There is nothing better than a hot and spicy chai tea on a cold morning to warm you from the inside out and get your motor running! There are a few tasty chai blends on the market, but in the long run it is more cost effective to make your own, and you can tailor it to your specific tastes. I add a piece of dark chocolate to the mix for a little extra dazzle.

You can stock up on the ingredients from your local Indian grocer, where they can be purchased in bulk and at a much cheaper rate than at Coles or Woolworths.

Chai for one (adjust as necessary for more)

Ingredients^
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
2 black cardamon pods
1 green cardamon pod
2 whole cloves
1 cinnamon quill
Pinch of nutmeg
12 whole black peppercorns
1 black teabag
1 piece of dark chocolate
Honey to sweeten to your taste
1/4 cup of milk of your choice

^If you don't have the ingredients in their whole form you can replace with powdered versions. And if you're vegan replace the honey with sugar.

Method
Add the ginger to 2 cups of water in a saucepan on a low heat and simmer for a few minutes.
Roughly chop your chocolate and add to the bottom of your cup in preparation.

Add the teabag and allow it to steep for a couple of minutes.
If you have an espresso machine or milk frother, heat your milk. If not, add the milk to saucepan and heat.
Strain the mix through a tea strainer into your cup, stir through with the chocolate then stir in some honey and serve.

Enjoy a delightful homemade chocolate chai tea today, and share with your loved ones.
