Real Delicious Chai

You will never drink the stuff out of a box or happily order chia from coffee shop ever again, not after making this.  I wish I could remember where the recipe came from (somewhere online, she was a genius!) If you find this and it's your recipe, please let me give you credit! It's so good with just the right amount of spice and sweet.  You would be remiss to not try this.

1 TBL peeled chopped ginger root
1 cinnamon stick
3-4 peppercorns
1 tsp fennel seed
1/4 cup sugar
loose black tea (or two tea bags)
milk or cream

Bring 3 cups of water to a boil.  Add ginger, cinnamon, peppercorns and fennel seed.  Keep at a low boil for 3-4 minutes.  Add sugar and stir to dissolve. Add tea and simmer for 4 minutes. Strain into tea pot. Pour into cups and add milk or cream.  Drink and enjoy!
