1 Stick (1.5-inch) cinnamon
3 -(up to)
4 Cardamoms (with shell)
2 -(up to)
3 Peppercorns

1/2 ts Ginger powder

Here is the method of how to make chai as you requested:

1. Add water in pan.

2. Add sugar, tea leaves and spices.

3. Bring to boil and simmer for a minute or so.

4. Add milk.

5. Bring to boil and simmer for 3-5 minutes.

6. Strain tea in teapot.

To make chai for one person, one needs: 1 cup of water, see 1. above. 1
teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of tea leaves and 1/4 teaspoon of spices, see
2. above. (depending on how sweet, strong and spicy) 1/4 cup of milk, see
4. above. (depending on how milky)

NOTE: this tea is made with water but equally can be made with milk.

Spices can generally be proportioned as follows: A. 1 one 1.5 inch
cinnamon stick. B. 3-4 cardamoms (with shell). C. 2-3 peppercorns. D. 2-3
cloves E. 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder.

Grind into a powder the items A-D and add E.

In winter fresh ginger chai is very good, add 1cm2 chopped ginger with the
spices. Can also add pepper at the same time to give a warm feeling.

The spice list I mentioned is not complete. We usually add about 10 to 12
different types of spices for chai ground together. I am sorry I do not
know the names of them in English.
