Hot Chai Tea is comforting on a chilly day. This chai tea mix is quick and easy to mix up. Store it in the pantry in a repurposed glass jar.
Chai Tea Mix A Perfect Gift Idea
My sweet sister-in-law made & gifted to me some of her homemade chai tea mix. I was thrilled, I absolutely love her Chai Tea! She even gifted the tea mix to me in a repurposed glass jar. Some people just GET me. Love!
So I used my laser printer and some regular ole shipping tape to make a fun customized label for the jar.
Now my chai tea mix stands ready to whip up at a moment’s notice. What a delightful, comforting drink when it’s cold outside.
But when I shared how wonderful it tasted, the followers of my Facebook Page begged for the recipe. So I asked my SIL to share her recipe and she was happy to do it. (thanks Angela!)
The recipe she shared with me is below. She noted there are several ingredients but it’s super quick & easy to mix up.
She also said when she makes this homemade chai tea mix she always quadruples the recipe.
That way she can make enough to gift to others and also have enough to last for herself to enjoy all year long too. She mentioned that this tea mix has a long shelf life.
All I know is that it’s a wonderful gift and I’m so grateful to her for gifting it to me. It’s delicious, decadent and comforting.
Love, love, LOVE!
And now, as requested, we’re sharing the recipe with you too. Enjoy!
Homemade Chai Tea Mix

Browsing on Pinterest tonight and noticed this great post…. So glad to share and hope others will enjoy as much as I do. The year I decided to give as a gift brought me great joy when others fell in love with it too. The jar I used to gift it in was the one the instant tea came in. I find even when it is not cold outside but maybe I have had a long day or allergies give me a scratchy throat a cup of Chai tea makes everything better.
Please share, make it often and Enjoy
That’s a good point about relief of a scratchy throat, Angela. And I love, love, LOVE this tea!! Such a comfort sipping it. ~TxH~
Thank you, I can’t wait to try this. Already added the ingredients I don’t have to my grocery list.
It’s deeeeee-licious Marie. An especially comforting hot drink on these cold days of winter. ~TxH~
Please thank your Sister in Law for us!
I sure will, Laurinda. She’s made this mix for me before too and she knows how much I love it. What a great gift!! ~TxH~
