i can honestly say that today i had the best chai tea i have ever had.

so good in fact that i wanted to share the recipe, which came from the whole food kitchen workshop.

home made chai
6 cardamon pods
6 whole all spice ( i didn't use as i didn't have any)
1  3 inch cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 teaspoon of anise seeds ( i used whole star anise)
1 inch piece of ginger root
2 bags black tea
1 cup of water
3 cups of milk (i used oat milk but use whatever is your choice of milk)
2 tablespoons of honey

using a mortar and pestle grind the spices 
place in a saucepan with the water
bring to the boil
turn off and steep for 10 minutes
add the teabags and bring to the boil again
turn off and steep again for another 10 minutes
strain the spices and teabags
