Coffeebar Chai
A quick tip for all those spices that is difficult to strain - tie up all spices, including the ground spices, into a coffee filter and a twist-tie from bread bags; add the spice bag to the water to boil for a good 20 minutes. I add orange peel and peppercorns to my spice bag. Tea is supposed to be steeped, not boiled, so after the spices are boiled with the water and honey, I turn off the heat and add the tea bags to steep. After the tea has steeped to my preferred strength, I remove the tea bags. Then I add the milk and bring to a light simmer and then immediately remove from heat. ONLY then, do I add vanilla, as vanilla looses a lot of its flavor when boiled. I've seen this exact recipe on an Indian website several years back. Still good, though, and as close to what you can find in an actual coffee shop.

This is delicious! I still like to add marshmallows, though. =)
