is a popular way to prepare tea, with lots of different recipes

served with a milk or cream, and is heavily spiced. Common
spices in chai are cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, pepper,
come to North America from India, and has gained much popularity
at coffeehouses and tea shops everywhere. It's not hard to make
at home, and many of the spices are ones you likely have in your
pantry. Here are a few great chai recipes to try:

hint of cinnamon makes a world of difference.
This one is more elaborate than the others, with quite a complex
array of spices. It's quite a zesty cup of tea.
