Chai tea is the prfect finish to a big meal. The subtle sweet flavour will complement your dessert and soothe your stomach at the same time. Perfect.

Serves 4

Chai Tea

  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 2 green cardamom pods
  • 1 ¼ litres water
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 tsp black tea leaves (or 2 teabags)
  • 2–4 cm piece ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp honey, or to taste
  • 1 ½ cups (375 ml) milk
  • Grated dark chocolate or cocoa powder, to serve

Using a mortar and pestle, lightly crush the cinnamon and cardamom (or gently tap them with handle of a large knife or rolling pin).

Place the water, spices, tea, ginger and honey in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low.

Simmer for at least 5 minutes – longer if you want a stronger flavour.

Add the milk, then heat for another 2 minutes; be careful as milk can easily boil over.

To serve, strain the tea into cups and top with grated dark chocolate or cocoa powder.
