This is so good, and it makes a large batch so it's perfect for company. It's also a lot cheaper that buying chai tea lattes. Plus for me I can use decaf which is really hard to find at coffee places.
2 quarts water (8 cups )
8 bags black tea (you could really use any plain tea)
3/4 cup sugar
16 whole cloves
5 cinnamon sticks ( like it much better with 2)
8 slices fresh ginger (I used a couple dashes of ground ginger)
Combine ingredients in crockpot. Cover and cook on high 2 - 2 1/2 hours.
Strain mixture; discard spices. Can be served warm or refrigerated for up to 3 days. (I think it goes a little longer really)
To serve mix with milk. The recipe suggests 1 cup milk for all the tea, just before serving. We however drink it by the individual glass and do about 3/4 tea to 1/4 milk, but it's just a matter of taste. I also really like it cold in the summer.
