Traditional Chai spices infused in organic unfiltered apple juice creates a warming holiday drink. My favorite apple juice is Santa Cruz and comes in a gallon jug.
4 one-inch slices of fresh ginger
2 two-inch cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
1 tsp. freshly ground cardamom
1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
dash of ground nutmeg
1 tsp. whole fennel
6 whole star anise
1 black tea bag
4 cups of organic unfiltered apple juice
Combine apple juice and spices in a medium sized saucepan. Bring to a boil and then simmer for an additional 10 minutes before adding the tea bag. Simmer a few minutes more before serving.
