INGREDIENTS
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
3/4 teaspoon whole cloves
2 whole cinnamon sticks
1 star anise pod
5 cups half-and-half
1 cup water
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1x1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled
1/4 teaspoon orange zest
6 black tea bags (Darjeeling or Ceylon is recommended)

Instructions
Place the peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon sticks and star anise in the bowl of the Cuisinart Spice Grinder. Pulse 2 to 3 times, and then process until finely ground, about 30 seconds. Reserve.
In a medium saucepan set over medium-low heat, bring the half and half, water and vanilla to a boil. Once the mixture comes to a boil, stir in the reserved spices, ginger and orange zest. Let the mixture simmer 10 to 15 minutes. Add the tea and let simmer 4 to 6 minutes.
