Ingredients

  • 1 cup water.
  • 3 black peppercorns.
  • 3 whole cardamom pods.
  • 1 cinnamon stick.
  • 4 whole cloves.
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger.
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg.
  • 1 whole star anise.
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder.
  • 1 teaspoon rice malt syrup (optional).
  • 2 cups full-fat milk.

Directions

1. Place all ingredients besides the milk into a medium-sized saucepan. Bring just to the boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes (depending on how strong you'd like the spices to be).

2. Add milk to the pot and lightly simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and strain through a strainer into two mugs.


Note

Dairy-free option: You can substitute the milk for full-fat coconut milk if you prefer.
Pimp this recipe: Add 1/4 teaspoon of ground turmeric for an anti-inflammatory boost.
Make it for the morning: Add 1 teaspoon of black tea into the saucepan with the rest of the ingredients if you're drinking this tea in the daytime.
