  • 10 whole cardamom pods
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 5 bags black tea of your choice (or 5 tbsp loose leaf tea in a tea strainer)
  • 3-4 cm fresh ginger
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/3 cup brown rice syrup (or maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar...)
  • 1 tsp whole black peppercorns
  • 1 tsp whole coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp whole fennel seeds (or two star anise)
  • 3 cups water (750ml)


  • Using a mortar and pestle, gently pound the cardamom pods, fennel seeds, coriander seeds and black peppercorn. 
  • In a saucepan combine all the water and spices together and bring to a gentle simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Take it off the heat and add in the tea bags and brown rice syrup. Remove the tea bags or tea strainer after 4 minutes, then allow the mixture to cool completely.
  • Strain out the spices and pour the chai tea concentrate into a clean, sterilised bottle. 
  • Warm 1/2 a cup of your favourite milk along with 1/2 cup of chai tea concentrate and enjoy with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon on top.
