of the base tea which is then combined with a dairy product.


You can also freeze the tea mixture in ice cube trays and then use them as needed.


Equipment Need

1-large pot

1-strainer

Cheesecloth (0ptional)


Ingredients

2 ½ quarts water

2 Tablespoons Green Cardamom Pods (20g)

2 Tablespoons Ginger Cut and Sift (20g)

1 Tablespoon Whole Cloves (10g)

2 tablespoons Black Peppercorns (20g)

2 Tablespoons Licorice Cut and Sift (20g)

2 Tablespoons Whole Star Anise (15g)

2 Tablespoons Cinnamon Cut and Sift (20g)

1 teaspoon Nutmeg Powder (5g)

1 ounce Black Tea (28g)


Instructions

Bring water to boil; add Cardamom Pods, Ginger, Cloves, Black Peppercorns, and Licorice. Reduce to a simmer, cover the pot, and cook for 15 minutes, turning off.


Next, add Whole Star Anise, Nutmeg Powder, Cinnamon, and Black Tea to the pot, stir, cover, and let infuse for 30 minutes.


If you use all whole ingredients (except nutmeg), strain the tea. It makes clean-up very easy, but if you use powders, you will have to use cheesecloth when straining.


Store the tea in an airtight container, or freeze it in ice cube trays and store them in the freezer.


For each cup of Chai Tea mixture, use an equal amount of the dairy product you choose, such as cow, soy, coconut, oat, or almond milk, and sweeten to your liking (I suggest maple syrup).
