Lynn demonstrates how to make homemade Chai Tea. This is a great drink for the cold winter months and very easy to make.
Place cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger, peppercorns and water into a small pot and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to let steep for 10 minutes.
Return pot to heat and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, add tea, cover and set aside to let steep for 5 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, discarding solids, then return liquid to the pot. Stir in sugar and milk and heat over low heat for 1 minute. Pour into cups and serve. Garnish with cinnamon stick, if desired.
