ChaiCuisinart Original Recipe
While this tea is best prepared with half & half, reduced-fat or soy milk may be substituted.
3 black tea bags
6 ounces half & half
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 star anise pods
1 ½ x ½-inch piece of peeled fresh ginger
pinch orange zest
2 teaspoons honey
1. Put tea bags into an 8-ounce mug. Put at least 8 ounces of water into your kettle and select the Black setting. Pour 2 ounces of the hot water over the tea bags and let steep 10 to 15 minutes.
2. While the water is heating, bring the half & half and vanilla to a boil in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Once the mixture comes to a boil, stir in the spices, ginger and zest. Let the mixture simmer 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Once the tea has steeped, fully squeeze out tea from tea bags, reserving the tea and discarding the bags. Add the steeped tea to the half & half mixture.
4. Strain mixture into an 8-ounce mug and stir in honey.
