Warming Chai Tea
2 Cinnamon Sticks
1 Tsp Black Peppercorns
1 Tsp Cloves
3 Whole Aniseed Stars
1 oz of loose Black Tea
1 Tbsp Green Cardamom Pods
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 cup of Milk (Cow or Almond or Coconut)
Add all ingedients (except loose tea) to a Mortar & Pestle and crush down just enough to break cinnamon sticks and open cardamom pods. You may also pulsate in a coffee griner or food processor for a few seconds.
Fill your teapot with water, add crushed ingredients, loose tea and sugar and.
Soft boil for 10 minutes, but no longer, as the properties of the spices may start to be lost after that.
Remove from heat, add milk and stir.
Strain into your cup for a wonderful, warming and sweet treat!!
