Masala Chai

Mmmmm……..warm, spicy, milky, sweet, fragrant tea. Why buy it from a cafe or pre-packaged when you can make it fresh?
There are variations to the spices in different regions of India (as well, I’m sure, from one household to another), but I like to use fresh ginger, cinnamon, peppercorns, whole cloves, a dash of nutmeg, and whole cardamom, all which can be found in a well-stocked kitchen. 

After the spices boil together, add some perfumed tea, milk, and sugar and let them simmer.

Using a strainer to catch the whole spices and tea leaves, pour into a cup and enjoy!
