    It’s evening and the kids are (finally) asleep.  Now it’s mommy-time.  I relax with a cozy blanket and warm cup of this spicy stovetop chai.  You may not have all the spices on hand…but trust me…you’ll be stocking them all winter for this.

    Stovetop Chai for One is a convenient luxury in my life.  I love the spicy kick.  The trick is to get the simmer right so you boil off just enough water.  I find it a medium simmer, which is constant bubbles around the edges but not throughout.

    There are many variations of Chai, some are more sweet and others are more spicy.  The main flavors are Star Anise, Cinnamon, Cloves, Cardamom and Ginger.  I add Black Peppercorns for an added kick!  This stovetop chai is medium spicy and the sweetness is up to you!  I personally like it not too sweet.

    Make Stovetop Chai for One fresh and serve immediately.  Yes, you can refrigerate and reheat, but it just isn’t as good.  If you want to double the recipe to make Stovetop Chai for Two (or a double chai for you, I won’t tell! ) do NOT double the water.  Increase the water by 6 oz and double everything else.
