41/2 Cups of water
3T ground ginger (or 1 inch fresh)
2 whole star anise
1/8 t. nutmeg
1 1/3 t. cardamom
1 1/3 t. cloves
Couple shakes of black pepper
pinch of corriander
1 T of vanilla
5 large black tea bags
3 small orange spice tea bags
Start by adding all of the spices and water to a pot. Bring to a full boil, then turn down heat to medium low and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the tea bags and cover to steep for 20 minutes. Add the vanilla and stir. Once cool, pour mixture through a fine mesh sieve or a cheesecloth. I found a cheese cloth worked best to get the majority of the spice out for the perfect balance.
Use equal parts concentrate and your favorite milk. I love mine with unsweetened coconut milk or goats milk. Jared likes his with regular dairy milk. You can drink this heated or over ice for a nice cool latte.
If you prefer more sweetness, add some honey to taste. If you find this too spicy, try running it through the strainer another time. This does best kept in the fridge so you can pull it out whenever you are craving a tasty treat.
You can find similar bottles to the one I used here:
Bormioli Rocco Giara Clear Glass Bottle With Stopper, 33 3/4 oz.
Hop to it! That way you can hurry up and relax!! Enjoy!!
