Making Beautiful Chai..

Having spent 3 months in India I have become addicted to Chai. Spending the equivalent of 12 cents street side for a nice little cup of expertly made Chai. Whiel in india I purchased the tea. But was wondering if anyone had a good method to re-producing this wonderful little beverage Indian style...not S*bucks style ( I cant even bring myself to type those silly words)...A few questions:

Do I need a certain % of milkfat? I think they use a HEAVY milkfat

Do i add a cardamom pod while it boiling?
