Who doesn't like a good cup of chai?  It's warm, it's creamy, it's slightly spicy...

 

But at the same time, it's hard to find the perfect one for you.  Some people like a lot of ginger, some want cloves, some people want anise (you monsters!)

So what's the solution?  Make your own!

It takes a little time, so it doesn't necessarily work when you're running out the door, but for times when you can really dedicate yourself to the best flavor, this is what you want to do.

Absolutely everything is adjustable to you!  I tend to change it for myself with a bit more ginger, but do whatever feels right for you!

Spiced Chai

Ingredients

4 cup water

2 inch long cinnamon stick, broken up

1 ½ inch ginger root, peeled and thinly sliced or minced

8 peppercorns

7 green cardamom pods, lightly crushed

5 whole cloves

1/4c Assam tea

Bring your water to a boil with sliced ginger.  Let boil for at least 5 minutes (longer is stronger).

Add cardamom pods and cinnamon, boil for 3 minutes.  Add in cloves and peppercorns, boiling for 2 minutes.

Top off the water if needed (should no more than halfway fill your pot), bring back to a boil, and add the tea.

Boil 10 minutes, turn off the heat and strain into a heat safe container.

(For concentrate, rinse out the pot, pour the tea back into the pot, and simmer until reduced by 1/3.)
