Remove the seeds from the cardamom pods and combine with peppercorns and cloves in a mortar and pestle (or spice grinder). Grind into a fine powder and combine with nutmeg and cinnamon. Set aside.

In a large pot, heat milk, water, tea, sugar, and ground spices. Stir well to make sure the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil (watch for signs of milk burning), and then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Make sure to continue stirring throughout the cooking process.

Pour chai through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth. Serve in individual cups.
