Serves: 4 person(s)
Preparation Time: 15 mins
1 (4-inch) cinnamon stick
8 whole black peppercorns
1 whole vanilla bean
2 cup water
1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled
4 tsp loose black tea or chai tea (or 4 tea bags)
2 cup reduced-fat 2% milk or plain soymilk
1/2 Tbsp honey
1/2 Tbsp sugar
Bring the herb and water mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat and simmer gently for 3 minutes. Cover the pot and remove it from the heat. Steep the spices for up to 20 minutes. The longer you steep them the spicier the tea will be.
Uncovered, return the pot to medium-high heat and bring it back to a
boil. Add the tea (or tea bags) and milk. When the mixture is about to boil again, stir in the honey and sugar. Strain the chai and pour it into mugs to serve.
