2 cups Almond Milk (can sub w/ soy or coconut milk)
1 Black Tea Bag*
1 Cinnamon Stick (can sub w/ ground cinnamon)
2 Star Anise Pods
2 Whole Cloves
1/4 tsp All Spice
1/4 tsp Cardamom
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
Optional: pinch of ground ginger
Optional: your choice of sweetener (honey, agave, coconut sugar, etc) to taste
*Any unflavored black tea will do. I usually use Irish Breakfast tea.
Bring all ingredients, except the tea bag, almost to a boil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. I usually will put mine on low and ignore it while I'm making myself some eggs. Remove from heat and add in tea bag to steep for 2-5 minutes. Pour mixture through a strainer into your favorite mug (I got the gem pictured above on Etsy), or you can just scoop out the anise, cinnamon sticks, and cloves.
