Poach the Pears: In a saucepan over high heat, bring water, maple syrup, Chai Addict, cinnamon and cardamom to the boil. Add the pears, reduce to medium heat and cover snugly with a wet baking paper, weighed down with a small plate. Simmer for 30 minutes or until soft.
The Syrup: Gently remove pears, set aside and bring syrup to a rolling boil for a further 20 minutes to thicken. Spoon the syrup over the pears.
To serve: Enjoy with coconut ice cream, granola or porridge.
