There's just no need to buy a chai mix when you can make it so easily at home, especially if you can buy your spices loose and use them right away so they don't lose flavor. Here, we make a homemade chai, then mix it with sweetened condensed milk for a rich, creamy summer drink that is similar to Thai iced tea.

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Bring the peppercorns, cardamom pods, star anise, cinnamon sticks, and 4 cups cold water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat, add the tea bags and let steep 5 minutes. Discard the tea bags, strain the tea mixture into a large measuring cup and discard the spices. Let the tea mixture cool at room temperature for at least 10 minutes, then chill completely in the refrigerator, about 1 hour.

To serve, fill 4 tall glasses with ice. Divide the chilled tea mixture among them. Whisk the sweetened condensed milk and milk together in a small bowl or large measuring cup until smooth, then pour 1/4 cup into each glass. Stir and serve immediately.
