Prep: 5 minutes | Cook: 15 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes
  • 4 bags
    black tea
  • 1 cup
  • 2 inch
    piece fresh ginger, cut into pieces
  • 1 teaspoon
  • 1 teaspoon
    cardamom seeds
  • 1 teaspoon
    black peppercorns
  • cinnamon sticks
  • 1 teaspoon
    ground nutmeg
    star anise (optional)
    muscavado/brown sugar or honey
  1. In a small plastic bag, combine the peppercorns, cloves and cardamom. Use a heavy mallet or skillet to crush the spices into coarse pieces.
  2. In a saucepan on medium heat, combine the milk, crushed spices, cinnamon sticks, ginger pieces, and fresh ground nutmeg. Allow the milk to come to a gentle boil, then cover and turn off the heat. Allow everything to steep for about 15 minutes.
  3. While the spicy milk steeps, bring water to a boil. Combine the 4 tea bags with two cups of boiling water. Allow the tea to steep for about 4 minutes and discard the tea bags. Add the tea to the warm spicy milk.
  4. Put a fine mesh sieve or coffee filter over a pitcher, and strain the spice chunks out of the tea. Put one tablespoon of muscavado sugar or honey in each cup and pour the tea latte on top. Stir and enjoy warm.
