Directions
Add 2 tsp of chai in a moral and pestle and crush the spices to the release flavour. Transfer the crushed spices to a small saucepan, add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of milk. Bring the tea to a slow simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let steep for 2-3 minutes. Add sugar or honey to taste. Strain into a mug. Chai can also be enjoyed over ice.

Tip – I encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea and the length of the steep time to find your desired strength. Water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the flavour of chai tea. Enjoy experimenting.
