Sometimes you just need some quiet.
Slip away from the race of everyday life and enjoy a moment alone or with a loved one.

1 T whole cloves
3 cardamom pods, crushed
½ t peppercorns, crushed
2-3 strips orange peel
3 t. black tea leaves, in diffuser (or 3 black tea bags)

Assemble a spice pack by putting spices and orange peel in a tea bag or large diffuser. (Alternately you can leave spices loose, just strain them out at the end.)
Bring water to a boil, lower heat and simmer spice pack for 15-30 minutes depending on how spicy you like your Chai. Remove from heat and add tea, steeping for 5 minutes.
