Chai Spice Tea

Chai Spice Tea
 One of my favorite Chai Recipes. It's a warm spicy brew to warm the insides on a cold winter day.

Chai Spice Tea

2 quarts cold water

1 TB Star Anise
1 TB allspice pods
3-5 TB cardamon pods

Grind the above in a coffee grinder.

After grinding add:

The zest of a whole orange
3 fingers ginger, peeled and rough chopped

Put the all above in a large pot and boil for 5 minutes.

Add a little more than 1/3 c sweetener.  I used 3 dried Stevia Leaves (I grew Stevia this year.) and 3 TB of black tea leaves.

Strain through cheesecloth and cool. Serve in a cup with 50% non dairy milk and 50% tea. Enjoy!
