
Boil at medium heat for about 20 minutes. Then add ½ cup honey and ½ cup soy, rice or cow's milk. Have the milk slightly warm before adding.
Variation: You can add a tea bag of black or green tea or steep a few leaves in the yogi tea if you like.
