Chai Spice Mix

I love chai spice. Last year I made chai tea mix used whole organic spices, toasted and ground myself, add it to powdered milk, instant tea and suger  and gave it as was great, but the spices were a little heavy that way so this time I just bought organic already ground spice at our local Earth Origins health food nice to get them in any amount you need. Myself I like just the spices so I can ad it to my coffee myself and make it as sweet as I want it or not. I also add it to my steel cut oatmeal, granola, and granola bars. I know there is a lot more you can do with it. Now there are many versions and many different tastes, likes and dislikes. Here is a basic recipe that I go by and it is of course adjustable according to your taste. Just add more or less of what you like and it will be perfect.

Chai Spice Blend
2-3 teaspoons cardamom
2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
1-2 teaspoons ginger
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg or mace
1/4 teaspoon white pepper

and mix

store in an air tight container...add it to your tea or coffee with so sugar and cream or sweet condensed milk and mix and enjoy.
I used it in and on my oatmeal this morning

    1. Lena there are many versions of the mix, some will leave out the allspice, nutmeg,'s a personal taste and the white or black pepper make it a little spicy. I like all the spices in mine!
