Make the chai simple syrup by bringing water and brown sugar to a boil. Turn off heat once the brown sugar dissolves and add tea bag. Steep for at least five minutes. Remove tea bag and chill.
Add the ice cube and bourbon and stir to chill. This also helps the ice cube start to slowly melt into the drink.
Twist the orange peel over the old fashioned glass to release the oil and add to glass. If desired, garnish with a cherry and cinnamon stick. Enjoy!
