This is our idea of a simple home chai. No brewing or cooking, just straight out of a kettle.
2 black tea bags (preferably PG Tips, an English brand)
4 fresh ginger slices
2 teaspoons honey
2 tablespoons warm milk or favorite non-dairy milk
In two mugs, put a tea bag, 6 almonds, 2 slices of ginger, and 1 teaspoon of honey in each.
Pour boiling water over each cup, leaving some space at the top for milk. Let it steep for 3 minutes.
Remove the tea bag and pour 1 tablespoon of milk into each cup. At this point, leave the ginger in or take it out. Leaving it in will increase the ginger flavor.
After the tea is gone, peel the almonds, discard the peel, and eat the almonds.
