    I hope you don't mind me redirecting you to an old post, but there was a fairly lengthy discussion about chai a few months back.

    Hi there - here's the one I use:

    CUP OF CHAI

    1 cup green cardamom pods
    1 cup chopped cinnamon
    1 cup chopped dried ginger
    1/4 cup dried orange peel
    1/4 cup whole cloves
    1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns

    Combine ingredients. Store in an airtight container.

    To use: Measure 1 heaping tablespoon per cup of water and simmer 20 minutes. Turn off heat, add 1 teaspoon of your favorite black tea; steep 5 to 10 minutes. Strain and sweeten to taste with honey and milk. Makes about 3 cups chai tea blend.

    Recipe from The Kansas City Star newspaper – 12/12/01.
