Homemade Chai Mix
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a recipe I found online and have really enjoyed. Typically, I make tea using 1 1/2 cups of water and 2 teabags (not quite double strength) with 1 or 2 heaping spoonfuls of chai mix. I add a spoonful of chocolate syrup for just the right taste. A great way to start the day!
This is a great Chai concentrate mix that I like to give as a gift. It keeps in the fridge for about 2 weeks. The combination of spices is heavenly!
