Chai Tea Mix
For a fresher, more lively taste, try using whole spices and ground them using an electric spice/coffee grinder or mortar and pestle. Makes a nice gift, too.
1/2 cup powdered creamer
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 cup granulated sugar
15 teaspoons instant black tea (or pekoe)
- Combine all ingredients together and store in a tightly sealed container.
Makes about 15 servings.
To Make a Cup of Chai Tea:
1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon Chai Tea Creamer Mix
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 teaspoons honey or your favorite sweetener (optional)
- Combine the Chai Tea Mix with the boiling water and honey, if using; allow to steep for 2 to 3 minutes.
Makes 1 serving.
Tip: The Chai Tea mixture will dissolve much better when vigorously stirred into hot water.
