Masala Chai and a Giveaway!!

Chai tea is one of my all time favorite drinks- it's sweet and creamy and spicy all in one.  It's delicious hot or iced and I could drink it all day!  Here's a simple recipe to make it at home, just as good as anything you'd find in a coffee shop.  Oh, and notice my cool handwarmer mug?  My husband won it for me at a silent auction for the FFA a few years ago.  They are made by a local pottery studio and I am going to be giving one away to one lucky reader!!  See the bottom of the post for instructions on how to enter.

2 cups water
2 tea bags
1 whole black peppercorn
2 cinnamon sticks
2 whole cardamom pods
2 whole cloves
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk         
Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium, and stir in the tea bags, peppercorn, cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods, and cloves. Let boil for 1 minute.
Pour in the condensed milk, and bring back to a boil. Remove from the heat, strain into cups, and serve. Serves 3.
