homemade chai

(image source: unknown, after a lot of searching)

with the weather what its been around here, i am literally pulling out the all the stops to help me handle what seems like the longest winter ever. this is my go to recipe for sunday morning, don’t get outta your pjs, curl up under a blanket, watch movies, read books, don’t leave the house kind of a day. it has always served me right.

chai tea
-4c water
-10 whole cloves
-12 whole cardamom seeds
-12 whole black peppercorns
-2 cinnamon sticks
-1 anise star
-4 slices fresh ginger (1/4in thick)
-2c milk (of choice)
-honey to taste

bring water, spices + ginger to a boil in pot. cover, lower hear + simmer 30-40 mins. add milk, bring to a low boil. turn heat off. strain into cup and stir in honey. you can add green or black tea the last five mins if you’d like.

i do hope this keeps you warm + cozy.
