Notes

When preparing the priming sugar, add 1/2 cup honey, 3/4cup corn sugar, and 2-3 bags of chai tea to approx 1 1/2-2 cups of water. In another 2 cups of water simmer 1 vanilla bean- split, scraped and chopped, 2-3 cinnamon sticks, 3-5 cloves, 1/2 tsp of whole black peppercorns, 3-5 whole allspice seeds, and about 2inches of fresh ginger- peeled and chopped. Allow to boil for at least five minutes. Strain this liquid into the bottling bucket with the priming sugar mixture. (Spices can be adjusted to taste. I'm approximating all measurements)
