This is great. Make it and give it to Friends. I left out the ginger and didn't add any extra spices. Tastes great and saves money.


Chai Tea Mix

"Instant Chai tea mix. You can spice it up even further by adding 1 teaspoon nutmeg and allspice, and 1/4 teaspoon white pepper."


• 1 cup nonfat dry milk powder

• 1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer

• 1 cup French vanilla flavored powdered non-dairy creamer

• 2 1/2 cups white sugar

• 1 1/2 cups unsweetened instant tea

• 2 teaspoons ground ginger

• 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

• 1 teaspoon ground cloves

• 1 teaspoon ground cardamom


1. In a large bowl, combine milk powder, non-dairy creamer, vanilla flavored creamer, sugar and instant tea. Stir in ginger, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. In a blender or food processor, blend 1 cup at a time, until mixture is the consistency of fine powder.

2. To serve: Stir 2 heaping tablespoons Chai tea mixture into a mug of hot water.


• You may choose to omit the French vanilla creamer, and use 2 teaspoons vanilla extract instead. To do so, mix the vanilla into the sugar, let it dry, then break the sugar into small lumps. Follow the same procedure as above.
