Waking up in the chill this morning..brrrr! Nothing nicer than a perfect cup of home made chai, brimming with spices to warm up the heart, soul and bones!!!! Try my slightly tweaked Euro-Asian version for a sublime start to your morning! Snuggle up with a steaming mug of this beautifully scented tea and indulge!

Serves 2

2 cups water
2 cinnamon sticks
4 cardamom pods or 1/4 tsp ground cardamom powder
1 vanilla bean pod
2 whole cloves
1tsp tea leaves
1 star anise
1 tsp fennel
1/2 cup milk


Boil the water and add all the ingredients, apart from the milk and simmer for at least 5-7 minutes minimum.

Add the milk and let your tea come up to the boil at least 3 times, before you take it off the heat and  strain into your favourite tea vessel!

Sweeten with brown sugar if needed. Snuggle up and enjoy!!
