  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.


  • Cook's Note:
  • 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.

Eh. It was okay, it's just easier and much less time-consuming to make it traditionally by adding boiled milk to the sweetend tea mix.

I LOVE this mix. It is better than the Tazo Chai I tried at our local Starbucks. Next time I'll leave out the cloves, because cloves tend to overpower the taste. I added 1/2 t. white pepper a...

WOW!!! I love this mix! I will never buy another premade chai tea again! It is next to impossible to find powdered tea up here in Canada, so instead I brewed some black tea and added the mix s...

This recipe is so wonderful! It tastes just like the mix found in stores (maybe even a little better), is much more cost-effective, and is so easy to make. I cut the sugar down a third, though...
