Dark Chocolate Chai Latte

Hands-on time 15 mins
Total time 25 mins
Yield Makes 7 cups
Chai is an Indian spiced tea. This rich version is a wonderful complement to a thick slice of Sweet Potato Pound Cake.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 4 ounces chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, sliced
  • 6 cardamom pods
  • 1 star anise
  • 1/4 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 4 regular-size black tea bags

How to Make It

  1. Bring first 10 ingredients and 2 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until chocolate is melted. Add tea bags; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes. Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a heatproof pitcher, discarding solids. Serve warm or chilled over ice.
