Lightly crush the cardamom pods and cloves with a mortar pestle.
Add the ginger, spices, and water to a large saucepan and bring to a full boil.
After 3-4 minutes, add the tea bags and reduce heat to low-medium.
Put on the cover and let simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Strain the chai and store in a mason jar or a glass container in the fridge.
To make a cup of chai, mix the concentrate, hot water and steamed milk of choice to taste.
