Chai Tea

Again, I got this recipe from Cooking Thin! I love her show! And I love this tea!
Sure it's no Starbucks, but it's still very good! And it's fun to make. I like dealing with all the spices. I usually make a third of this recipe for one big serving (for 2 points) instead of eight.

1 (1/4-inch) piece ginger root, peeled and thinly sliced
6 black peppercorns

In a medium saucepan, combine fennel seed, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon stick, ginger root, peppercorns and water. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and steep for 10 minutes. Add the tea, bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer 5 minutes.
