Chai Tea: a beverage that is a blend of black tea, honey, spices, and milk.
Spice bag is filled with several cinnamon sticks, and about a Tablespoon of whole allspice, whole cloves and whole coriander, 3 or 4 whole star anise. I also add about 1 teaspoon of ginger and cracked black pepper. This mixture gives a yummy spice flavoring. Sometimes I will add some licorice root as well to change the flavor.
I cut a flour sack to a 6x6in square and place all of my spices in the center and then tie the top.
Once brewed, let the tea sit and seep for about an hour to meld all of the spice flavors.
Fill a glass 2/3 with the tea mixture and add ice and top with milk. I sweeten mine with liquid stevia or local honey.
Have some yummy tea for me! <3
