Chai Tea Mix - in Pictures


Here is a great little drink mix that is quick to put together and makes a wonderful gift. I make a few batches of this every year at Christmas time, not just for gift giving, but also so we can enjoy it too because it is delicious!!

Here is the recipe..

Chai Tea Mix
Crystal Miller

2 ½ cups cane juice crystals or white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups powdered milk
1 ½ cups unsweetened instant tea
2 tsp. ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp cardamom

In a small bowl combine cane juice crystal’s and vanilla and allow to dry. After it has dried out break up any clumps. In a large bowl mix all ingredients well. In a blender blend 1 cup at a time of the mix to make it a fine powder. Store in a glass jar or ziplock bag. To serve mix 2 rounded tablespoons of Chai tea mixture into a mug and add hot water. 

Enjoy often during this holiday season!

Here is how it’s made..

You first begin by making your vanilla sugar. You can purchase vanilla sugar but it is kind of spendy but oh so easy to make. Measure out your sweetener (cane juice crystal’s or sugar) and add the vanilla…


Start by mixing it with a fork but then use your hands to make sure it gets incorporated very well. Allow this to dry. I typically mix this together the evening before I make the mix and let it sit out to dry overnight..




In a large bowl combine the vanilla sugar, powdered milk, instant tea and spices…



Mix it well..

You will need a blender to mix the ingredients into a fine powder. I add 1 to 2 cups at a time and blend it finely….


Now put it into canning jars or any type of container you desire for gift giving…
