Chai Tea Mix
I have never been a fan of tea but on a recent trip to the North Shore of Lake Superior my mother-in-law ordered a chai tea and I gave it a try. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed it so as soon as we got home I went on the hunt for a mix I could whip up so I could have it at home whenever the mood struck.

This chai tea mix is spicy, warm and comforting which is a nice change the hot chocolate I would normally chose when I want a hot drink (I’m not a coffee drinker either). It tastes great when mixed with water but I prefer milk for the creaminess it lends the tea.

This recipe makes a huge amount so be prepared to drink up or throw some in a jar and tie a pretty ribbon around it with mixing directions for a fun little gift.

    I found this recipe last winter and just love it. I am not a coffee drinker and this is a good replacement. What I do is brew a cup of tea, usually chai and use the mixture as a creamer. Not so many calories.
