Chai - tea
In a sauce pan with a tight fitting lid combine the following:

8 cups water
6-10 quarter sized slices of fresh ginger root
10-15 cardamom pods, cracked open
1 teaspoon of fennel seeds
4 cloves
1 or 2 pieces of dried orange rind
8-10 black peppercorns

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for at least 20 minutes.
Simmer longer for a richer, spicier flavor. This tea can be sweetened with
raw honey. You can also add almond milk or coconut milk or add one green
tea bag for a stronger tea.
