Indian Masala Chai Spice Mix Recipe Tastes Phenomenal & Saves Money by Donna John
Chai tea used to be the only reason I went to coffee shops. That's all I would order. Now, at some coffee shops, I'm paying over $6 for a chai latte. Insane! Madness! What to do? Find a way to make a mug of spicy chai tea at home.
This Indian masala chai powder recipe transforms a cup of tea into a tea experience. With cloves, cardamom, black pepper, fennel, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, the flavor is phenomenal – as are the health benefits of chai tea.
Simply brew a cup of tea to your desired strength, and add in about 1/4 teaspoon (that's it!) to the mug and stir. Then sit back, relax and enjoy. You could add a little creamer, half and half or milk if you like a creamier chai, which I do.
