  1. Place the cardamom pods, cloves, star anise, cinnamon sticks and ginger in the blender jug, insert the measuring beaker and process for 9 seconds/speed setting 7. Push the mixture back down into the container with the spatula.
  2. Add the brown sugar and 300 ml water and boil without the measuring beaker inserted for 20 minutes/100 °C/speed setting 2, placing the cooking pot over the lid opening to act as a splash guard. Pour the liquid into another container and leave it to stand, ideally overnight.
  3. Drain it through a sieve and pour it back into the blender jug. Without the measuring beaker inserted, bring the mixture to a boil for 6 minutes/100 °C/speed setting 2. Pour the chai syrup into sterile bottles, seal them and store in the fridge.



This tastes great in hot black tea with a splash of milk, over ice or added to the mix of a spiced Christmas cake.
