Use a mortar and pestel lightly crush the cardamon, cloves, peppercorns, and star anise (alternatively, leave them whole). Transfer the crushed spices to a sauce pan and add the ginger, licorice root (if using) and 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 4 minutes. Take the sauce pan off of the heat and steep for 4-5 minutes. Add the milk and rooibos tea and bring back to a boil. Remove from heat, cover and steep for another 5 minutes. Strain, and serve.
To make an iced version, omit the milk and place the chai in the fridge overnight to steep further. Strain the concentrate, then serve over ice with cold milk.
To make a mocha chai version, stir in 2 Tbs. raw cacao powder at the end.
For a SUPER fun treat, blend the strained, hot, milky chai with 4 Tbs. almond butter.
