Heat water in a pan, add in the whole spices, sugar, and tea bags. Let it simmer for 10 minutes.
Wash and peel the pears. Slice off a thin portion from the bottom of the pears.
Remove the tea bags and gently place them in the pears. Poach the pears for 30 minutes on a low simmer, turning occasionally.
Gently remove the pears using a slotted spoon. Increase the heat and reduce the chai to a syrup. This should take about 10 minutes.
Strain syrup into a heat-proof bowl or pitcher to serve alongside the pears. Place pears in a serving dish or bowl. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, and then douse it all in a drizzle of the beautiful chai pear syrup.
