Witches Brew Chai

I made this chai the other night and it was delicious!
You start with very precise measurements. Ha! In a pot, add six cups of water and a palm full of each of the following, clockwise...
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • Allspice Berries
  • Cinnamon (or Cinnamon sticks)
  • Black Peppercorns
  • (Half Palm) Nutmeg
  • Ginger (fresh would be great too)
  • Cloves
  • Star Anise (we were out)
  • and a pinch of Cayenne Pepper
Simmer all ingredients for 10 minutes. Then add a palm full of loose black tea and simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Strain the spices and tea, I use a French Press but you could use a strainer with some cheesecloth. The liquid thickens a bit while simmering. Then add 3 Tablespoons brown sugar and 3 Tablespoons honey, plus one cup milk. Pour into mugs and enjoy!
