You can do that, but you need to brew chai for a little longer IMO that other tisanes, many of the spices take a while to release their flavor.
On that note, if it is a very spicy chai I find it's worth it to simmer the spices in milk, it neutralizes some of the spice and makes a pleasant infusion that I tend to drink on colder days.
