Print this Recipe    Masala Tea (Chai)

6 cups cold water
1/3 cup milk, or to taste
1 stick cinnamon, (3")
6 whole green cardamons
4 whole cloves
12 black peppercorn, optional
12 teaspoons sugar, or to taste
6 teaspoons leaf tea (heaping) or tea bags (orange pekoe)

Combine water and milk in a deep pan, and bring to a boil. Add
the spices and sugar. Stir to blend, and turn off the heat. Cover
the pan and let the spices soak for at least 10 minutes. Add the
tea leaves or tea bags and bring the water to a second boil. Reduce
heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Uncover, check the color
and taste, and if desired add more milk and sugar. Strain the tea
into a warm teapot and serve immediately.

Note: This is the way traditional spiced tea is made. You may,
however, omit the milk or sugar, or both, in which case reduce the
quantity of tea to 2 heaping teaspoons or 3 tea bags.
