Recipe for Chai Tea

Makes 6 cups (approx. 3-4 servings)


  • *2 organic English Breakfast tea bags
  • *3 cups milk preferably raw (my choice) or organic (or try coconut milk or your favorite non-dairy milk for a vegan chai)
  • *3 cups water
  • *6 cardamom pods
  • *6 whole cloves
  • *4 whole star anise
  • *4-6 small cinnamon sticks
  • *4-6 slices fresh ginger about 1/4 inch each
  • *1/4 cup ginger syrup leftover from making crystallized ginger, raw honey, agave syrup, or organic sugar


  • 1. Heat water and milk to the point just before boiling.
  • 2. Add the tea bags and all of the herbs/spices and turn off the heat.
  • 3. Allow to infuse for 20-30 minutes, then add the sweetener and reheat before serving.
  • 4. Pour chai through a fine mesh strainer into mugs. Serve on its own (or with the mini-gingerbread mug toppers which, by the way, are a really fun project to do with kids).
