Homemade Chai Tea

Chai Tea can be a nice treat, but it can be a bit expensive.  This is a recipe for homemade chai tea that I found on Recipe Goldmine.

It tastes great in a frog teacup.

Vanilla Chai

cups water
3 cardamom pods
3 whole allspice
3 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1-inch vanilla bean
About 1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon black tea (or 4 tea bags)
Milk to taste (regular, nonfat, soy, or rice)

Put water in a saucepan with cardamom, allspice, cloves, cinnamon stick, and vanilla bean. Simmer for 5 minutes, bring to a boil, and pour over black tea. Let steep for a few minutes. Add honey and milk to taste.
