Chai Tea

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.
