Citrus Chai Poached Pears

These pears are inspired by a Jamie Oliver recipe. I added more spice, less water and less sugar to get a more intense chai flavoring into the pears. If you love sour and tangy this version is for you!
Sweet and tangy these pears are perfect on a cool autumn evening served alone or with a dollop of ricotta cheese.
