Chai with Cardamon and Ginger

I really like the combination of spiciness from cardamon and ginger and sweetness from honey.

A cup of chai always calm me down for sure.

Chai with Cardamon and Ginger
Yield: 2

1 cup whole milk
1 cup water
2 bags black tea, package removed
7 pods green cardamon
2 slices fresh ginger
2 tablespoons honey

Sandwich the cardamon pods between paper towel, and smash  by using a rolling pin.

In a saucepan, add all the ingredients. Bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
*Keep an eye on it not to boil over.

Strain through fine sieve and serve.

Choose black tea such as Ceylon, Assam or English Breakfast. I like to use tea bags because leaves are very fine and flavor comes out nicely.
