Big Pot of Chai

Strangely, during the hottest part of Summer (so far, at least) I find myself in a conversation on Facebook about how to make chai.

My wife and I, during the winter, often keep a pot going for a week or so. (By the end of that time we're sick of chai and switch back to other teas.)

To make a big pot of chai, use two tea balls and a big sauce pot. In one tea ball put plain black tea. In another put whole spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, black pepper, ginger, star anise, and allspice.

Serve with a ladle, filling a mug half-way and then adding milk for the other half.

Change either tea ball as needed.
