Chai Tea Base

Your slow cooker has probably earned a permanent position on the countertop this season. Give it a break from stews and roasts to make this aromatic, spicy tea. Honey, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg sweeten and balance out peppercorn, cardamom, and black tea. For a cool twist, serve over ice.

Directions

  1. In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine the water and honey, stirring until honey is dissolved. Add stick cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, peppercorns, and nutmeg.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours. Add tea bags. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve lined with double-thick, 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth. Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  3. For each serving, in a small saucepan heat 1/2 cup of the tea base and 1/2 cup of the milk until steaming.
