Make your own chai tea with cardamon and ginger.
- 1 cup water
- 2 Tbs milk
- 1 cardamom pod, crushed
- 1 tsp tea leaves or a tea bag
- sugar to taste
- 1 slice fresh ginger
Bring the milk,water, and cardamom pod to a boil. Turn heat to low, add the tea, and simmer a minute.
Then turn off the heat and let it sit for a few more minutes. Strain and add the sugar. I found an old newspaper clipping I'd cut out ages ago with a variation to this, which had a slice of ginger added.
