Chai is the speedball of the drink world. Soothing warm milk with a caffeine kick I love the spice blend of the recipe, I can’t remember where I found it, but it rocks!

Ingredients:
3 c water
3 c whole milk
2 whole cloves, lightly crushed
1 4-inch cinnamon stick
1 (1/2-inch) piece fresh ginger, sliced thinly
1 TBSP fennel seeds, lightly crushed
6 whole cardamom pods, lightly crushed
5 TBSP sugar
3 TBSP unflavored loose black tea

Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Heat over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serves 4.
