    This is how I make my Yogi (Chai) tea. Once you taste this you will never buy it in powdered form again.

    Here is the recipe should anyone not be able to see the video.

    This is for 4 cups

    40 ounces of water
    2 Cinnamon Sticks
    16 Cardamom Pods
    24 Black Peppercorns
    12 Whole Cloves
    4. Slices of Ginger (make them thin because it can be overpowering)
    1 tsp of loose black tea
    2 Cups of Milk (you can use soy/almond)
    Honey to taste

    Bring the water, cinnamon sticks, Cardamom Pods, Peppercorns, Cloves, Ginger to a boil and let simmer for 20-30 minutes.
    Towards the end of the simmer add 1 teaspoon loose black tea. (1/4 tsp per cup)
    Let tea simmer for an additional 3-4 minutes.
    Add 2 cups of Milk. Let it come back up to a slow boil, until it starts to froth.
    Remove from heat.
    Strain and serve.
    I add honey for taste.

    It is so delicious and calming. You can feel the heat from within…perfect for a cold morning.
