Microwave milk for 60 seconds. Watch to make sure it doesn't boil over.
Put all the spices and tea bags in a heavy bottomed pot. Add the warmed milk.

Personal Notes:
After enjoying this tea at many Indian restaurants and trying many so called "Spiced Chai" ready to drink mixes that didn't satisfy, we found and tweaked this recipe. It isn't exactly what we get at our favorite restaurant but it is close. We'll keep trying until we perfect it :-)
