My Chai Recipe

2 quarts water
4 cinnamon sticks
8 slices ginger (thinly sliced)
16 whole cloves
1 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
dash of nutmeg
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
6-8 of your favorite black tea, tea bags (I use 8 but that might be too strong for some), if it is a combination of black and another tea use 8.  If I am using loose tea, I generally use 3 TBSP of tea leaves.

Bring all of this to a boil in a large stock pot, reduce the heat just a bit and simmer for 5 minutes.  Strain immediately.  I use 1 part chai with 1 part soy, almond or coconut milk.  This recipe is so easy to adjust to your liking, if you like it sweeter use a bit more honey or sugar.  Like a stronger ginger flavor just add more ginger etc.
