~Chai (Indian Tea) Recipe~

Ingredients:

*4-5 orange pekoe teabags

*1″ cinnamon bark

*1 1/2 tspns fennel seeds

*4 green cardamom seeds

*Whole milk (or substitute)

*5-6 tspns sugar

*5 1/2 teacups water (the actual size of the cup in which tea is served)

Depending on the strength of tea you prefer, use 4 teabags for a milder flavor and 5 for a stronger flavor. The amount of sugar should also be adjusted to your preference. Break the cardamom seeds. Place the cinnamon, fennel, cardamom, sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, add the teabags and let boil for another minute. Add 3/4 to 1 teacup of milk, bring to an almost boil and remove immediately from stove. Remove teabags. Pour tea through a strainer and into a teapot or directly into teacups. Serve while piping hot. Once the chai has cooled, it cannot be reheated.
