Chai tea spices vary greatly. Here a few ingredients produce wonderful results. Green tea and spices are great sources of antioxidants, delivered in every delicious sip. I prefer this with nondairy milk but not soy, which curdles easily.
- Agave syrup
- cardamom pods
- cinnamon sticks
- green tea
- low-fat or nondairy milk
- piece ginger
- In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil with the ginger slices, cardamom pods and cinnamon. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Turn off heat, stir in green tea leaves into water, and let steep for 2 minutes. Add agave syrup, milk and salt, and heat until hot but not boiling over medium heat.
- To serve, strain into cups. Add more agave syrup if desired, to taste.
