Chai Tea

Lynn demonstrates how to make homemade Chai Tea.  This is a great drink for the cold winter months and very easy to make.


  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 6 whole green cardamom pods
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 1 (1-inch) piece ginger root, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 whole black peppercorns
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 single-serve black tea bags or 1 tablespoon loose black tea
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup milk

Place cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger, peppercorns and water into a small pot and bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside to let steep for 10 minutes.

Return pot to heat and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat, add tea, cover and set aside to let steep for 5 minutes.  Strain through a fine mesh sieve, discarding solids, then return liquid to the pot.  Stir in sugar and milk and heat over low heat for 1 minute.  Pour into cups and serve.  Garnish with cinnamon stick, if desired.
