Standard Chai

2 cups water
2 teaspoons loose blacktea (Indian preferred)
1/4 teaspoon tea masala
2 cardamom pods
2 teaspoons sugar, divided
1/2 cup of milk
1 tablespoon peeled, sliced fresh ginger

Combine, water, tea, masala, cardamom, 1 teaspoon of the sugar and simmer 5 minutes. Add milk and the rest of the sugar. Add ginger when the mixture comes back to a simmer. In 15 seconds, strain into 2 cups.

Variation:Instead of the masala, use your own spices -- 2 cardamom pods, 1 cinnamon stick, 2 whole cloves, 2 black peppercorns (optional). Prepare as above, adding the ginger when the mixture returns to a simmer.
