To start the chai, combine the milk and water in a pot over medium heat.
*Note: For a non-dairy Chai, use either almond milk, coconut milk or soy milk instead of regular milk.
Add the cardamom pods, cinnamon stick, star anise, cloves, whole peppercorns, ground ginger, orange peel, and sugar. Whisk everything together and let it come to a slight boil, then turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 5 minutes.
Bring it back up to a boil and add the teabags. Turn off the heat and let steep for about 2 or 3 minutes. Once steeped, strain the chai and serve.
Chai will keep for quite a few days in the refrigerator and is also great served cold over ice.
Most people that have tried Chai tend to have a preference as to how they like it. Feel free to play around with the spices to find the right blend for you.
