I have been making a batch of chai tea every week so I'm going thru quite a few cinnamon sticks and star anise. As I was straining the batch I made today, I started wondering if there was a way to reuse the cinnamon sticks and star anise either for a second or third batch or for another use. Anyone have experience with this? I hate throwing items out that can be reused in some way.
