  • First, crush the cardamom pods, cloves, star anise, and peppercorns in a mortar and pestle.
  • In a small pot, place the crushed spices, 2 cups of water, ginger, cinnamon sticks, and tea bags.
  • Bring to a boil. Immediately remove from the heat, and remove the tea bags from the mixture.
  • Let chai stand for 20 minutes to cool down and develop flavor.
  • Pour the chai mixture through a strainer to remove the spices. Set aside
  • In each of two mugs, brew a shot of expresso.
  • Then add to each mug ½ cup of the chai mixture, ½ cup of milk, and 1 or 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, to taste.
  • Add a handful of ice cubes to each mug. Stir to combine. Add more milk or syrup if desired.



  • You may leave out the espresso if you prefer. If you don't have an espresso brewer, you can substitute regular coffee or cold brew concentrate.
