Chai Iced Tea


I absolutely love hot chai tea, and this iced chai tea recipe is so much better!


  • 2 tablespoons black peppercorns
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 star anise
  • 6 green cardamom pods, lightly crushed
  • 8 black tea bags
  • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup milk


  1. Bring the peppercorns, cinnamon sticks, star anise, cardamom pods and 4 cups cold water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Reduce the heat, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Turn off the heat, add the tea bags and let steep 5 minutes.
  4. Discard the tea bags, strain the tea mixture into a large measuring cup and discard the spices.
  5. Let the tea mixture cool at room temperature for at least 10 minutes, then chill completely in the refrigerator, about 1 hour.
  6. To serve, fill 4 tall glasses with ice.
  7. Divide the chilled tea mixture among them.
  8. Whisk the sweetened condensed milk and milk together in a small bowl or large measuring cup until smooth, then pour 1/4 cup into each glass.
  9. Stir and serve immediately.
