Chai Tea Recipe

Sorry about the delay on this one folks! Here is Jamie's Mum's Chai Tea Recipe:

cardamom, 1 stick cinnamon, 2 or 3 cloves, 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger, tea, 2 sprigs mint, milk, water
1) boil the cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger then add the mint

2) heat two cups of milk separately (or one cup of milk and one of water) then add the tea leaves just before boiling

3) bring the tea to the boil and add the spiced juices plus sugar to taste.

Let the spices stand for as long as possible before adding the tea. I like to add black peppercorns for a little extra kick.
