Chai Iced Tea

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.]

Ingredients
Directions

Bring the peppercorns, cinnamon sticks, star anise, cardamom pods 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.
