Homemade Chai Tea
Even if it takes longer to make than it does to drink, a real chai tea is like having your soul awakened from the inside. Yes, I thought of that myself. Chai tea aids digestion, is full of antioxidants, and gives you a light caffeine boost, so it is a pretty swell option for the afternoon slump (not that you get those when you eat right… but any excuse to stop for tea!)
In a big teapot, preferably in a charming pastel colour, brew for several minutes:
3 teaspoons of black tea 
1 crushed cinnamon stick
1/2 a Vanilla bean, chopped
2 slices of ginger 
1/2 a teaspoon of whole cloves
1/2 teaspoon of cardamon pods
a couple twists of cracked black pepper (No really, it helps bring out the sweetness of the spices)
Half a grated green apple
Serve with warmed milk of your choice (I find non-dairy milks like soy or almond work better), and stir in some organic honey to taste. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon for added class and flavour.

I know it takes time, but some of the best things in life just do. Just trust me on this one!
