Isn't he cute? He stays all summer long hiding in the cupboard, but spends all winter on my stove top.
This year I found a Chai Tea Mix recipe that is delicious and have been making it ~ drinking a lot of it ~ and sharing with friends.
Chai Tea Mix
1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer
1 cup French vanilla flavored powdered non-dairy creamer (I used sugar free)
2 1/2 cups white sugar (I used Splenda)
1 1/2 cups unsweetened instant tea (I used unsweetened decaf)
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cardamom (I use just a small pinch, or this can be left out)
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 (I did more) until the mixture is the consistency of fine powder. Keep in sealable jar/container.
To serve, stir 2 heaping Tablespoons Chai tea mixture into a mug of hot water. Use a little more if your mug is large.
I use substitute sugar, most of the time. On a diet and you can't tell the difference in taste.
Try it, I think you'll like it. You can't really taste tea - it's more like a latte.
Let me know what you think.
Have a great evening.
