Have your chai and drink it too!

Mary at my work brought this recipe in. It's great because you can adjust all the spices, sugar and milk to your liking. I like mine with more cinnamon and not as sweet as already made chai latte, I also use soy milk. Thanks Mary! Now everyone can have chai just the way they like it!

Masala Chai

8 cups water
12-14 black pepper corns
12 cardamom pods
12 whole cloves
1 full star anise (with seeds)
3 T Assam tea leafs
1 cinnamon stick
1 inch fresh ginger (peeled and chopped)

Simmer over low heat for 30 mins.
Strain and refrigerate. Add sugar and milk to taste. It may get cloudy but when it's warmed it will clear up.
