Chai concentrate

So easy. So good. I love having things like this on hand at home. Don’t get me wrong: Starbucks is awesome, but sometimes it just feels good to avoid that $4.50 latté and make something to your own taste for far less money.

2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
3 cups water
8 tsp black tea leaves, or 6 bags
2 cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
6 whole cardamom pods

Boil together in a pot until the sugar and honey have dissolved and the mixture begins to boil. Let simmer for about 8-10 minutes, then strain. This will keep in your fridge on its own and can be diluted with water, more tea or milk and made into a delicious hot drink. You can also add a little vanilla extract to your mug before you drink it.
