Chai is an Indian spiced tea. This rich version is a wonderful complement to a thick slice of Sweet Potato Pound Cake.
4 cups milk
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, sliced
6 cardamom pods
1 star anise
1/4 teaspoon whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon black peppercorns
4 regular-size black tea bags
How to Make It
Bring first 8 ingredients and 2 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. 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.
Dark Chocolate Chai Latte: Stir 4 oz. chopped dark chocolate and 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon in with first 8 ingredients, stirring until chocolate is melted. Proceed with recipe as directed.

This recipe is fantastic. I love coffe and chai tea. I like to use Coffeemate flavors to sweeten my chai tea. My favorite seasonal flavor is Warm Cinnamon Sugar Cookie. You can replace a 1/4 cup of whipping cream with the falvored creamer and it is delish!
