Yields 2 cups of iced tea
1 star anise
3 cinnamon sticks
4 cardamon pods, opened
2 cups water
4 tablespoons of strong black tea
4 1/2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk
In a medium saucepan, add spices to 2 cup sof water. Bring to a boil; remove from heat; let steep for 5-20 minutes, depending on how strong a spice flavor you want.
Add the sweetened condensed milk to the water/spice mixture. Bring the milk and spice mixture just to a boil and remove from heat.
Add the tea to the milk and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes to taste. (Option at this point - reheat to a simmer and remove from heat.)
Strain into a pitcher and refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until cool. Serve over ice.
