Marty shares, "This is my recipe for homemade Chai Tea, which we drink on cool evenings or for breakfast all the time when camping (my son doesn't like hot chocolate and my husband and I don't like coffee, so this is one thing we all agree on)." The Gustafsons also like to drink this spicy tea iced on hot days.


  • 8 WHOLE GREEN CARDAMOM PODS
  • 8 WHOLE CLOVES
  • 5 WHOLE BLACK PEPPERCORNS
  • 2 3" CINNAMON STICKS
  • 1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced (or 3 pieces SLICED GINGER ROOT)
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 2 Cups water
  • 4 black tea bags (Marty likes Darjeeling)
  • 1-2 tsp. sugar or honey (to taste)
       

Place the CARDAMOM, CLOVES and PEPPERCORNS in a plastic bag and crush slightly with a rolling pin or heavy skillet. Combine the SPICES, milk and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, add the tea bags and let steep for 10 minutes. Strain into cups and add sugar or honey to taste.
