Spiced Iced Tea

This recipe is another simple one, and while it is definitely not chai, both because of the spices I used, and the lack of milk, it was inspired by various chai recipes I've looked and at drinks I've had over the years.

Spiced Iced Tea
2 black tea packets of your choice (I used Bigelow Constant Comment)
1 cinnamon stick
5 whole peppercorns
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 whole cloves
1/2 cup sugar

1.  Put all ingredients in a small sauce pan with 2 cups of water and simmer for 15 minutes
2.  Pour through strainer into a 2 qt pitcher.  Add sugar and stir until dissolved.
3.  Top off container with cold water and put in the fridge
4.  Wait until tea has cooled and enjoy!
