I joined some lessons in cooking indian food in germany. we produced the
chai in the following way:

Bring water to boil. add tea lives (any low quality black tea as BOP) and
reduce heat (don't switch off). Add the spices: some cloves, cardamom
(squeeze the whole nut a little before adding), cinnamon (stick, not
necessary). cook slowly for one or two minutes. add some milk (not too
much, about 100ml/1l tea) and cook a little more. Then pass all through a
sieve. Sugar on your own taste.

I didn't see any chai with ginger yet, but i think you can also add
stripes of ginger with the spices. I sometimes add some peppercorns, too.
You can add the spices (not the tea leaves) to the cold water, too.
