1 1/2 cups
instant tea powder
powdered non-dairy creamer
dry milk powder
Really enjoyed this. For those of you that can not find Vanilla Powder, try looking for Vanilla Sugar made by Oetker in the baking aisle. It's the same thing.
Excellent! I too bought 8 oz. at a home show and it was $10, I made 48 servings for less than $5. It's too delicious!!! Although I doubled the powdered sugar.
I've been looking for an instant chai recipe and was glad to find this one. It's very good. I doubled the confectioner's sugar. Since I couldn't find vanilla powder, I used French Vanilla flavor powdered non-dairy creamer. I prefer mine fairly strong, so I used 6 heaping tsp. mix in a mug. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!!!
I am very anxious to try this recipe but am wondering if someone could tell me what type of "instant tea powder" they used? I am not sure what this is? Thanks
A tip to find some less expensive cardamom: look in the bulk section of health food stores. I found some for $20.49 per POUND, instead of $7 or $8 an ounce in the grocery.
I bought chai tea from a home party which was rather expensive. This recipe is GREAT and costs much less. Note: I did add a 1/2 cup more confectioners sugar as I preferred a sweeter tea.
This tastes super! I did have a few problems, like don't do this in a blender (I don't have a food processor) It made a huge mess, BUT, it was well worth it! YUMMMMMM. And I can't find vanilla powder locally, so I have ordered some, but for now, I add a drop of vanilla to the hot water and it tastes great. This was great. Thanks for the recipe. Even my husband loves it. He was amazed that it was not the home/show tea and that I had made it myself.
Great recipe. I have made this many times. I was unable to obtain vanilla powder so I substituted with Carnation french vanilla non-dairy creamer. I add two 8 oz bottles and also cut the tea back to one cup.
